Meanwhile, back at the ranch…

…or, Something to keep you busy over the weekend…

…or, The Past Fortnight in the Theoblogosphere.

It’s a week early for this post on the normal rotation, but I came across some important and worthwhile stuff that I wanted to spread the word about.

First off, it is time to begin announcing that Bruce McCormack will be delivering the 2011 Kantzer Lectures in Revealed Theology at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in a week or so. Thanks to Jason Goroncy, from whom I shamelessly stole the below:
Lecture One: Tuesday, September 27 | 7:00-8:30 pm
“The Erosion of Protestant Commitments in the Evangelical Movement: On the
Importance of the Doctrine of God in Evangelical Theology Today”


Lecture Two: Wednesday, September 28 | 2:00-3:30 pm
“From the One God to the Trinity: The Creation of Christian Theism”

Lecture Three: Wednesday, September 28 | 4:00-5:30 pm
“The Great Reversal: From the Economy of God to Triunity in Modern Theology”

Lecture Four: Thursday, September 29 | 4:00-5:30 pm
“The God of Covenant Faithfulness in the Old and New Testaments”

Lecture Five: Monday, October 3 | 2:00-3:30 pm
“Which Christology? Refining the Economic Basis of the Christian Doctrine of God”

Lecture Six: Monday, October 3 | 4:00-5:30 pm
“The Processions Contain the Missions: Reconstructing the Doctrine of an Immanent Trinity”

Lecture Seven: Tuesday, October 4 | 4:00-5:30 pm
“Nature and Freedom in God: On Aseity and Passibility”
Second, I recently came across some theological gems on Youtube. Thanks to Michael Leyden for putting me on to these. StJohnsNottingham has a number of interesting videos up, including the following:
Paul Nimmo on Schleiermacher

David Fergusson on Bultmann

Tom Greggs on Bonhoeffer
Third, Robert Grow just posted some information about the book that he edited with Myk Habets on Evangelical Calvinism.

Cheers for the link, Travis. Full versions of all the interviews, including David Clough on Barth, Anthony Thiselton on Ricoeur, Karen Kilby on von Balthesar, and Rachel Muers on feminist theology are being edited and put into a DVD timeline. There's more information at the Timeline website: http://stjt.org.uk/

I think Tim Hull, who heads it all up, is also doing a New testament Timeline along the same lines, and an Early Christian Origins version.

Are there any plans to webcast McCormack's lectures as far as you know?
