Abstract

262 Book Reviews / Journal of Reformed Theology 4 (2010) 241-265 Kevin J. Vanhoozer, Charles A. Anderson & Michael J. Sleasman (eds.), Everyday Theology: How to Read Cultural Texts and Interpret Trends ( Cultural Exegesis Series), Baker Academic, Grand Rapids 2007, 280 pp., $23.99 (ISBN 9780801031670). The label ‘everyday theology’ has a promising ring to it. The very name spells out an inten- tion which sounds both contemporary and marketable. So often theology can be dismissed as being remote, not practical and the preserve of an academic elite.

This anthology collated by Kevin Vanhoozer, Charles Anderson and Michael Sleasman assumes that “everyday theology is the reflective and practical task of living each day as faithful disciples of Jesus Christ”; it is concerned not merely with beliefs but with “designs for living.” The life of discipleship is an “everyday affair.” (7).
