Most people know Carolyn Arends as a musician and songwriter. But as Billboard Magazine put it, Carolyn is “one of the most affecting communicators in any genre.”

In Theology in Aisle Seven Carolyn writes about a full-orbed Christian spirituality. She reflects on everything from the sobering judgment of God to what she calls “the serious business” of laughter. No matter the topic she addresses, she offers a refreshing, creative glimpse into the Christian life. All in 25 snapshot chapters—perfect for about a month of thoughtful devotional reading.
