9781561012275: The Theological Implications of Climate Control: Reflections on the Seasons of Faith

Every life is marked by moments in which reality seems to fall short of our deepest hopes and we are left with more questions than answers. In these reflections, Brian Erickson witnesses to the hope that such moments of uncertainty can give rise to a dynamic and life-giving faith. Seeking refreshing ways to bring God's story into the chaos and confusion of our everyday lives, Erickson finds that “the amazing and frightening thing about it all is that when we begin to let ourselves be formed simply by the hearing of those words, by the telling of those stories, God's story starts to be told through the events of our own lives. Our days become living scripture.” The Theological Implications of Climate Control offers a new and imaginative voice for seekers and seasoned Christians alike.

About the Author:

Brian Erikson is a United Methodist pastor and college chaplain. A graduate of Birmingham-Southern College and Emory University, Brian lives in Evansville, Indiana with his wife and son, where he serves as a chaplain at the University of Evansville.

Review:

The modern world is dedicated to the illusion of control. But Brian Erickson is dedicated to listening for the voice of the living God, so he knows that our lives are always out of our control. We can't control the climate of our relationship to God. We can only listen. We could have no better help in that task than this talented young writer/theologian. (William H. Willimon, bishop of Birmingham Area United Methodist Church)

This book is based upon the intersection of God's story and our own personal stories. In brilliant writing that teems with freshness and originality, Brian Erickson gives the engagement with scripture a ‘you are there' quality that, again and again, catches a reader by surprise. A remarkable combination of spiritual honesty and vibrant imagination. (Donald G. Shockley, author of Private Prayers in Public Places)

Brian Erickson has written a book that is both comforting and challenging as it guides us in a search for God and for self. It is for seekers, for wrestlers, for those willing to ask their own questions and find answers as they study the scriptures and consider aspects of their everyday lives. Beautifully written and provocative, I will return to it again and again. (Wanda D. Bigham, assistant general secretary for schools, colleges, and universities of The United Methodist Church)
