Theologizin' Bigger: Homilies on Living Freely and Loving Wholly

Trey Ferguson

Theologizin' Bigger is a book by bestselling author, pastor, podcaster, and public theologian Trey Ferguson that offers readers a common-sense, accessible, and modern perspective on the nature of God.

If you believe there is an active, divine force impacting the world around you, congratulations. You've been theologizin' this whole time. Theologizin' isn't just for the theologians. It's for everybody who's thinking thoughts about God. Good thoughts. Bad thoughts. Skeptical thoughts. Undoubting thoughts. Old thoughts. New thoughts.

In Theologizin' Bigger, Trey Ferguson tackles the messiness of believing through thoughtful interrogation and shows the unlimited potential of faith. With personal stories and some lo-fi truth-telling, Ferguson leads us through topics like how we read the Bible, our inherited traditions, accountability, our value, and a faith that can shape tomorrow.

Faith unleashes the imagination. Should you be bold enough to try it, faith will have you living the life you never imagined.

"Ferguson's book has deep importance for those who know (or don't know) they're stuck, and for anyone who feels the questions bubbling up, even those who hadn't realized it was okay to ask them." -Englewood Review of Books

Earned #1 Amazon Bestseller in Liberation Theology

Praise for this book

"Trey is not only pushing us toward bigger theologies that can hold the totality of who we are. He is calling for us to embrace better theologies-theologies that fully honor our humanity and the God who fashioned us as good creation."

Candice Marie Benbow, author of Red Lip Theology

"In his powerful debut, Trey Ferguson reminds us of the liberation that can be found when we value the art of speculation; when we allow God to be bigger than we can fully capture; and most of all, when we bring our true, full selves to the theological table."

Kat Armas, author of Abuelita Faith

"Theologizin' Bigger grants followers of Jesus the permission to re-engage their imaginations in the life of faith. It is a hopeful resource for those who find themselves in the midst of questions, doubts, and shifts in their faith."

Kate Boyd, author of An Untidy Faith: Journeying Back to the Joy of Following Jesus

"Theologizin' Bigger is not merely an indictment of status quo Christianity, it is a treatise on liberation. Readers can become freer, and in that freedom see God better."

Dennis R. Edwards, PhD, Dean, North Park Theological Seminary

"Trey Ferguson's Theologizin Bigger is a timely invitation to transcend restricted theological imaginations and instead embrace the liberating heart of the good news."

Drew G.I. Hart, author of Who Will Be A Witness?: Igniting Activism for God's Justice, Love, and Deliverance

"Trey's book is not a lamp to light our path but a guide to walk with us on the journey of reconstructing what we set our hope in."

Camille Hernandez, author of The Hero and the Whore

"Trey Ferguson's book, Theologizin' Bigger captivates readers with his surgical communication style, effortlessly simplifying complex theological concepts and making them accessible in today's world."

Terence Lester, author of I See You, When We Stand, and All God's Children'

"Theologizin' Bigger is a beautiful testimony of the ways in which Trey understands God and seeks the wisdom that can be found in leaning into the nuanced places of others who don't necessarily believe what he does."

Robert Monson, co-director of enfleshed

"Theologizin' Bigger is what we need to chart pathways toward a wider liberation for all. Dig into this!"

Rohadi Nagassar, author of When We Belong

"In spite of all the ways dominant Christianity has tarnished faith, Ferguson reminds us why the story of God has captured the imaginations of overlooked and exploited people throughout history."

Kevin Nye, author of Grace Can Lead Us Home

"It's a tall order, but I want four things in a book: brilliant writing, an education, laugh-out-loud humor, and inspiration to be a better human. In Theologizin' Bigger, Trey delivers on all four counts and then some."

Marla Taviano, author of unbelieve
