  1. Bud, What about adding Richard Holloway to your list of authors. I have his ‘Doubts and Loves: What is left of Christianity’ by my bed but would gladly lend it to you, although you might find my many pencil marks distracting!

    1. Thanks for the suggestion, George. I’ll look into it. At first glance, I find several lectures by him. So it looks promising. I’ve read his”On Leaving Alexandria”.

  2. Bud, I opened your “Net Prophets”. I have read DBB “Christianity After Religion”, and our Jesus Seminar Study Group read and discussed, “Christianity for the Rest of Us”. I would recommend her new book, “Grounded, Finding God in the World, A Spiritual Revolution” Her spiritual journey is a lot like mine. I see you have posted stuff on Paul. I would recommend two recent books re: Paul–“The Authentic Letter of Paul; A New Reading of Paul’s Rhetoric and Meaning” . Arthur Dewey; Roy Hoover; Lane McGaughy and Daryl Schmidt and, “The Real Paul, Recovering His Radical Challenge” ; Brandon Scott; both Polebridge Press. yours aye! Rod

    1. Thanks, Rod. I have the first two books of DBB on my Kindle on Mac, where I have read them. I’m working on my latest Facebook page, Dinner Church Movement. https://www.facebook.com/Dinner.Church
      So I haven’t got her latest. Thanks for the heads up on the Paul books. I haven’t seen them. I’ve heard Brandon Scott at our Cal-Nev Conference Retired Clergy retreat. I enjoyed him.
      At the age of 82 I’m preparing to write my first book, on the Dinner Church. I’ll be doing it with Alan Streett, who wrote “Subversive Meals”. Looks like we both continue our studies. Grapes and peas, Bud.

  3. Hi. I’m in Bristol UK and just come across your Web pages on FB. I’m really taken with the dinner church idea and hoping it will catch on here. A friend and Minister colleague of mine wrote her PhD in UK on ‘table fellowship’ I don’t know the title, but her name is Janet Corlett. She’s at Bermondsey Methodist church, South London Mission. I can get more details when I return home.
