C. C. I. Fenn Portrait

About the Author...

Hi there. I’m C. C. I. Fenn, a pastor and writer who lives in the foothills of western North Carolina with my wife and three (soon to be four) children.

If you hang around long enough, you’ll learn my theological biases but just to make it easy (and so you aren’t caught off-guard), I’ll lay out the basics here: I’m firmly planted in the Wesleyan-Arminian tradition. I’m amillennial, non-dispensational, egalitarian, and I have a high view of the sacraments (which should be evident from the fact that I call them ‘sacraments’). As a child of the Church of God (Anderson) reformation movement, I’m also a strong believer in the unity of God’s people and the power of the Holy Spirit to actually make us holy.

Oh, and I love Johnny Cash.

With all of that said, the purpose of this blog is pretty straight-forward. I want to encourage Christians to think and live deeply.

I’m Currently Reading…

If you're wondering what my next book review will be, you can check out my current reading log right here...

I heard about Cane Ridge a few months ago and knew that it was something I needed to read more about. I’ll have more about this major moment in American Christian life soon…

I taught high school English for four years and one of the things I most miss about it is reading literature. This is one of the greatest pieces of world literature and Emily Wilson’s translation absolutely shines! I’m savoring every line.

A short, easy-to-read introduction to the Wesleyan quadrilateral concept popularized by Albert Outler. Since this book has discussion questions at the end of each chapter, it would be a great book to use for a small theological group or classroom.

Over the past year or two I’ve spent quite a bit of time reading about the soul, mind-body connections, etc. This book is a fantastic contribution to that discussion and I can’t wait to wrap it up so I can review it!
