"When we speak bad theology, we live badly theologically." In seventy-two pithy, very personal essays, Marva Dawn provides ample proof for that assertion. The latest offering from this theologian and teacher targets the contemporary bent towards the corruption of words and their meanings. But not just any words. Rather, the essential words of traditional Christianity, words that are so key to the Christian faith that "churches (and individual Christians) cannot flourish if the names are corrupted."
Susan Disston is a freelance writer and the assessment director and an adjunct faculty member in practical theology at Biblical Seminary in Hatfield, Pennsylvania. She previously served the PCA as a regional trainer for Christian Education & Publications.
