Item description for Coffee Shop Theology: Translating Doctrinal Jargon Into Everyday Life by Frank Moore...

Moore abandons the big words and scholarly jargon for a casual, comfortable discussion of theology---as if you were having coffee with him at the local cafe. Without "dumbing it down," he clearly explains tough doctrinal concepts like providence, the Trinity, systemic evil, and original sin to bring theology into focus for everyday living.

Publishers Description
More than ever before, Christians must know what we believe and why. The reason is simple but serious. In a world where most ways of thinking are considered equally true regardless of how unscriptural they may be or how odd they may sound, if our anchor isn't set in a rock-solid theology, we'll be washed out to sea on the riptide of bogus beliefs. Finally, here is a readable, understandable book that explains theological concepts and brings them into focus for everyday living. In Coffee Shop Theology Dr. Frank Moore covers a wide array of theological concepts and brings them by the 'digestible' handfuls into your living room. Don't be turned off the the word 'theology.' Dr. Moore has left all the big words in the fat books.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about Coffee Shop Theology: Translating Doctrinal Jargon Into Everyday Life?

Casual discussion of Christianity...  Apr 10, 2010
Frank Moore offers a comfortable pace and casual approach to understanding and explaining the Christian faith. Very easy to read and understand, in plain language and a personal interaction. This is must reading for every new Christian who wants the ability to explain their love of Christ to others. Make yourself a pot of coffee and enjoy. Wonderful source material for a small study group, too.
Helpful for a Confident Teacher  Jun 20, 2009
I bought several copies of this book so that the adult Sunday school class I teach could start to use some academic theological terms in our discussions of Biblical texts. I've read the entire book and taught through half of it at this point, and it serves its purpose. Folks looking to buy it should be aware that Moore leans Wesleyan and Conservative, so folks with more radical or Calvinist tendencies (or radical Calvinist tendencies) should come in with more than a tenuous grasp of theological discourse themselves should they wish to use it for teaching.

The topics covered in this volume are standard systematic theological concepts. It begins with doctrines of God and works through doctrines of creation, scripture, Christ, and evil. The conclusion of the book invites the reader to take a look at the second volume, More Coffee Shop Theology: Translating Doctrinal Jargon into Everyday Life, which treats mainly doctrines of salvation.

Moore's claim in the introduction, that he will withhold academic speak, holds throughout. He does introduce some rather hard terms, and in some places I've had to explain his vocabulary, but even so this introduction does remain in a register that is handy for teaching generally educated adults.
