Could the average churchgoer today speak intelligently on divine will, the sacraments, or the Trinity? Or has the modern, western church largely forgotten its creeds? And does it even matter? A. James Reimer believes that it does matter, and that the church ignores these discussions at its own peril. In these short, accessible essays, Reimer approaches the dogmas of the Christian faith with humor, insight, and imagination. Here basics such as heaven, hell, prayer, and judgment are explained with historical insight and contemporary application-Anabaptist Mennonite priorities but with appreciation for the church's wider historical context and traditions. Reimer refuses to consider these topics either too controversial or too boring. Rather, he imagines exciting encounters with the mysteries of faith that can only come from a dogmatic imagination. 108 Pages.
