…or, The Past Fortnight in the Theoblogosphere.
This should have been posted on Saturday, but I’m lucky that I was able to bang it out at all. So, if there is anyone out there who would possibly care about this delay: deal with it. Of course, I’m talking mostly to myself…
Anyway, here is a very brief list of links. I’ve been doing my best to stay on top of goings on in the theoblogosphere, but I don’t always have time to put everything interesting in the list. Obviously, everyone needs to check out my post supplying a translation from Eberhard Busch’s recently published journal of his time as Karl Barth’s research assistant. That goes without saying. So, what else should you read?
- “Impossible Possibilities: On Christian Smith’s The Bible Made Impossible” - A thought-provoking book review, and review of a review, from one whom I recently described in correspondence (to a third party) as “my theologically conjoined twin.”
- “Edinburgh Dogmatics Paper: Christology and Sanctification” - Darren Sumner posts the abstract of his paper from the…you guessed it…recent Edinburgh Dogmatics conference.
- “Things I Already Believed that Make Me Dangerously Susceptible to Barthianism” - Thoughtful reflections from a current MDiv student at PTS whom I had the pleasure of having in one of my precepts for George Hunsinger’s recent introductory course on Karl Barth.
- “Is Systematic Theology Necessary?” - J. R. Daniel Kirk poses this question and responds in the negative. My theologically conjoined twin and I contest such a conclusion in the comments (along with others).
- “Why “evangelical” is a label I won’t surrender” - Roger Olson continuing to hold the front lines.
