Speaking of God: An Essential Guide to Christian Thought
Do you ever think you’re forgetting how to talk about God? Or never learned how?
Theology is nothing more—and nothing less—than speaking together about God. Still, a lot of us don’t know where to start.
In Speaking of God, pastor and theologian Anthony Siegrist helps readers recover a basic language around Christian theology. The sweeping epic of Scripture serves as the scaffold for this accessible book. In vivid and even humorous writing, Siegrist introduces us to scholars and pilgrims and traditions that disclose essential truths about God and Jesus Christ, as well as concepts like creation, sin, redemption, the church, and discipleship. By plumbing the works of theologians such as Augustine, Julian of Norwich, Antonia Gonzalez, and Kazoh Kitamori, Siegrist offers readers an introduction to Christian theology throughout the ages, emphasizing common threads of thought and practice across traditions.
Learning to talk about God requires courage and humility; this handbook of Christian theology will help you gain both. Join the deepest, longest conversation in the world.
“Siegrist makes theology come alive. When you finish this book, your mind will be dancing with new words and ideas about faith and God.” - Carol Penner, assistant professor of theological studies at Conrad Grebel University College
