Description

The Bible can be hard to understand. To many of us, it often does seem like a crazy book. But, according to the authors of Crazy Book, the crazy book we call the Bible actually teaches us the sanity that we need. The sanity that lets us know who God is, who we are in light of God's love, and where God's love can be found and experienced.

Very similar in tone and organization to Crazy Talk, the authors of Crazy Book unleash their passion, faith, and humor. This time they have their sights on the Bible and biblical terms, and they don't hold back. Here, they've elected to focus on major people, events, places, books, and types of literature in the Bible communicating the life-giving truth of the Bible via often knock-em-dead humor. The volume's savvy and sassy overtones are bound to leave an impression. An accessible book almost devoid of scholarly jargon but filled with scholarly insight.

The revised and expanded addition includes new and expanded entries and all new images.

When theology is not amused, it may become cold and eventually debilitating and paralyzing. Rolf, Karl, and Hans will have none of that.

Theology echoes the verdict of Queen Victoria, 'We are not amused.' When theology is not amused, it may become cold and eventually debilitating and paralyzing. Rolf, Karl, and Hans will have none of that. They have the capacity to be amused as they ponder serious matters. And you, dear reader, will be amused in ways that invite, engage, and summon. The laugh offered here echoes the great 'Easter Laugh.'

Walter Brueggemann | Columbia Theological Seminary, author of "The Prophetic Imagination"

 I guarantee you won't read the Bible in the same way after reading Crazy Book.

Don't be misled by the leather binding; the Bible is a wild and crazy book! I guarantee you won't read it in the same way after reading Crazy Book. This trio of authors offers great wisdom and fun in this crazy book about a book that is not only crazy but wonderfully true!
