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.
Towards the end of my MA at Fuller I was finally able to put all of the pieces of my journey together: I had a burden for mission, I loved analytic philosophy, and I felt a call to equip the church. All these pieces fit so well into Fuller’s Analytic Theology for Theological Formation Project
Like a number of other people who have ended up doing analytic theology, I didn’t set out to become an “analytic theologian.”
Figuring out what Jesus meant by the things he said, figuring out what the authors of scripture meant by the things that they wrote, and figuring out what the core doctrines of Christianity come to has been, I now realize, a (nearly) lifelong passion of mine.
Analytic Theology refers to a movement or a trajectory of similar commitments to enhance understanding, appreciation and cooperation between analytic philosophers who care about theology and contemporary theologians.
