Could the average churchgoer today speak intelligently on divine will, the sacraments, or the Trinity? Or has the modern, western church largely forgotten its creeds? And does it even matter? A.

Or has the modern, western church largely forgotten its creeds? And does it even matter? A. James Reimer believes that it does matter, and that the church ignores these discussions at its own peril. In these short, accessible essays, Reimer approaches the dogmas of the Christian faith with humor, insight, and imagination. Here basics such as heaven, hell, prayer, and judgment are explained with historical insight and contemporary application-Anabaptist Mennonite priorities but with appreciation for the church's wider historical context and traditions. Reimer refuses to consider these topics either too controversial or too boring. Rather, he imagines exciting encounters with the mysteries of faith that can only come from a dogmatic imagination. 108 Pages.

    This is called a collection of essays, but each chapter is so short, I'd call them almost musings. The chapters are written well, but they usually left me yearning for a bit more. It is ultimately focused on the Mennonite theological experience, so if you were not raised within the environment or born into the culture, you may still feel like an outsider. I know I did at times. And I attend a Mennonite church! Still, it's worth reading, Mennonite or not. This is called a collection of essays, but each chapter is so short, I'd call them almost musings.

    Almost too brief to be of any real value, Reimer lays out a couple dozen Christian doctrines with an eye toward re-imagining them for our contemporary world. However, each doctrine is so quickly dealt with that the reader is not left with much that is memorable about the book.
