On Wednesday, January 3rd, Dr. Justin Barrett will be presenting his paper on theological anthropology in conversation with the sciences.
Prayer, Love, and Human Nature: Analytic Theology for Theological Formation is a multi-million dollar initiative funded by the John Templeton Foundation at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. We are a team of theologians working on deepening and thickening out Analytic Theology, as well as applying it to the practice of Christian churches.
The purpose of the Logos Institute is to bring together analytic philosophers, biblical scholars, and theologians. One might still ask, “Yes, but what do they do?” Other than drinking tea and playing golf at the Old Course, we try to facilitate constructive dialogue between participants of these three disciplines in order to fill perceived gaps in contemporary Christian theology.
Does experiencing a mystical vision of Jesus confer authority upon the recipient such that other Christians should submit to the vision’s content or subsequent assertions by its recipient? This was one of the leading questions from Dr. Christina Van Dyke’s presentation this spring titled “Love’s Authority: Medieval Women Contemplatives and the Power of Mystical Union.”
According to Dr. Carl Mosser, Professor of Theology at Gateway Seminary, the doctrine of deification is an ecumenical one, moving through the Latin Fathers, Latin Medievals, Magisterial Reformers, and the East (both pre and post schism).
What would prevent a second fall from occurring after redeemed humans grace the shores of the new heavens and earth? If that question seems too dramatic, we could soften it a bit by asking what would prevent people in heaven from sinning. In this post I review Dr. J.T. Turner’s recent seminar paper responding to Kevin Timpe and Timothy Pawl’s engagement of such issues.
