Golden Rule Christianity: Mainstream Religion

Researcher Nancy Ammerman develops the argument that Christians who have more liberal theological views, non-exclusivist convictions about religious truth, and lower levels of participation in church life are a “pervasive religious type that deserves to be understood on its own terms.” Their faith is not a pale reflection of conservative, evangelical fervor. Instead, it is more concerned about right-living than about right-believing. Calling this group “Golden Rule Christians,” Ammerman describes who they are, what they believe, and how they participate in church. Read her article, "Golden Rule Christianity:  Lived Religion in the American Mainstream," reprinted from "Lived Religion in America" edited by David Hall (1997), published by Princeton University Press.
