Meanwhile, back at the ranch…
…or, Something to keep you busy over the weekend…
…or, The Past Fortnight in the Theoblogosphere.
Hey! How about that? “Fortnight” was right for a change! It’s only been two weeks since the last link post. We’re back to your regularly scheduled programming here at DET. But before I get to what’s been going on the past two weeks here and around the theoblogosphere, there are two announcements that I’d like to make.
First, an essay of mine recently came into print. This is the final published version of the lecture that I gave to the Thomas F. Torrance Theological Fellowshipin 2015, which can be viewed on YouTube. Of course, you don’t get the footnotes with YouTube, and I write some good footnotes (if I do say so myself). So give the link below a click and check the essay out for yourself:
W. Travis McMaken, “Actualism, Dualism, and Onto-Relations: Interrogating Torrance's Criticism of Barth's Doctrine of Baptism,” Participatio 6 (2016), 1–31.
Second, it was recently announced that David Congdon has joined the line-up for the Jesus 1224 online conference! His topic is “Finding Jesus Outside Creedal Christianity,” and you won’t want to miss it. Besides, there’re lots of other interesting folks participating in this conference as well. Be sure to sign up.
Ok, on to the links! Here’s what we’ve been up to at DET:
- Abortion, Authoritarian Self-Deception, Evangelicals, and Trump: a collected Twitter essay from Christopher Stroop
- Francis Turretin’s Ecclesiology, 18.9: Is the church always glorious?
- Retrieving General Revelation with Robert K. Johnston
- Augustine, Ambrose, and Imperial Power in Church Politics: with Garry Wills
- Christ, Conscience, and Revolution: Once More with Barth on Calvin's Catechism
And here’s some other good stuff:
