Question: Other than Merton, who is a Catholic writer every protestant or evangelical should read?
I don’t know much (um, anything) about Molinism. I do like the mental idea of infinite (parallel?) universes applying to theological thinking, though. Each universe is one in an infinite series, with God being some entitiy outside that series but able to interact with each. Of course, if you’re a fan of open theism, you […]
I haven’t followed apologetics circles for a long time, but one person I remembered and got to meet at the Cornerstone fest was Gretchen Passantino (later Coburn). It was a shock to learn today that she suffered a heart attack and died on Oct. 2. Her family is rallying around her husband, Pat, who has […]
I have to be careful. These days, if anyone asks me what I think of rapture theology, my answer is along the lines of: BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

That Naked Pastor thread is brutal, but one of the very rare cases where it’s worth it to read the comments. One of the things that kept me from going too deep with the emergent crowd was a sense of something being off that I couldn’t pin down. I loved (and still love) the idea […]

Being one of those who came through a stint in the emerging movement, I would often join the outrage at his commentary. Still, I don’t […]
Christianity in America is/was/will-ever-be changing. We’re in the middle of it, and can’t see the endgame. We’ll still try to look ahead at where things are going, though. I’m sure I’m wrong, but what I see: Mainlines won’t necessarily die off, but they’ll continue to free-fall. Those left will either end up in progressive social […]
I agree that some of the “aha” moments seem kind of weak. I even found myself reasoning through some potential explanations that didn’t fall back on some kind of inerrancy argument. Still, the series is good if for no other reason than to show others that one doesn’t need to hold to some kind of […]
Have any of you been reading Peter Enns’ “aha” moments series? He’s posting the personal stories of moments of discovery from scholars and pastors who confronted those moments when they realized something in the Bible didn’t add up the way they were taught. Some might look at it as a poke in the eye of […]
