I almost picked up Pub Theology: Beer, Conversation and God to review when it came out last summer. But I had too many review books already and I decided to wait. It is currently on sale for $2.99 on kindle so I thought I would link to Englewood Review of Books review of it. I still haven’t picked it up yet, but I might.
Depending upon where under the vast umbrella of American evangelicalism you might reside, the very idea of this book is probably going to rankle you a bit. I can even hear some of you thinking, “How do beer, conversation, and God even fit together? Shouldn’t it be beer, conversation, or God? I’m not sure that we should be drinking alcohol while talking about God, and we certainly shouldn’t be hanging out in places where you can buy booze.” Bryan Berghoef would be the first to admit that he remembers having that sort of thinking himself in the past, and more importantly, he’d be the first to tell you that he does not advocate that you plunk yourself down on a stool at your local watering hole and proceed to rant about the Gospel while getting drunk.
