In this incendiary new work, controversial author and speaker Peter Rollins proclaims that the Christian faith is not primarily concerned with questions regarding life after death but with the possibility of life before death. In order to unearth this truth, Rollins prescribes a radical and wholesale critique of contemporary Christianity that he calls “pyro-theology.” It is only as we submit our spiritual practices, religious rituals, and dogmatic affirmations to the flames of fearless interrogation that we come into contact with the reality that Christianity is in the business of transforming our world rather than offering a way of interpreting or escaping it.

Belief in the Resurrection means but one thing: participation in an insurrection.

Quotes & Awards

  • In this book, Pete takes you to the edge of a cliff. And just when most writers would pull you back, he pushes you off. But after your initial panic, you realize that your fall is a form of flying. And it’s thrilling. Rob Bell, author of Love Wins and Velvet Elvis

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian | 1/23/2014

    " This book was absolutely fantastic! Rollins does it again. This is no easy book to read and I plan on going through it again and again. However, it is more than worth it. Rollins helps us question our idealized live and shows us what it could look like to find your live by losing it, by losing your identities and your certainties. Rollins points us towards how Incarnation, Crucifixion, and Resurrection transform us. "

    " Wow! Most of this book is now pink from my highlighter. Profound. A head-scratching, revelatory, mind-boggling, of a book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jillvicky | 10/14/2012

    " Dense. Rollins makes one think and is quite comfortable with challenging assumptions. Often not understood or misunderstood, I'm sure, by the mainstream. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brian | 10/10/2012

    " Still trying to digest Rollins' work here. It seemed to be under-developed. I think he is on the right track, but I found the beginning part lacking. Then the second part seemed somehow disconnected from the first. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brad Mullet | 8/28/2012

    " You'll either get ripped apart, or it will be a breath of fresh, insightful air. "I am God," said Love. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 8/4/2012

    " Really thought provoking book. Its quite philosophical and sometimes he came close to losing me and I was not sure exactly what he was thinking. Probably did not agree with everything he said but it was a good book to read and think about. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chuck Powell | 7/20/2012

    " I think it's really good...I think...may need a re-read as it's pretty heavy if it's unfamiliar territory. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bryan Neuschwander | 6/17/2012

    " Alternately depressing and engaging, kind of like the Hunger Games with less fire and more pyro-theology. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn Witzel | 5/12/2012

    " Theologically rich challenge to a lay person like myself. A lot to think about, especially during this season of Lent. "
