2012 Mini-Challenge: Read ONE 'Armchair Theologian' book

Read ONE book from the Armchair Theologian Series!
Westminster John Knox Press has published a series of books for 'Armchair Theologians.' Here they are in alphabetical order:


  • Aquinas for Armchair Theologians by Timothy M. Renick
  • Augustine for Armchair Theologians by Stephen A. Cooper
  • Barth for Armchair Theologians by John R. Franke
  • Bonhoeffer for Armchair Theologians by Stephen Haynes
  • Calvin for Armchair Theologians by Christopher Elwood
  • Heretics for Armchair Theologians by Justo L. Gonzalez and Catherine Gunsalus Gonzalez
  • Jonathan Edwards for Armchair Theologians by James P. Byrd
  • Luther for Armchair Theologians by Steven Paulson
  • Martin Luther King Jr. for Armchair Theologians by Rufus Burrow Jr.
  • Reformation for Armchair Theologians by Glenn Sunshine
  • Wesley for Armchair Theologians by William J. Abraham


The goal of this mini-challenge--which lasts all year long, to give you plenty of time to join in--is to read just ONE of these books. I'm not asking you to read them all. (I certainly don't plan on reading them all.)

Christianbook.com has many of these in paperback and on audiobook. Quite a handful--at least for the moment--are available for just $3.69!

Martin Luther King, Jr -- $3.69
Jonathan Edwards -- $3.69
Heretics for Armchair Theologians -- $3.69
Barth for Armchair Theologians -- $3.69
Reformation for Armchair Theologians -- $3.69
Augustine for Armchair Theologians -- $3.69
Aquinas for Amrchair Theologians -- $3.69
