Heavenly Participation by Hans Boersma

I went into this book with very high hopes. I think that the sacraments, especially the Eucharist, and liturgy are vastly overlooked for theological reflection. Boersma, I hoped, would do them justice. He did not.

I'm not actually sure what Boersma w...more

God, Sexuality, and the Self by Sarah Coakley
" This creative thesis is well argued, but also a bit of a truism. Honestly, I don't know how to feel about it until I see volume two. It's like she's building to something. I just don't know what yet. Worth reading. "

Dave Eggers
“You invite things to happen. You open the door. You inhale. And if you inhale the chaos, you give the chaos, the chaos gives back.”
Dave Eggers, You Shall Know Our Velocity!

C.S. Lewis
“I believe that many who find that "nothing happens" when they sit down, or kneel down, to a book of devotion, would find that the heart sings unbidden while they are working their way through a tough bit of theology with a pipe in their teeth and a pencil in their hand.”
C.S. Lewis, On the Incarnation

Dietrich Bonhoeffer
“I'm still discovering, right up to this moment, that it is only by living completely in this world that one learns to have faith. I mean living unreservedly in life's duties, problems, successes and failures, experiences and perplexities. In so doing, we throw ourselves completely into the arms of God.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Martin Luther
“This is the reason why our Theology is certain: because it seizes us from ourselves and places us outside ourselves.”
Martin Luther

Jonathan Safran Foer
“I hope that one day you will have the experience of doing something you do not understand for someone you love.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
