“Attentiveness to peculiar narrative identity seems to me an urgent practical enterprise for a religious community that is often so bland that it loses its raison d’etre. The issue is to practice a peculiar identity that is not craven in the face of the moralisms of the right or the left.”

– Walter Brueggemann, quoted in “Almost Christian: What the Faith of Our Teenagers is Telling the American Church”; by Kenda Creasy Dean; p. 61.
