On Wednesday, January 4th, Dr. Oliver Crisp, Professor of Theology at Fuller Theological Seminary
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.
I didn’t know that what I was doing was called ‘analytic theology’ until a few months after my Ph.D. began. I’d just been doing analytic theology the whole time I was seriously studying theology. Once informed, I was directed to a growing and exciting field of study.
As a theologian, I not only want to use exegetical tools in my study of Scripture, I also want to know how to use the tools of analytic precision in the “theological-thinking” that follows!
“When we’re talking about God,” says Chris Woznicki, a PhD student in the Analytic Theology Project, we can’t afford to be sloppy.”
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
