Meanwhile, back at the ranch… (December 31, 2019 ed.)

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

…or, The Past Fortnight in the Theoblogosphere.

It’s been about four months since the last link post, but New Year’s Eve felt like a good time to do another.

It was a very busy Fall, professionally speaking. The highlight of it was getting to travel to Hannover, Germany to deliver a public lecture as part of a Ringvorlesung on Karl Barth and politics (click here to see the brochure) at the invitation of Marco Hofheinz and the Leibniz Universität Hannover Institute of Theology.

So that was a great opportunity and experience, and writing the lecture absorbed a great deal of time and energy.

In the meantime, an article that I’ve been working on for a long time made it into print: “Theory and Praxis in Theology ‘after’ Karl Barth: Eberhard Jüngel and Helmut Gollwitzer on Socialism and Solidarity,” International Journal of Public Theology 13 (2019): 432–48. I gave a version of this paper at AAR a few years back, and I’m glad to have it in circulation.

But enough about me.

Scott Jackson published a review over at the Christian Century website: The suffering Jesus in Shawn Copeland’s theology: African American spirituality and God’s act of solidarity.

David Congdon did a “podluck” thing about what it means to be saved. Click here for the transcript / audio.

We had a party for Kayla and Chase Piers Stewart, two of my Lindenwood alumns, who made a gift to Lindenwood University to name the lounge in McCluer Hall, where the School of Humanities faculty have their offices. These are two of the best human beings I have the privilege of knowing.

George Hunsinger did an interview with Richard Keith on the Karl Barth for Dummies site.

And now, on to the links!

Here’s what has been happening at DET (such as it is):

And here are some interesting reads from around the interwebs:
