My Dog Presents: My Human’s Books

Rosco books SM 2

From my dog Rosco:

My human has written some books. They’re less than ten dollars and will be good gifts for other humans. Please check out my butler’s books on the Amazon. I must return now to my life of demanding back-scratches and being spoiled. Wait, I didn’t write that last part. Bad human.

— Rosco (and J.S.)


God Became Human

“All Christian theology has its origin in the wonder of all wonders: that God became human. Holy theology arises from knees bent before the mystery of the divine child in the stable. Without the holy night, there is no theology. “God is revealed in flesh,” the God-human Jesus Christ — that is the holy mystery that theology came into being to protect and preserve. How we fail to understand when we think that the task of theology is to solve the mystery of God, to drag it down to the flat, ordinary wisdom of human experience and reason! Its sole office is to preserve the miracle as miracle, to comprehend, defend, and glorify God’s mystery precisely as mystery.”

— Dietrich Bonhoeffer, God is in the Manger
