Ever had a friend who seemed gung-ho for the gospel only to drift away a few years later and eventually leave the faith altogether? What keeps us firmly rooted in the Good News? That’s what Paul addresses in 1 Corinthians 15.
Theological questions surround our lives, whether we are conscious of it or not. For some, the questions are as simple as, “Is there a God?” and “How can I be assured He exists?” For others, the considerations may probe deeper, and center upon conversations such as, “What is God’s true nature?” and “How sovereign is God over my life?” Any dialogue or introspective contemplation about God is, by definition, theology, whether the person is a child or a PHD in philosophy. According to author and college professor Kelly Kapic, “Theology is not reserved for those in the academy, it is an aspect of thought and conversation for all who live and breathe, who wrestle and fear, who hope and pray.” In his book, A Little Book for New Theologians, Kelly Kapic provides a clear, straightforward way to distinguish between the academic study of God’s Word and the assimilation of God’s Word into daily life.
