Just a quick note to point alert readers to the courageous and honest article "Death, the Prosperity Gospel and Me" in the New York Times Sunday Review by RiAH contributor Kate Bowler. Her open discussion of her cancer is remarkable, as is her new perspective on her work in chronicling the prosperity gospel. Here's an excerpt:
"The prosperity gospel has taken a religion based on the contemplation of a dying man and stripped it of its call to surrender all. Perhaps worse, it has replaced Christian faith with the most painful forms of certainty."
