Item description for Unmuzzling the Dogma: Escaping Some Verbal Roadblocks to Christian Faith by Thomas B. Peake Jr....
When I was in seminary, one of the professors said, "Always make your messages understandable to the people in the pews; but, once a year, preach a message that is 'over their heads' just to show them that you can." Somehow, I was never able to give a message "over their heads." As a result, I concentrated on the "make it understandable" part. The essays and sermon adap-tations that follow are a part of my attempts to make things a little more understandable. Hence, my efforts at "unmuzzling the dogma". Thomas B. Peake, Jr. is a retired Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) minister. He has pastored churches in the Midwest, Southwest, and the West Coast. During the Korean War, he served as an Air Force Chaplain. A native of Missouri, he has science and education degrees from the University of Missouri, and a Master's degree from Phillips Theological Seminary. Since his retirement in 1985, he has served as interim pastor of 15 congregations in 5 states. He has published a number of articles in religious journals.
