As Christians, we are commanded to “take every thought captive to obey Christ” (2 Cor. 10:5). What we believe, what we think and speak and do as a result, must be informed by and conformed to the truth of Scripture. That’s the heart behind a new eBook I’ve just released: Everyday Theology: Understanding the Ideas We Assume are True.
In seven essays that examine a few common popular ideas and Christian clichés, this short book is intended help readers to think Christianly and examine the tidbits of “everyday theology” we assume are true.
Here’s what a few friends are saying:
A friend of mine once said, “‘God only helps those who help themselves’ is not in the Bible, but it’s common sense.” In this short, punchy book, Aaron Armstrong reminds us that this phrase and others like it are certainly common, but theological nonsense. In just a few pages, Everyday Theology will make you both laugh and cry as you remember all of the times you were guilty of offering others a dose of “common sense.”
Brandon Smith, Director of Gospel-Centered Discipleship and Associate Editor at The Council on Biblical Manhood & Womanhood
In a day and time when quaint sayings and cultural truisms pass for the Word of God, many of us assume that things we’ve always heard are true actually are. Problem is, many of these sayings are only that—just sayings. What Aaron has done with this short book is help us to see over and over how easily we might assume truth and why we must not. I hope this book will help many recover a greater understanding of the true promises of God found in His Word.
Michael Kelley, author of Boring: Finding an Extraordinary God in an Ordinary Life and Wednesdays Were Pretty Normal
We’re all theologians, we just don’t realize it. And some of the trite Christian statements we repeat reveal beliefs that run counter to the Word of God. Aaron Armstrong deconstructs some of our faulty everyday theology in a graceful, but biblical way. You’ll want to get your hands on Everyday Theology and sharpen your theological muscles.
Daniel Darling, author of Activist Faith
In a day when much of what we believe goes unchallenged, Aaron Armstrong with grace and truth speaks the Truth in love to us that we might know the Word and love the Son Jesus Christ. I highly recommend you read this book and pray the Lord uses it mightily for His glory.
