I went to the site but couldn't really find anything. I did see a list of sermons that look interesting. I plan to bookmark it and read them from time to time.

I didn't know Dr. Cox personally but when I ran into his book it was outstanding. Much like McClaren or Rob Bell, everything Dr. Cox said was what I needed to hear. I come from a very fundamental and legalistic background and Dr. Cox spoke to me in his sermons at ucchurch.org and in his book, Think Again: A Response to Fundamentalism's Claim on Christianity. Dr. Cox's approach is and was radically inclusive insisting that no single stream of thought can lay exclusive claim to the Christian faith.

 

A couple of quotes out of the book that I enjoyed were: "The Church is like a swimming pool, with all of the noise coming from the shallow end. Dr. Cox as well as this site allows many of us to try to move out to the deep end. Dr. Cox said that he entered the ministry not for the purpose of "saving souls" but to point people toward a relationship with God, because he believed the soul of a person who honestly seeks a relationship with God is in good hands.
