Propositions on Christian Theology: A Pilgrim Walks the Plank

Availability: Ready to download

In this little book, a kind of contemporary enchiridion, Kim Fabricius engages some of the main themes of Christian theology in prose, poetry, and song (his own hymns). It does not aim to be systematic or comprehensive; rather it goes straight to the main contested areas in the church today, the red-button issues in doctrine, spirituality, culture, ethics, and politics. Fa In this little book, a kind of contemporary enchiridion, Kim Fabricius engages some of the main themes of Christian theology in prose, poetry, and song (his own hymns). It does not aim to be systematic or comprehensive; rather it goes straight to the main contested areas in the church today, the red-button issues in doctrine, spirituality, culture, ethics, and politics. Fabricius's imaginative vision and lively conversational style—moving freely between the interrogative and the polemical, the playful and the profound—invite us all to the vertiginous experience of faith. The book's concise format and no-nonsense approach make it a perfect guide for inquiring Christians as well as committed disciples and an ideal discussion-starter for both church groups and college classes. The author's passionate commitment to a self-critical faith is a provocative invitation to religion's cultured despisers to join him—if they dare—on the plank.

    I've read a good deal of Fabricius online: he often writes a blog post full of single satirical paragraphs mostly on the subject of churches, and theology, and Christianity. Occasionally you'll find a full sermon from him, though he's now retired as a minister. Typically, then, Propositions is full of short paragraphs. It's divided up into various topics, each consisting of ten statements. As an approach it has its limitations, though mostly Fabricius overcomes that. Nevertheless the wit is as s I've read a good deal of Fabricius online: he often writes a blog post full of single satirical paragraphs mostly on the subject of churches, and theology, and Christianity.

Nevertheless the wit is as strong as ever, the good sense equally so. It's a good book to dip in and out of, because of its format, and one that's worth coming back to over and again.
