Item Description...
Overview
Can members of our churches today speak intelligently on divine will, the sacraments, or the Trinity? Or has the modern and post-modern church largely forgotten its creeds? And does it even matter? Theologian A. James Reimer believes that it does matter, and that the church ignores these discussions at its own peril. In these short, engaging essays, Reimer approaches the dogmas of the Christian faith with humor, insight, and imagination. Here basics such as heaven, hell, prayer, and judgment are explained with historical insight and contemporary application. Anabaptist Mennonite priorities emerge but with appreciation for the church's wider historical context and traditions. Reimer refuses to consider these topics too controversial or too boring. Rather, he imagines exciting encounters with the mysteries of faith.

Publishers Description
Could the average churchgoer today speak intelligently on divine will, the sacraments, or the Trinity? Or has the modern, western church largely forgotten its creeds? And does it even matter? A. James Reimer believes that it does matter, and that the church ignores these discussions at its own peril. In these short, accessible essays, Reimer approaches the dogmas of the Christian faith with humor, insight, and imagination. Here basics such as heaven, hell, prayer, and judgment are explained with historical insight and contemporary application-Anabaptist Mennonite priorities but with appreciation for the church's wider historical context and traditions. Reimer refuses to consider these topics either too controversial or too boring. Rather, he imagines exciting encounters with the mysteries of faith that can only come from a dogmatic imagination. 108 Pages.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An interesting effort.   Oct 21, 2005
The Dogmatic Imagination is a short book intended to be an aid to catechesis for young people. In 24 short essays Reimer introduces a host of subjects that cover the key doctrines of Christianity (as Reimer understands them). To his credit Reimer does not actually attempt to teach what is to be believed but rather his essays can be seens as a case of setting the boundaries and then aencouraging his readers free range (hence the title The Dogmatic Imagination).

The book is hard to review because i know from secondary literature Reimer's basic theological approach and it is not one i am happy with but it is hardly fair to judge this approach on this effort (his approach is outlined in Mennonites and Classical Theology - if I had the money I'd read it but alas i am poor)! Nontheless it is an interesting book and I would imagine would certainly would set new entrants to theological reflection on a good setting.
