We’re closing out 2010 in a big way by continuing the Christology series with Douglas Ottati. Professor Ottati is the Craig Family Distinguished Professor in Reformed Theology and Justice Ministry at Davidson College in North Carolina. In conversation with the reformed tradition, he takes a mediating position between pure repetition and repudiation of the past that will help us all negotiate our own faith in today’s world.

Recent books include Theology for Liberal Presbyterians and Other Endangered SpeciesReforming Protestantism: Christian Commitment in Today’s World, and Hopeful Realism: Recovering the Poetry of Theology. The first volume of his systematic theology, tentatively titled A Theology for Liberal Protestants, will be available sometime next year.

We have a guest host this week for our intro…our newest deacon, St. Nick.

Music this episode is Ben Bowen King’s “Will the Circle be Unbroken” from the album, “The Shepherd’s Story,” available on iTunes.
