Jason Micheli, a young father, husband, and pastor, was diagnosed with a bone cancer so rare and deadly that his doctors didn’t classify it with one of the normal four stages—they simply called it “stage-serious.” But Micheli wasn’t going to let the cancer kill his spirit, his faith, or his sense of humor. He knew that the promise of faith makes hope possible. And approaching cancer as fodder for some bowel-busting humor helps, too. This is a funny, no-holds-barred, irreverent-yet-faithful take on a disease that has touched every family.

Belief in the doctrine of Original Sin is firmly held by many Christians, but it turns out that it’s not necessarily biblical. Further, argues Danielle Shroyer, it’s bad for people and bad for the church. In Original Blessing, Shroyer shows not only how we got it wrong, but how we can put sin back in its rightful place: in a broader context of redemption and the blessing of humanity’s creation in the image of God.

There is a lurking Neo-Platonism in Christian thinking today. It assumes that there is a gaping hole between our inner and our outer selves and that the soul is to be seen as "good" while the body is "bad." 

Gooder here explores six key concepts, especially from the writings of Paul, before exploring their implications for how we think and speak about our spirituality today.

In this latest installment of the Homebrewed Christianity series, Eric E. Hall approaches the question of God from various perspectives. The classical conception of God is like the famously stoic-yet-lethal Mr. Miyagi in the Karate Kid. Competing versions of God include Your Hippie Aunt, St. Joan of Arc, and even the muscle-headed goons from Jersey Shore. At the end of this romp through history and pop culture, Hall argues that the God you need may be the very God you rejected years ago.
