BOLD CHRISTIAN VOICES FROM OUTSIDE THE ECHO CHAMBER
Magenta is a new series that will take you into a journey to heal divisiveness and polarization.
At a time when the culture seems hopelessly fractured across several polarized binaries (left/right, life/choice, secular/religious, etc.), the idea of finding a way to cultivate dialogue across those boundaries is more important than maybe it has ever been. This “Magenta” series—edited by Dr. Charlie Camosy, Associate Professor of Theological and Social Ethics at Fordham University—attempts to trouble, perplex and otherwise challenge these polarized binaries.
The series name signals its resistance to the “blue-state vs. red-state” mode of thinking which has become so dominant in our secular politics and even in the Christian churches.
A COMMUNITY-BASED PROJECT
This series will be more than a series of books. It will be a cultivated community of authors which meets in person for a retreat or other event for prayer, dialogue, and good-old-fashioned fun. In doing so we will not only model the broad goals of the series itself, but these embodied encounters—coupled with dialogue and prayer—will help us uncover more about the school of thought and action that God is working to create through us.
A CROSS-PLATFORM ADVENTURE
This intellectual and dialogical community will from the outset also include readers. Through podcasts, websites, webinars—and constantly on the lookout for new forums—the Magenta Series host a distinct “place” of encounter, carrying forward in a fresh way the mission of the New City Press, always on the lookout for new and creative ways to create a culture of unity and dialogue.
