Phyllis Tickle has had a significant impact on thereligious landscape in America over her 50-year career. As a college dean, a publishing gadfly, and an advocate of the church’s emergence, she has garnered a loyal following in the tens of thousands. Among those she’s influenced areinfluential church leaders themselves, including Diana Butler-Bass, Brian McLaren, Nadia Bolz-Weber, Peter Rollins, Doug Pagitt, Jon M. Sweeney, Jana Reiss, Lauren F. Winner, and others. In this volume, they reflect of Phyllis’s influence, and on the challenge that Phyllis’s work poses the future church. “This powerful tribute provides a fascinating glimpse into the effect one singular woman of faith has had on how the Body of Christ understands its history, its purpose, and its prayer.” —Nadia Bolz-Weber, pastor of House for All Sinners and Saints and author of Pastrix

“This engaging book fails wondrously at being a boring academic restatement of the ‘Tickle Theology’. Phyllis and her work are inseparable, Both burst on the scene here through talk of poetry andprayer, talismans and tornados, midwives and mysticism.Above all, what pulses through these pages is the unquenchable spirit of Phyllis herself, one of the great prophets of our time. Her spirit and Holy Spirit—a great combination!” —Philip Clayton, Ingraham Professor of Theology at Claremont School of Theology and author of Transforming ChristianTheology

“Phyllis Tickle, as described by her many friends, helps us to be brave and of good courage in unsettled times. This was a book I could not put down.” —The Right Rev. Mariann Edgar Budde, Episcopal Bishop of Washington DC
