Theologizin’ Bigger: Homilies on Living Freely and Loving Wholly

Publisher:

Pew Research Polling Suggests That The Number Of Americans Who Identify As Christians Has Been Steadily Declining For The Last Five Decades. The Data Does Not Suggest That Christians Are Leaving For Other Faith Traditions, But That Many Are Now Choosing To Identify As Atheist, Agnostic, Or Nothing In Particular. Many Simply Feel That The Church Is Unnecessary. The Foundation Of An Unnecessary Church Is An Irrelevant Theology. The Solution To The Problem Is To Encourage Curious People To Pursue Theologies That Speak To Their Contexts, Just As People Of Faith Have Done Throughout History. Relevant Theologies Demand That We Change Thought Patterns And Approaches To God Talk. Theologizin’ Bigger Began With A Creative Effort To Do Theology In The Short, Concise Format Of Social Media Posts. It Worked. It Provoked People To Think Outside Of Their Theological Comfort Zones. With Chapters That Begin With An Actual Social Media Post, Pastor Trey Ferguson Offers Essays That Leads People Beyond The Confines Of The Certainty They’ve Taken For Granted. A Chapter On Reexamining How Christians View Marriage Starts With The Text Of An Actual Tweet That Reads: Whole Lotta Biblical Definition Of Marriage Folks Need To Come Up Off That Bride Price Before Speaking Of How The Institution Of Marriage Is More Shaped By Culture Than Biblical Precedent. A Chapter On The Process Of Deconstruction Starts With A Tweet That Says: We Gotta Have A Talk About Deconstruction, Launching A Thread That Talks About Exiting Harmful Evangelical Spaces And Taking Harmful Habits With Us. Readers Will Leave With A Curiosity That Drives Them To Hold Their Traditions Humbly And Seek To Construct And Embrace Theologies That Speak To The World They Have Received And Hope To Leave Behind, As Opposed To The World As It Once Was– Provided By Publisher.
