Overview

Crazy Talk: A Not-So-Stuffy Dictionary of Theological Terms by Rolf A. Jacobson

"Theology does not often produce a mix of humor and profundity. In Crazy Talk all three come together. You will break up laughing and just as often find yourself with new insights into familiar topics. Whoever heard of a dictionary you can't put down? Well here it is!" Patrick D. Miller Princeton Theological Seminary

"Crazy Talk reads like Frederick Buechner on steroids, like theorlogy al fresco, like the friend who understands you perfectly, who puts into words what you know but you wish you could say. Jacobson missed the memo that faith is for fuddy-duddies." Kenda Creasy Dean, Associate Professor of Youth, Church and Culture Princeton Theological Seminary

Ever listened to two theologians? If so, we hope the damage wasn't permanent. If not, thank God.From the Introduction

So much of theology is confusing and intimidating. The concepts themselves are given weighty-sounding names, such as incarnatioon and justification, and the explanations of the concepts sometimes can be more confusing than the names.

Captivating, entertaining, and highly informative, Crazy Talk helps readers to navigate their way through that complexity and offers a vocabulary that dares�and equips!�its readers to embrace their faith in a new, well-informed way.
