Here’s a post I wrote for Tony Jones featured in Patheos’ Open-Source Theological Conversation, in which ‘Progressive’ bloggers respond to Tony Jones’ challenge to write something- anything- about God.
"Jason Micheli is the bravest motherf@$%^& I’ve ever met. It takes a lot of courage to keep faith with God while you’re saying, “F#$% you cancer, and your little tumor Toto too.”
But not only does he keep faith; it deepens because he becomes a theologian of the only theology that matters—the theology of death and life, you know, the theology of when shit gets real.
Writing with the wit and brutal honesty of Annie Lamott, Micheli takes his readers on a shakedown cruise of pain, suffering, and discovery where we all meet God, perhaps for the first time. Get this book!"
