About-

Have you ever picked up a volume of theology, read the first page, and decided you would rather scrub the bathroom floor than read another page? Theology does not need to be abstract, dull, boring, tedious, dense, inconsequential, trivial, remote, immaterial, or unimportant. Theology should not leave readers feeling bewildered and lost. Expressing Theology challenges writers of theology to craft engaging, compelling, and beautiful prose that grabs readers' attention and makes reading a pleasure. Expressing Theology provides writers of theology--academics, aspiring, and published--with perspectives and writing techniques to write theology that readers want to read.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"In Expressing Theology, Jonathan Roach and Gricel Dominguez are looking to start a revolution. Their goal is to help us all learn how to write works of theology that are insightful, lively, and engaging. This fun and easy-to-read book gives budding and established theologians down-to-earth advice on how to simplify their writing style and get their ideas on paper."
--Theodore James Whapham, Dean, School of Ministry, University of Dallas

"The authors suggest that words 'light fires, bring down corruption, foster hope, and save lives.' This brilliant book not only offers strategies for excellent theological writing, it inspires the reader to see writing as a critical way of engaging and doing theology. The short reflection questions offer guidance for the seasoned writer as well as the beginner. It is destined to be a classic text for both graduate and undergraduate students of theology."
--Mary Carter Waren, Associate Professor, School of Theology and Ministry, St. Thomas University
