What if Real, Transformative faith as it pulses through the heart, sounds more like punk rock then a calculated hymnal or concerto? In a world of people addicted to some piece of certainty on "faith-based" reason. Punk Theology exists to explore some hopeful, uncomfortable questions on growth, peace, well-being, recovering what's lost, understanding the plight of "the other", faith, fear and being alive. An examination of the misfit's awakening spirit. So... How do you define meaning, beauty and truth?
