Availability: Ready to download

Discover a daring collection of Facebook posts that looks at the Christian faith outside the framework of the sacrificial logic of a violent God. Witty, provocative and hopeful, What the Facebook? is a different kind of theology with a wonderful new perspective about the character of the one Jesus called, “Abba.” Michael Hardin's sequel to The Jesus Driven Life delves deep Discover a daring collection of Facebook posts that looks at the Christian faith outside the framework of the sacrificial logic of a violent God. Witty, provocative and hopeful, What the Facebook? is a different kind of theology with a wonderful new perspective about the character of the one Jesus called, “Abba.” Michael Hardin's sequel to The Jesus Driven Life delves deeply into problems of God’s image and the Church’s image that plague Protestant Christianity. He offers challenging and incisive critiques, and charts exciting ways that Protestants, and other Christians, can learn to follow Jesus in the 21st century. “In What the Facebook? Hardin has completely rewritten the rules of the game, transforming his Facebook account from a social network into a theological salon par excellence that not even Mark Zuckerberg could have anticipated.” ~ Kevin Miller “Michael Hardin is one of our most important theologians today. Read What the Facebook? and discover how this great teacher is using social media to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ like never before.” ~ Adam Ericksen “Sometimes funny, sometimes furious, and always compelling, What the Facebook? is serious theology engaging American mass culture—Michael Hardin is one of my favorite thinkers.” ~ Brian Zahnd “What the Facebook? is an invaluable resource for the lay theologian wanting to seriously explore leading edge theological thinking with a master. Once you’ve completed this book, you’ll want to keep it handy for ready reference.” ~ Steve Hansen “By far one of the most compelling voices in Christian theology today, Michael Hardin’s What the Facebook? is a must read for anyone who desires to think outside of their tired theological box and delve more deeply into the riches of the Gospel of Jesus.” ~ Brandan Robertson “Few theologians are willing to engage with people on Facebook. It is a brave thing to do! Michael's posts have helped many to rethink their concepts of God, man, atonement, violence and the satan. Whether you agree or not, these posts will be highly informative.” ~ Andre Rabe

    A book that's a bunch of Facebook posts tacked together? Why in Hades would anyone want to buy a book like that when they could just load the Facebook pages up in their web browser? Well, for one, from a pragmatic standpoint, the task of searching for content on Facebook (at least my experience) is a painful one, and often unfruitful, as I believe Facebook overlords encourage new posting as opposed to finding existing content. So having them bundled in a nice coherent stream is a big plus. In thes A book that's a bunch of Facebook posts tacked together? Why in Hades would anyone want to buy a book like that when they could just load the Facebook pages up in their web browser? Well, for one, from a pragmatic standpoint, the task of searching for content on Facebook (at least my experience) is a painful one, and often unfruitful, as I believe Facebook overlords encourage new posting as opposed to finding existing content. So having them bundled in a nice coherent stream is a big plus. In these Facebook posts, Michael Hardin riffs on theology, from a peaceable kingdom perspective with dollops of digestible mimetic theory. A lot of the content, in subject matter, mirrors that of his more formal & structured treatment in *The Jesus Driven Life* (a book you should also go read, if you have not already). But it's in conversational format, in more of Socratic dialogue -- you don't see the comments but the author fields questions and a good bit of the text is framed in Q&A style where the author tackles questions. There is also a bit of lamenting over myopia & #americolatry (my wording here) of the American evangelical church, which often seems to display behavior more in line with sacrificial religion than the way of Jesus.
