Walking with Jesus in Strange Places (My Theology Series) 

John Swinton


( Fortress Press )

Theology doesn’t come to us neatly packaged from above. There is a sense in which all theology is autobiography. We learn it as we live it, and the place where we live it out is within our own story. It’s not that there is no such thing as objective truth. It’s just that we come to know what we know not only as we think our way into it with our minds but as we live into it with the whole of our lives. As theologians, our own stories inevitably matter. In this book, John Swinton uses fragments of his own story to show how that story has impacted the way he sees and practices theology. His place of formation walking alongside people living with intellectual disabilities, mental health challenges, and dementia has gifted Swinton with the opportunity to ask different questions of the tradition–questions that emerge from the lives of people who see the world differently. That learning has shaped him as a theologian. It has also raised some crucial questions around the nature of faithfulness, discipleship, and exactly what kind of community the church is and should be in both theory and in practice. As we reflect on these matters, the hope is that all of us together can begin to appreciate more deeply the goodness, kindness, and love of God for all human beings.

In the My Theology series, the world’s leading Christian thinkers explain some of the principal tenets of their theological beliefs in concise, pocket-sized books.

An Evolving God, An Evolving Purpose, An Evolving World (My Theology Series)

John Chittister

( Fortress Press )

The God that we were brought up on is not big enough to be God. To be both religious and spiritual, modernity must be able to absorb the notion of a cosmic and evolving God. This notion redefines the place and purpose of humanity itself. The old notions of who is in charge, who is superior and whose theology is paramount is in a state of flux. Unless, or until, this new vision comes into play, directs our hearts, guides our business, underlies our technology, the world itself is not ready to understand or survive the horizon of Newness on which it stands.

In the My Theology series, the world’s leading Christian thinkers explain some of the principal tenets of their theological beliefs in concise, pocket-sized books.
