Overview

In this incendiary new work, the controversial author and speaker Peter Rollins proclaims that the Christian faith is not primarily concerned with questions regarding life after death but with the possibility of life before death. In order to unearth this truth, Rollins prescribes a radical and wholesale critique of contemporary Christianity that he calls pyro-theology. It is only as we submit our spiritual practices, religious rituals, and dogmatic affirmations to the flames of fearless interrogation that we come into contact with the reality that Christianity is in the business of transforming our world rather than offering a way of interpreting or escaping it. Belief in the Resurrection means but one thing: participation in an insurrection.

Insurrection 4.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.
Peter Shaw More than 1 year ago
I am a fan of Peter Rollins. I was hooked after "How Not To Speak of God." In this book, Rollins takes us beneath the catch-phrases so commonly employed in popular Christianity to discover a more profound beauty and depth found in strange places. Embracing what we think should be avoided really is where resurrection can begin to be experienced now. As a pastor, he leaves me with a challenge to take people to this place. This creates a natural tension in our attraction-oriented methodologies, but this avoided truth must be creatively shared if we are to offer it to a broken world. - Pete Shaw

This is my first Peter Rollins book, and I loved it. Profound and thought provoking, it addresses what it means to live the crucifixion and resurrection in our lives today. Highly recommended!
