“This book of short pieces invites readers to muse about different aspects of the Christian faith. Created with the conviction that theology is meant for the whole people of God, it collects writings of mine that have appeared in popular journals intended to make insights accessible to a broad reading public. It also includes lectures delivered to students at colleges and universities and before adult audiences in church venues. In bringing these pieces together between two covers, my hope is that they will serve to nourish the minds and hearts of a larger pool of folk than read or heard the original, or at least give the reader something more to think about regarding God’s abounding kindness, something more to question, or argue over, or imagine anew, or even pray with, and then enact.”
