Crazy Talk Summary


Crazy Talk: A Not-so-stuffy Dictionary of Theological Terms by Edited by Rolf A. Jacobson

So much theology is confusing and intimidating. The concepts themselves are given weighty-sounding names, such as incarnation 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 navigate their way through that complexity and offers a vocabulary that dares and equips! its readers to embrace their own faith in a new, well-informed way. The purpose of Crazy Talk, says author Rolf Jacobson, is to render the heart of our Christian theology in a form that is accessible and appealing to everyone. The format of the book is similar to that of a dictionary of theological terms but with a twist of humor! Each entry includes the name of the theological term, an ironic definition of the term, and a short humorous essay offering a fuller explanation of the term. In making the term understandable, Jacobson concentrates on the big theological issue that is at stake in the term and why it matters. Includes over fifty black and white illustrations.

Crazy Talk Reviews


"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 it!" -- Patrick D. Miller "Princeton Theological Seminary"
