In this incendiary new work, the controversial author and speaker Peter Rollins proclaims that the Christian faith is not primarily concerned with questions regarding life after death but with the possibility of life before death. In order to unearth this truth, Rollins prescribes a radical and wholesale critique of contemporary Christianity that he calls pyro-theology. It is only as we submit our spiritual practices, religious rituals, and dogmatic affirmations to the flames of fearless interrogation that we come into contact with the reality that Christianity is in the business of transforming our world rather than offering a way of interpreting or escaping it. Belief in the Resurrection means but one thing: participation in an insurrection.

This is one of those books, that to properly digest it you have to listen to it again. I have been following Peter for the last 2 years, and this is one of those works that sets to sail a thousand ships of thought.
Applicable and relevant critiques of modern Christianity. Rollins meaningfully challenged my comfort level and gave helpful new trajectories. I am recommending this to all of my other friends who also desire healthy analysis and rupture of comfortable patterns of existence. May God truly rid us of our incorrect and often harmful notions of who God is.
