About the Author

David J. Lose holds the Marbury E. Anderson Chair in Biblical Preaching at Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota, where he has also served as Academic Dean. He is the author of Confessing Jesus Christ: Preaching in a Postmodern World.

More About the Author

David Lose is the Director of the Center for Biblical Preaching at Luther Seminary where he also teaches with amazing students and colleagues and, once upon a time, served as Academic Dean. Author of the popular Making Sense Series, David speaks throughout the US and abroad on preaching, leadership, Christian faith in a postmodern world, and biblical interpretation. But his favorite thing to do is hang out with his family in Kennett Square, PA, where he can play tennis, root for the Eagles, or get wrapped up in a game of Settlers of Catan with his kids.

Format: Paperback
One reviewer did not like the format so gave this book a poor rating. In checking into who Brian Sniffen is, I learned that he is a brilliant MIT engineer and computer expert, so certainly has a good mind. He may be right that this is not the right book for a very concrete, sequential reader with the mind of a computer geek.

HOWEVER, I find this fairly simple format an excellent way to present this material to one who may not have that level of formal education. It is conversational and works especially well as a small group, class, or discussion.

Further, David Lose is widely known for his clear, honest, and sensitive way of presenting deep spiritual truths.

So this just might be the right book for you or your group. I recommend it.

David Lose continues with the conversation style he used to excellent effect in Making Sense of Scripture.
At first, like a previous reviewer, I found this construct to be a bit contrived. However, it becomes an excellent way to engage in a conversation with Lose about Christian theology.
I taught a course using Making Sense of Scripture, and, am now teaching this book.
We are enjoying the book immensely, and find Lose's insights to be provocative and illuminating.
This tends to be aimed at Lutherans - surely mainline Christians. I have recommended these "Making Sense" books to colleagues to consider for adult classes.
There are some wonderful insights in what David has to say.

The format of this course makes its study available for different kind of learners. Dr. Lose's teaching style does the same. The people (20 or so) who participated became engaged because of accessibility, but also because they began to accept permission to voice the questions of their hearts and minds. As people became more comfortable with each other, there were lively discussions, and much thought, which is the engagement I longed for and they got into.

Since studying this book, we have studied another and will being Lose's Making Sense of Scripture next week.
Oh, another cool thing: 7 of the 15 people signed for this course, bought it for their Kindle! Yea, Kindle!

We really liked the format of the book, two people talking about their faith. We found this to answer some of our questions and enabled us to have a more in depth conversation on the issues.
