Recommends it for: People who need to understand how we form Theology.
Recommended to Brad by: Ollie's Bargain House
It is hard to rate this book due to my biases against theologians in general, or at least modern day theologian. Theologian to me means: someone who talks about the Bible a lot and splits hairs and often limits the owe of God. Someone who talks a lot and does little and wants others admire their knowledge...something like that or even someone who is so open minded that she allows anything in the Bible without allowing the Holy Spirit to guide. Now, I know this isn't always the case; but my guard ...more
I was invited to be part of a blog tour reviewing Ed Cyzewski’s new book “Coffeehouse Theology.” For more information about the author and a list of other reviews check out Ed’s blog

I will start out by first saying that Cyzewski’s book doesn’t break any new ground. What this book does is serve as a primer on “doing theology in a postmodern world.” Now, if that particular phrase doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to you, I think it will after you read his book.

Short Review: Coffeehouse Theology: Reflecting on God in Everyday Life by Ed Cyzewski - theology is all around us but theology needs to be enculturated (translated and understood for the particular culture you are in.)

Getting through this book was a little bit of a struggle. All his talk about Modernism and Post-Modernism made me feel like I was back in school. I think the author tried to dumb it down for people who are not well-versed in theology, but it was still dry and hard to grasp if you weren't that interested in the topic. For someone studying theology and interested in it, this may be a great book as it does deal heavily with current culture. The author made some great points, it just wasn't written ...more

Excellent book; got me cogitating. Interesting correlation to #TMHOneChurch sermon series this summer at The Meeting House.

I read this in bits and bites while commuting on subway, but intend to reread it, notebook at hand, checking out references.

Highly recommended.
