God Moments, by Jeremy Langford
Theology-on-Tap" is a young-adult ministry that originated in the Archdiocese of Chicago over 20 years ago. On various evenings throughout July, God-talk, friends and beer or other beverages come together as a means of building Christian community. Over 60 Roman Catholic parishes serve as home base for about 3,000 20- and 30-somethings who gather to hear speakers engage them in conversation. This outreach ministry has been the model for many others in cities across the United States.
Jeremy Langford takes a Theology-on-Tap approach to theological discourse: get friends together, share stories, share a beer and reflect on the "God moments" in one's life. Reading the book was like engaging in a theological conversation with Langford. I found myself vehemently disagreeing with him on many points, and wholeheartedly affirming many others. When I finished the book I wanted the conversation to continue.
