The Unbinding Series arises out of 16 years of nationally-based, Lilly-Endowment funded research in congregational revitalization & evangelism with churches and people from all over the US, in 10 different denominations. The Series, like Reese herself, urges readers to move toward greater depth of faith and more profound sharing of that faith, from their own starting places. Bottom line: "If we pray, if we ask God to use us, the adventures begin!"

"....with clarity and sound theological grounding, we are invited into a grand adventure....could be a watershed book for mainline Protestantism."

Alban Institute, Congregations

"....the don't ask, don't tell evangelism program will not reverse the trend. Humor, whimsy and joy in the faith will serve us better. Reese's book is written to provoke, to tease and to charm us back into telling our story."

"Don't miss this one!"
