"God has develop into one in every of Time magazine's favourite disguise boys and spirituality has turn into a way accessory," writes Barry Taylor. leisure Theology exhorts Christians to include new cars to speak gospel truth--or face extinction."In the arms of a musician, poet, and artist, theology isn't brought prepackaged and classified yet is, fairly, God-talk that's artistic and evocative. Barry Taylor leads us out of our stories and our pews to do our theology on the street, based on the media bombardment and the various voices and photographs round us. nice leisure stimulates our mind's eye and invitations our participation, and Taylor does either. leisure Theology isn't the final observe, yet a piece in progress."--Eddie Gibbs, Fuller Theological Seminary"Barry Taylor has a striking skill to assemble views on modern tradition that different commentators frequently omit.

It publicizes the top of the drained, previous global the place those conversations have been regarded as past the faded and demanding situations us to determine the postmodern international (on the best way and already right here) as an ever-emerging chance for redemptive and redeeming reassessment. Intensely recommended."--David darkish, writer, daily Apocalypse
