Theological firebrand Peter Rollins boldly asserts that Christianity is the religion of doubt.
Through a skillful blend of parables, theology, and anecdotes, Peter Rollins offers a radical thesis: that Christianity, from its very inception, has been a protest against religion. Far from being a faith that celebrates knowledge, dogma, and certainty, Insurrection develops the concept that participation in the death of Christ involves participation in Christs experience of abandonment.
Building on the foundation that popular emergent church leaders have laid, Insurrection explores the explosive question of whether Christianity can exist in a religionless manner. Yet Rollins does not stop there—he goes on to show that doubt, complexity, and ambiguity are necessary elements of a mature and healthy faith. Authentic faith does not exist in traditional mandates but in a life lived for others.
Whether readers are devout believers or seekers, Insurrection shows that when we lay down our certainties and honestly admit our doubts, we most identify with Jesus as he cried out, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" It is only then that we truly open ourselves to experience a transformed life.
Peter Rollins is a widely sought after writer, lecturer, storyteller, and public speaker. He is the founder of Ikon, a Belfast, Northern Ireland, faith group that has gained an international reputation for blending live music, visual imagery, soundscapes, theater, ritual, and reflection. He currently resides in Greenwich, Connecticut.
"What does it mean when the Son of God cries out, 'My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?' Brilliantly, candidly, and faithfully, Rollins wrestles here with that question. You may not agree with his answers and conclusions, but you owe it to yourself and to the church at large to read what he says."
"Peter Rollins is the Anti-Christ for all fake Christians."
