from Crazy Talk: A Not-So-Stuffy Dictionary of Theological Terms, Rolf A. Jacobson, Editor
A dictionary of theological concepts that can make you laugh out loud while turning on light bulbs in your brain? That's crazy! Isn't theology supposed to be dry and tedious? Not in the hands of Jacobson and five other theologians, who have transformed this topic into a page-turner.
Crazy Talk renders Christian theology in a form that is accessible and appealing to everyone. By revealing the truth through humor, Rolf Jacobson, et al., dareand equip!their readers to embrace their faith and to talk about it in an articulate and confident manner.
Captivating, entertaining, and highly informative, Crazy Talk helps readers navigate their way through that complexity and offers a vocabulary that dares---and equips!---its readers to embrace their own faith in a new, well-informed way.
The purpose of Crazy Talk, says author Rolf Jacobson, is to render the heart of our Christian theology in a form that is accessible and appealing to everyone. The format of the book is similar to that of a dictionary of theological terms---but with a twist of humor! Each entry includes the name of the theological term, an ironic definition of the term, and a short humorous essay offering a fuller explanation of the term. In making the term understandable, Jacobson concentrates on the big theological issue that is at stake in the term---and why it matters. Includes over fifty black and white illustrations.
David Baer5 Stars Out Of 5April 14, 2008David Baer"Crazy Talk" is a humorous devotional "dictionary" of theological terms.Rolf Jacobson has put together a little book organized around the big and not-so-big words Christians use when talking about God. He calls theology "Crazy Talk."Each entry starts with a tongue-in-cheek definition of the term and then a short humorous -- but accurate -- discussion of the term and why it matters to Christians.The words considered by "Crazy Talk" range from the familiar -- Angel, Bible . . . Worship -- to more technical theology -- Adoptionism, Canon . . . Theodicy.The authors are Lutheran and reflect that perspective. (They even define some Lutheran theological words like "adiaphora" -- a word and perspective worth knowing!) But all Christians, regardless of their denominational tradition, will enjoy this book and benefit from its content.You could read the book like a devotional -- a word a day. But chances are you won't be able to stop with just one word. Once I picked it up I couldn't put it down.
