Shawnthea Monroe is senior minister of Plymouth Church of Shaker Heights, Ohio. She is coauthor (with Shannon Craigo-Snell) of Living Christianity: A Pastoral Theology for Today.
Luke grounds the resurrection narrative in tangible details: the rock-hewn tomb, the linen cloth, the heavy stone, the fragrant spices. The reader can imagine the place and time. Then things fall off the map.
Molly Phinney Baskette's book is not a robust example of the Christian practice of confession. But she does offer a glimpse into the life of a church that is thriving against the odds.
