Chad had a very good summary. I read it and said, yeah that is what I wished I was thinking. This week's podcast is gonna be pretty sweet and we have interviews with Tony Jones, Brian Mclaren, and my favorite blogger who needs to come out of retirement, Anthony Smith, the Postmodern Negro. On … Read more about What is Homebrewed Christianity?
Pannenberg – Trinity pt.1
Well now from Pannenberg's understanding of revelation to the Trinity. I think it will take three parts too, but all of Pannenberg's Systematic Theology is an exposition of the Trinity. If Jesus is to be the Word of God, he is properly understood as the eternal Son and, therefore, the immanent … Read more about Pannenberg – Trinity pt.1
Chad & Tripp try our podcasting skills out
So here is Chad and I's first podcast. For some reason one of the phones sounded kind of creepy, so if it creeps you out we are sorry. Until I figure out how to have my blog title something different than the podcast title they will both be Homebrewed Christianity. … Read more about Chad & Tripp try our podcasting skills out
Pannenberg – Revelation pt. 3
It is only the self-revelation of God that creates the possibility for meaningful theological language, because without it theological statements do not amount to more than the presumptuous utterances of human subjectivity. Only the self-revelation of God can make Christian proclamation a viable … Read more about Pannenberg – Revelation pt. 3
Pannenberg – Revelation pt. 2
The Self-Revelation of God and Religion In the contemporary west, as Rahner notes, the concept of God is as enigmatic today as a blank face with a doubted existence and content. The non-thematic but innate awareness of God is important for Pannenberg to establish, although this God-given knowledge … Read more about Pannenberg – Revelation pt. 2

Pannenberg – Revelation pt.1
Pannenberg develops an understanding of revelation that takes the anthropological critique seriously. By determining to pursue his theology by locating its content solely on the self-revelation of God and not human reflection, Pannenberg seeks to answer the criticisms of modernity and not retreat … Read more about Pannenberg – Revelation pt.1
Pannenberg – Introduction
* So Pannenberg uses masculine pronouns for God throughout his Systematic Theology and gives a weak argument keeping them, so I use them if I can't get around them. But if you are wondering I don't think God has male parts. The Systematic Theology of Pannenberg is three volumes of an intricately … Read more about Pannenberg – Introduction
Pannenberg’s Systematic Theology
A little over a year ago I read through all three volumes of Pannenberg's Systematic Theology. I can attest that there is no experience like non-stop Pannenberg throughout a summer. Because it was so much work I decided that I would go through him again and write summaries of different doctrines, … Read more about Pannenberg’s Systematic Theology
Lyotard on Realism
I thought this was an interesting quote. Hopefully it is still interesting without having read the entire essay. 'Realism, whose only definition is that it intends to avoid the question of reality implicated in that of art, always stands some- where between academicism and kitsch. When power … Read more about Lyotard on Realism
Tony Jones Did It
Tony Jones' newest book, 'The New Christians: Dispatches from the Emergent Frontier,' just came out and I think he really did it. What the 'it' is I am not sure. Maybe it was the blend of stories, theology, dispatches, or the fact that the book held together wide open on the treadmill, but I read … Read more about Tony Jones Did It
