On the Lived Theology Reading List: Still Convicted

Still Convicted, Eddie HowardA Story of Redemption, Reconciliation, and Restoration

In his recently published memoir, PLT contributor Eddie Howard reflects on his journey of brokenness through the eyes of the redemptive power of God – eyes that look upon us with hope of a future that he refused to see at the time of his silent bondage. Still Convicted is not just his journey but the journey of the many who have dared to step into the dark world of drugs and street life, a life that leads down the road of incarceration and bondage for many people and in many different ways.

PLT contributor John Kiess writes:

For the past two decades, Eddie Howard has worked as a tireless advocate for the marginalized and excluded, touching the lives of countless individuals through his remarkable story of transformation. Still Convicted tells that story.

The Lived Theology Reading List forms a collection of publications–many unaffiliated with the Project–that work to plumb the theological depth and detail of lived experience. Their authors, like Howard, are our fellow travelers in lived theology whose practices illustrate the importance of theological ideas in public conversation and whose work we support.

We invite you to continue contributing to the Lived Theology Reading List with book suggestions that similarly offer rich and generative material for theological inquiry. Post your thoughts to Twitter with the hashtag #LivedTheologyReads, and the Project will select a few to feature as recommended resources.

Eddie Howard is a former staff member of Charlottesville Abundant Life Ministries, where he served as the men’s ministry coordinator. Howard participated in the Spring Institute for Lived Theology in 2005 and 2006.
