Other Barth reading groups

I just wanted to make mention of several of the other groups reading through Barth’s Church Dogmatics around the blogosphere. In addition to ours, Cabe and Matt (and now Adam) have been reading through the CD for a while now. They are currently well into 2/I. In addition, Daniel Kirk is also doing a read […]

Women in Theology

While I’m a little bit late to the party, I want to make sure to direct folks to the excellent new blog, Women in Theology (WIT). Boasting nine different authors writing from various academic and disciplinary theological contexts, this blog helps to fill a  still-wide lacuna in the theological blogosphere. There are plenty of fascinating […]

The Singularity of Jesus and the Mission of the Church

I’ve recently published an interview with Nate Kerr over at TOJ that delves into some of the issues that have surfaced in recent discussions about Christology, ecclesiology, and mission. Check it out. Here’s one segment: My contention is that the focus upon the singularity of Jesus Christ forces us to rethink what we mean by […]

Make sure to check out the introductory post letting us know what’s in store for us this week and the first installment, dealing with Barth in dialogue with the Coen Brothers. Here’s the outline for the week: Monday: Barth in Conversation with the Coen […]

Two extremes

If you want to read something incredibly stupid, make sure to check out Mark Tooley’s dreck, “Mennonite Takeover.” This lovely piece of “writing” wonders if the malignant Neo-Anabaptists of today will someday repent of all the mean things they say about “traditional American Christianity,” you know, since mainline Christians have apologized profusely for killing all […]

Nuking fish in a barrel

Dave Horstkoetter has a send-up of blowhard and all around terrible human being, Glenn Beck, and his comments about James Cone and black liberation theology at The Other Journal. Check it out.

Milbank Interview

Sorry about the dearth of posts lately. Real life is real life. In the meantime here’s a lively interview with John Milbank at The Immanent Frame. Definitely worth a read.

Oh please little world! He’s kicking your head in

Ready, steady, go: Mmmm…sentimentalist ideology… And protestants are scared of theosis. But why? Fellow critics of capitalism: Don’t be over-eager to re-enchant the world. Consider dumping the dis/re-enchantment narrative altogether perhaps? Are you into being authentic? Well, that’s not bad, but its also not really all that great. Getting theology PhDs in Norway is apparently […]

As Anne as the nose on Plain’s face

And here we go: Travis posts a very apropos quote from T. F. Torrance: “The church of the risen Lord has no right to be a prophet of gloom or despair, for this world has been redeemed and sanctified by Christ and he will not let it go. The corruptible clay of our poor earth […]

Eugene McCarraher at TOJ

Chris at The Other Journal has recently posted part 1 of a three-part interview with Eugene McCarraher that is definitely worth the read. So far there’s been some fascinating commentary on things ranging from evaluating the aughts to the presidency of Barack Obama and the Tiger Woods scandal. Here’s just one quote, on conservative Christianity […]

I must be confused, Absinthe

There’s much to learn about these days: Peter Leithart teaches us about a truly biblical epistemology. I’m all for it. Church and Pomo is hold a symposium soon on Graham Ward’s new book The Politics of Discipleship. James Merrick has a probing post about theological and historical interpretation of Scripture. And a plea for help. […]

Barkeep another Mekong please

Plenty of good, interesting, and nutty stuff around the old blogosphere these days: Melissa inquires about the virtues and/or vices of book collecting, and apparently my own proclivities are a case in point. Two utterly different sets of predictions for 2010.  Proof positive that people’s predictions merely express their deepest wishes, never their smartest thoughts? […]
