Jason Micheli, a young father, husband, and pastor, was diagnosed with a bone cancer so rare and deadly that his doctors didn’t classify it with one of the normal four stages—they simply called it “stage-serious.” But Micheli wasn’t going to let the cancer kill his spirit, his faith, or his sense of humor. He knew that the promise of faith makes hope possible. And approaching cancer as fodder for some bowel-busting humor helps, too. This is a funny, no-holds-barred, irreverent-yet-faithful take on a disease that has touched every family.

Veteran minister and social justice advocate Donna Schaper has become a fan of the pope, and she has written him a series of letters—love letters, of a sort. She agrees with him on the environment, climate change, love of animals, and concern for the poor. But she has a lovers’ quarrel with him on the issues of women’s ordination and LGBT rights. Her letters are intimate and ornery, affirming and challenging. Pastor Donna loves Pope Francis, and she calls us all to join him in loving the world.

Belief in the doctrine of Original Sin is firmly held by many Christians, but it turns out that it’s not necessarily biblical. Further, argues Danielle Shroyer, it’s bad for people and bad for the church. In Original Blessing, Shroyer shows not only how we got it wrong, but how we can put sin back in its rightful place: in a broader context of redemption and the blessing of humanity’s creation in the image of God.

In this latest installment of the Homebrewed Christianity series, Eric E. Hall approaches the question of God from various perspectives. The classical conception of God is like the famously stoic-yet-lethal Mr. Miyagi in the Karate Kid. Competing versions of God include Your Hippie Aunt, St. Joan of Arc, and even the muscle-headed goons from Jersey Shore. At the end of this romp through history and pop culture, Hall argues that the God you need may be the very God you rejected years ago.

Brian Bantum says that race is not merely an intellectual category or a biological fact. It is a deeply theological problem, one that is central to the Christian story and that plays out daily in the United States and throughout the world. Our attempts to heal racism will not succeed unless we address a fallen understanding of our bodies. He examines the question of race, but through the lens of our bodies and what our bodies mean in the midst of a racialized world that perpetually dehumanizes dark bodies.

People still believe that Jesus is returning to earth . . . and soon! Just like the first followers of Jesus, millions of Christians hold fast to the idea that they are living in the last days, yet here we are, two thousand years later, still waiting. In The Homebrewed Christianity Guide to the End Times Jeffrey C. Pugh recounts his own brief sojourn in an apocalyptic cult. He goes on to show where the current church has gone wrong, and he explains how to fix it.
