by Bryan Berghoef
Kindle Edition: 308 pages
Start your own pub group!
You've heard about people gathering at the pub to talk about God and faith, and wondered, why aren't I doing this?
Now you can, thanks to this new guide by Bryan Berghoef, author of Pub Theology: Beer, Conversation, and God. Pub Theology was recently featured on PBS' Religion & Ethics Newsweekly. The idea of gathering people from all walks of life to meet at the pub over a pint to talk about issues of faith, ethics, and meaning is gaining momentum. This is your chance to learn how to start your own group from someone who has been leading pub discussions for years.
Bryan walks through all the steps to beginning your own Pub Theology group:
- What is pub theology? Hint: good beer and good conversation.
- How did this start? Who else is doing this?
- Where do we meet? How do we get permission?
- Who do we invite? Are there guest speakers or lecturers?
- How do we get the word out?
- Is there an ideal group size?
- How do you facilitate? Is there a group leader?
- What do we talk about?
- and more!
Join a select group of pub leaders who have benefited from Bryan's writings and used this guide to get their own group started. (You'll have to make your own decision as to whether you prefer an IPA or a stout). And the best part of this new book: thousands of discussion topics and questions, sorted by category, that Bryan has compiled from over five years' worth of pub discussions. So what are you waiting for? This is the inspiration you've needed, and the resources to boot, all for less than the price of a pint!
If you’re wondering how to combine your interest in the craft beer revolution with your interest in philosophy, theology and faith—look no further. This handbook helps you do just that—no theology degree required! Wondering how to talk to people? How to talk to men and women who have walked away from church? Wondering how to win friends and influence people? (OK, that part might be up to you.)
Bryan will help you see why meeting in a pub is not just a fad, but about something very serious: bringing diverse voices around the table to talk about stuff that matters. This is more than a simple evangelism strategy, and goes much deeper than pub trivia. This manual will help you open up conversations with people about God in a great setting.
There are now hundreds of Pub Theology groups meeting across the country. It’s time to start your own.
