What do Little Red Riding Hood and theology have in common? Inspired by the Red Riding Hood fable, Otto Pesch has created a series of 'new readings' of Red Riding Hood from the point of view of systematic theology, Old and New Testament exegesis, canon law, and moral theology. Offered for the purpose of a gentle teasing of theology, Pesch's What Big Ears You Have! offers a clever new twist to a common story. Written in an amusing style that makes light of theology's 'special jargon,' Pesch's Red Riding Hood in theology includes thirteen new variations in the language of all the fields of theology. Students, scholars, clergy, or anyone with a serious (or not-so-serious) interest in theology will appreciate the insight and humour Pesch delivers in What Big Ears You Have! Essays are 'Once Upon a Time There Was A Department of Theology', 'Red Riding Hood in Systematic Theology', Red Riding Hood in Introductory Theology,' 'Red Riding Hood in Church History', 'Red Riding Hood in the Old Testament', 'Red Riding Hood in Missiology', 'Red Riding Hood in Practical Theology', 'Red Riding Hood Meets Canon Law', 'Red Riding Hood in the New Testament', 'Red Riding Hood in Feminist Theology', 'A Bishop's Letter Regarding Red Riding Hood', 'Red Riding Hood in Scholarship', and 'Heavenly Epilogue: A Conversation Between Red Riding Hood and the Apostles Peter and Paul, joined at the End by Jesus Christ'.
