How to Speak of God (Not)

Peter Rollins

$31.99

Paperback
Also Available In
With sensitivity to the Christian tradition and a rich understanding of postmodern thought, Peter Rollins argues that the movement known as the "emerging church" offers a singular, unprecedented message of transformation that has the potential to revolutionize the theological and moral architecture of Western Christianity.

How (not) to Speak of Godsets out to explore the theory and praxis of this contemporary expression of faith. Rollins offers a clear exploration of this embryonic movement and provides key resources for those involved in communities that are conversant with, and seeking to minister effectively to, the needs of a postmodern world.

 

"Here in pregnant bud is the rose, the emerging new configuration, of a Christianity that is neither Roman nor Protestant, neither Eastern nor monastic; but rather is the re-formation of all of them. Here, in pregnant bud, is third-millennium Christendom." -Phyllis Tickle

 

"I am a raving fan of the book you are holding. I loved reading it. I have already begun widely recommending it. Reading it did good for my mind and for my soul. It helped me understand my own spiritual journey more clearly, and it gave me a sense of context for the work I'm involved in. In fact, I would say this is one of the two or three most rewarding books of theology I have read in ten years." -Brian McLaren, from the Foreword

Potentially life and faith changing
5 stars By Mal Green, Jul 25 2007
This book is at once profound, challenging, encouraging, enlightening, thoughtful and quietly revolutionary. Coming from a professor of philosophy with a background in charismatic evangelicalism, it appeals to the mind and spirit as it unpacks how we connect with God and how we help people around us connect with God. It finishes with some real-life examples of how a group of people in Dublin corporately connect with God using the ideas from this book. A book that prods us into connecting with God more authentically and meaningfully. A book that motivates us to share our connection with God with those who are not yet connected through Jesus.
