Associate Professor of Religion and the Arts Dr. Donovan McAbee recently published a memoir essay in The Christian Century titled “The religious door knockers are back.”
With a mix of playful humor and earnestness, McAbee addresses the phenomenon of door-to-door proselytizers, his own evangelical background and the feelings of loneliness the pandemic has engendered in so many. His essay reflects on the suspicion of strangers and on the breadth, depth and tenacity of God’s love.
“We’re all partial reflections of God’s image. So, I believe we can glean something of God from everyone we encounter,” McAbee explained. “My story tries to do this with humor, earnestness and grace, considering a variety of approaches to the Christian faith.”
