What would Jesus brew?

Here’s another example of “lived religion” among some progressive evangelicals: mixing theology and beer. In this newspaper article (and in his just-released book Confessions of a Bible Thumper: My Homebrewed Quest for a Reasoned Faith, Michael Camp of Washington state describes how conversations in bars increased his faith. “People think you have to go to church to talk theology, but a pub works fine,” Camp said.

This reminds me of my grad school days in South Bend. There was a weekly event at Notre Dame called “Theology on Tap.”
