Family needs and school matters forced me to take a break from blogging for the past several months. I have missed the conversations. My Summer language intensive is almost done and I will be returning to the blog this Friday.
I am also aware that we have picked up a lot of new listeners (this is primarily a podcast after all) and thought it would be good to wade back in via some introductory material. It will be a nice way to orient folks to our unique flavor of christian theology.
Starting this Friday (with A), Callid and I am going to work our way through the alphabet – highlighting each day a different topic and why it matters. I will be asking (as I am prone to do) ask if it might look different in the 21st century.
We will start with ‘Atonement’ on Friday and I am leaning toward ‘Baptism’ on Saturday. I am going to utilize two resources:
- The Pocket Dictionary of Theological Terms by Stanley Grenz – $6 on Kindle
- Essential Theological Terms by Justo Gonzalez – $10 on Kindle
What topics would you like to see covered? I am open to suggestions.
After we go through the alphabet, I am going to circle around and covers theologians/authors who’s work is important to know about.
I will pair 2 each day:
– Grace Ji-Sun Kim and Catherine Keller for K, – you can hear the podcast with Kim [here] and with Keller [here]
– James Cone and John Cobb for C, etc.
This should be a fun Summer Series to get new people involved and oriented to what we do around here!
