In this latest installment of the Homebrewed Christianity series, Eric E. Hall approaches the question of God from various perspectives. The classical conception of God is like the famously stoic-yet-lethal Mr. Miyagi in the Karate Kid. Competing versions of God include Your Hippie Aunt, St. Joan of Arc, and even the muscle-headed goons from Jersey Shore. At the end of this romp through history and pop culture, Hall argues that the God you need may be the very God you rejected years ago.
People still believe that Jesus is returning to earth . . . and soon! Just like the first followers of Jesus, millions of Christians hold fast to the idea that they are living in the last days, yet here we are, two thousand years later, still waiting. In The Homebrewed Christianity Guide to the End Times Jeffrey C. Pugh recounts his own brief sojourn in an apocalyptic cult. He goes on to show where the current church has gone wrong, and he explains how to fix it.
In Jesus' Abba, one of the greatest theologians of this generation boldly argues for a new view of God, through the eyes of Jesus. John B. Cobb Jr. interprets the whole of Jesus' life and ministry, death and resurrection, in light of Jesus' understanding of God. Ultimately, Cobb argues that Jesus' view of God fits our actual experience today. With this book, John B. Cobb Jr. makes his ultimate and most impassioned plea for use to rediscover God, through Jesus.
John D. Caputo has a long career as one of the preeminent postmodern philosophers in America. The author of such books as Radical Hermeneutics, The Prayers and Tears of Jacques Derrida, and The Weakness of God, Caputo now reflects on his spiritual journey from a Catholic altar boy in 1950s Philadelphia to a philosopher after the death of God. Part spiritual autobiography, part homily on what he calls the ?nihilism of grace,? Hoping Against Hope calls believers and nonbelievers alike to participate in the ?praxis of the kingdom of God,? which Caputo says we must pursue ?without why.?
