WATERSHED: A voice in the wilderness. DARYL UNDERWOOD.

 

The concept of Centerpoint Christianity briefly stated is:

Christianity from the centerpoint outward.

Christianity from the climax forward.

This blog constitutes concepts for a new view of Christianity that begins with what is foundational and moves forward from that point. It is based on the assumption that we are being pulled towards something unseen and pushed from a place that once was.

What Centerpoint Christianity attempts to do is bypass some of the constraints imposed by metanarratives by using the life of Christ and particularly the climactic actions of Christ as beginning points.

It supports the conviction that God is essentially timeless. From this beginning point we endeavor to move outward from the definitive moment of the parousia (visitation) of Christ and forward to the future which functions as a type of magnet to "what can be--and is coming".

When we begin at the life of Christ and move outward as from the centerpoint of a web, rather than in a linear timeline of history, another wide picture emerges.

the book

At long last it is nearly here. The book I thought I would finish years ago is almost complete. Well semi-complete. You see what you hold in your hands is a rough version of what might be and at the same time you hold what is--from one heart, a bit too pure, maybe a wee to honest. Raw. It hasn't been edited. It is a bit rough and edgy.

My friend Drew Nelson is a musician. He crafted an album that he held close to his vest. He only shared the original unmastered version with a few. It was his treasure. After some considerable time it was finally mastered and delivered. It was finished. Sort of. If he should sign a deal it will be tinkered with yet again.

But I treasure this first edition. There is so much heart in that initial risk. Truly blood, sweat, and tears went into that project--his and his wife Nicole's. It is really raw and wonderful. I commend 'Dusty Road to Beulah Land' to you highly.

It is a treasure because it is unstained and faulty. That's good and that's, well not so good, it depends on how you look at it. To me it is a delight.

I hope that is your experience as you read this book.
