NCLA Review -This reviewer is a non-academic and so approached the subject of the “methodology of theology” with trepidation. Cyzewski builds a method for theology that is rooted in a relationship with God. He writes, "Theology is something that we take with us into our everyday lives—an ongoing process that evolves through an interactive relationship with God, the Bible, the traditions of the church, and the global church." Coffeehouse Theology focuses on Contextual Theology, which, often overlooked, challenges us to look at our local cultural context when studying the Word. It challenges us to acknowledge that we look at the Bible through a certain lens, based on where we live and what our culture dictates. If we truly want to understand the Bible, we need to consider how other cultures and people see it. This is an excellent book for any library.
