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.
In a chapter titled “Truth and Being in the Hebrew Bible,” Yoram Hazony asks a pair of straightforward questions: When the prophets of Israel endorsed the individual’s independent search for truth, what did they mean by ‘truth’? Is the way the Hebrews used the term ‘truth’ identical to the way one normally uses the term ‘truth’ today?”
William (Billy) Abraham, in my opinion, is one of the fathers of analytic theology. He was doing theology in an analytic key years before analytic theology was named “analytic theology.” Thus, getting the opportunity to hear Billy present his paper, “The Challenge of Unbelief and Skepticism in the book of Exodus” at the Torah from Heaven conference, was a real pleasure.
The participants at the Herzl Institue’s Young Scholars Workshop spent an entire week discussing various topics in Yoram Hazony’s book, The Philosophy Hebrew Scripture. However, at the end of the workshop there was still some confusion as to what exactly the “the philosophy of the Hebrew Scripture” is.
From June 12th – 22nd a group of Christian and Jewish scholars, whose expertise included biblical studies, political philosophy, and analytic theology, gathered to discuss Yoram Hazony’s book, The Philosophy of Hebrew Scripture.
