TheologyGrams: Theology Explained in Diagrams

Meme’s and infographics are today’s preferred choice of communication for a lot of people – Millennials I’m looking at you…(and myself). For those of you who don’t know, infographics are “graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge intended to present information quickly and clearly” (Thanks Wikipedia) So for example, here is a cool infographicContinue reading “TheologyGrams: Theology Explained in Diagrams”

The Philosophy of the Hebrew Bible

I no longer find myself sitting in the bright, sunny, and (awfully) hot Mediterranean climate of Pasadena, rather I find myself sitting in the bright, sunny, and (awfully) hot Mediterranean climate of Jerusalem. So why am I here? To engage with a similar sort of project that the AT project is engaged with at FullerContinue reading “The Philosophy of the Hebrew Bible”

Theology as Discipleship

Theology is irrelevant to our life as Christians. At least that’s what many evangelicals tend to believe. There is this thought that runs through much of evangelicalism that theology is either irrelevant because we should be focusing on practical things. There is also another line of thought that seems to believe that theology is dangerousContinue reading “Theology as Discipleship”

Fun Fact: The only countries in which Reformation Day is a national holiday are Chile and Slovenia.

Sarah Coakley on the Task of Theology

This quote was too good not to share, however it was too long for twitter….. Here is what Sarah Coakley says about the task of theology: Theology involves not merely the metaphysical task of adumbrating a vision of God, the world, and humanity, but simultaneously the epistemological task of cleansing, reordering, and redirecting the apparatusesContinue reading “Sarah Coakley on the Task of Theology”

What is Evangelical Theology?

I am pre-ordering Michael Bird’s Evangelical Theology because it looks really interesting, and because I really think he is on to something. I firmly believe, correct me if I am wrong, all of our systematic theology should begin with God’s ultimate revelation of himself: Jesus Christ. I believe that systematic theology should be Christological. ItContinue reading “What is Evangelical Theology?”
