About-

Barefoot Theology is a paradigm-shaking invitation for readers to engage with the language of faith. Not your typical theological dictionary, this book explores Christian faith with imagination and passion. You will not find obtuse, prosaic definitions. Instead you will discover creative, poetic imagery that will accompany you as you wrestle with your own faith seeking understanding.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Preparing for a sermon can be a daunting task. Biblical commentaries give great insight into the theology of the text. However, the preacher always needs a way to ease into the Word in innovative ways. Rachael Keefe offers this innovation with her collection of theological poetry. Through it, the preacher can dance with the Word as the words of the poems bring to life each theological concept. Keefe's book should be on the shelf of every preacher."
--J. Manny Santiago, University Baptist Church, Seattle, Washington

"I can walk through Barefoot Theology rapidly to get a feel of the ground covered, then slowly to experience its textures and to return repeatedly to the beginning of the pilgrimage. Dr. Keefe's pastoral heart and theological mind unite as she invites us to reverent, rejoicing, realistic reliance on the God who guides and loves us all the way to the heart of life-giving love."
--Walter H. Wagner, Moravian Theological Seminary, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
