A Pilgrim Walks the Plank

In this little book, a kind of contemporary enchiridion, Kim Fabricius engages some of the main themes of Christian theology in prose, poetry, and song (his own hymns). It does not aim to be systematic or comprehensive; rather it goes straight to the main contested areas in the church today, the red-button issues in doctrine, spirituality, culture, ethics, and politics.

Fabricius's imaginative vision and lively conversational style—moving freely between the interrogative and the polemical, the playful and the profound—invite us all to the vertiginous experience of faith. The book's concise format and no-nonsense approach make it a perfect guide for inquiring Christians as well as committed disciples and an ideal discussion-starter for both church groups and college classes. The author's passionate commitment to a self-critical faith is a provocative invitation to religion's cultured despisers to join him—if they dare—on the plank.

“With wit, wisdom, and deceptive learning, Fabricius has written the book we have desperately desired, that is, a book we can give a friend who asks, 'What is all this Christian stuff about?'” — Stanley Hauerwas, Gilbert T. Rowe Professor of Theological Ethics at the Divinity School of Duke University

“Here is an introduction to Christian theology that is provocative and humorous.” — Michael L. Westmoreland White, Levellers
