Overview

The Homebrewed Christianity Guide to Being Human: Becoming the Best Bag of Bones You Can Be by Donna Bowman

This Homebrewed Christianity Guide explores how Christian theology can address our rapidly changing paradigms of human existence. Donna Bowman argues that theology can contribute to our knowledge of the human self as gained through the sciences, that a theological perspective on humanity is useful in contemporary pluralistic and global settings, and that there's theological significance to work and play. She also tackles issues of gender, sexuality, creativity, and human expression--with jokes!

It's no longer possible to assign definitive meaning to categories like man and woman, self and society, freedom and determinism, reason and feeling, soul and body by reference to systems of narrative (including biblical narrative) and interpretation in which those ideas are taken for granted. The theology of human personhood begins with irreducible experiences both universal and particular and searches for functional understandings from the whole range of Christian and non-Christian ways of knowing. Plus, jokes!

What People are Saying About This

bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Olympia - Gregory H. Rickel

"Too often the church is answering questions no one is asking. This book answers questions people are asking. It is relevant, welcoming, and enjoyable!"

Hendrix College - Jay McDaniel

"This book is written for many audiences, young and old and in-between; scholarly and non-scholarly, Christians and Nones. If there's a study group at the local pub, they'll come if this book is the option."
