Meanwhile, back at the ranch…

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

…or, The Past Fortnight in the Theoblogosphere.

So . . . it’s been more than a fortnight. Oh well. I suspected as much would happen, what with the start of my semester and other sundry concerns. But here I am now, and I have quite a few links to share. So buckle up!

First, what’s been happening here at DET? I put up a couple of tame posts dealing with Calvin – typical dry academic DET fare. The first was a bit of Calvin’s correspondence with Bullinger about Luther, and the second was some stuff from Bruce Gordon on Calvin’s legal education. Then I got a bee in my bonnet and launched a diatribe against creationism. Rounding things out, we had a reflection on Christianity and Labor Day from friend-of-the-blog Scott Jackson, and DET contributor Derek Maris posted briefly about Moltmann and recent Barth research.

The rest of the links are artificially divided into the two categories this time. Of course, proper theology has political consequences and Christians ought to engage in politics with a theological perspective. But making the distinction makes it faster for me to put this thing together so just go with it for now.



“Look, A White!”

These two posts from the Women In Theology blog are such good combinations of theology and politics (even if the former goes largely unstated) that I just had to give them their own categories. The primary title of each is that of this section: “Look, A White!” And they are kind enough to provide editions for both Ann Romney and Mitt Romney. Enjoy!
