Talking the Walk ePub and PDF Available
A little theological dictionary of sorts, after Buechner and Pelikan, but more personal and more tied to particular theological issues of our time.Dawn wants to rectify the names, to clarify our theological thinking to shape our actions. Her writing is not poetry like Buechner, but I like that she follows a moderate and orthodox path dismissing the extremes of religious liberals and conservatives.It is also personal, addressing the concerns she faces in her own ministry and life, which is one of considerable physical suffering (see below).Nice to read in pieces, which I did at the beginning, and in large chunks, which is how I finished the book.The latter course is better or at least made the book feel more continuous and whole.There are three sections: on God, on humanity and our need for God, and finally on the actions of God.

"A suppose we don't want to take Jesus' sufferings more seriously because we are not willing to bear them also.We'd rather not think that affliction and weakness are the way God usually works because we would prefer to be successful and powerful ourselves when we do God's work. Or we don't want to recognize that where Jesus is suffering today is in the lives of women, children, minorities, the poor; and others who are the victims of our sins."

"Some Christians diminish salvation by turning it into merely personal salvation, attainable by our 'choosing' to believe.This attitude is epitomized by the song, 'I've decided to follow Jesus,' which doesn't mention at all that we wouldn't even know who He is without the Holy Spirit's teaching, that we wouldn't have known to follow unless He had called us, and that He wouldn't be incarnate to follow without being begotten of the Father: Somehow the entire triune work of salvation has been expunged by our narcissistic penchant for 'personal choice.'"
