To live out "authentic" Christian lives in today's postmodern world, we must connect the pieces. Stan Grenz contends that theology provides the link, helping us to: (1) differentiate true belief from false teaching, (2) gain a firm grounding in the Christian faith, and (3) apply what the Bible teaches about God and the world to our lives. Each of us is a theologian, just as God intended. Consequently, the question is not "will we be theologians?" but "will we be good theologians?" Created for Community shows us how to be good theologians, how to make good connections in and with everyday life.
