It is no longer possible to assign definitive meaning to categories like man and woman, self and society, freedom and determinism, reason and feeling, soul and body, by reference to systems of narrative (including biblical narrative) and interpretation in which those ideas are taken for granted. The theology of human personhood begins with irreducible experiences both universal and particular, and searches for functional understandings from the whole range of Christian and non-Christian ways of knowing, all of which this Homebrewed Christianity Guide will uncover.

About the books
Identifying a dead homeless Jew as the Son of the living God is absurd. It is. Let’s own it.
"If your Christology isn’t weird, you’re doing it wrong. The church’s theological confessions about Christ are not suddenly embarrassing; they always have been. Join the parade! It’s not like it takes a pluralistic culture informed by science to realize that identifying a dead homeless Jew as the Son of the living God is absurd. It is. Let’s own it. But instead of just regurgitating it without reflection and throwing it at our befuddled neighbors as a trilemma with eternal consequences, let’s let the weirdness seep into our own imaginations."

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.

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.
People still believe that Jesus is returning to earth . . . and soon! Just like the first followers of Jesus, millions of Christians hold fast to the idea that they are living in the last days, yet here we are, two thousand years later, still waiting. In The Homebrewed Christianity Guide to the End Times Jeffrey C. Pugh recounts his own brief sojourn in an apocalyptic cult. He goes on to show where the current church has gone wrong, and he explains how to fix it.
Recognizing that the battle over Jesus is no longer a public debate between the skeptic and believer but an internal struggle in the heart of many disciples, Tripp Fuller argues that we continue to make christological claims about more than an “event” or simply the “Jesus of history.”
