Ever heard phrases like "the immanence and transcendence of God" or "general and special revelation" and wondered they really meant? Do you have a sense that they are important issues, but are not sure what they mean in everyday life? Dr. Frank Moore's book Coffee Shop Theology will help. He sat down to describe theology in simpler terms so that everyone could understand and apply it in their lives. The result is an easy to read and understand book which will strengthen your faith and increase your confidence.
The book covers such topics as God, God's self- revelation, evil, humanity, sin, and Jesus Christ. Organized topically, with several chapters to each topic, Coffee Shop Theology is a great reference book for questions which might come up in everyday conversation. Not only will you walk away from this book with a better understanding of God, but you will also be able to help others understand God better as well.
Moore's tone is informal, as if you and he were sitting in a coffee shop, just talking about life. So, as Moore invites us in the introduction:
"Let's order a cup of coffee and a soft chocolate chip cookie and get started."
More than ever before, Christians must know what we believe and why. The reason is simple but serious. In a world where most ways of thinking are considered equally true regardless of how unscriptural they may be or how odd they may sound, if our anchor isn’t set in a rock-solid theology, we’ll be washed out to sea on the riptide of bogus beliefs. Finally, here is a readable, understandable book that explains theological concepts and brings them into focus for everyday living. In Coffee Shop Theology Dr. Frank Moore covers a wide array of theological concepts and brings them by the ’digestible’ handfuls into your living room. Don’t be turned off the the word ’theology.’ Dr. Moore has left all the big words in the fat books.
