Jesus Creed


Italy

posted by xscot mcknight

We have been to Rome for just a few hours, but I loved the Forum and could have spent days walking amongst the ruins.

Today we are in Assisi, and must admit that Francis continues to impel a sense of detachment from the world — even when the streets are lined with trinket shops and sales. Seeing the crypt of Clare, with Francis’ garb and rope, is a sight to behold.

Thanks for all the blogs; I’ll get back to you when we return.

Professor, this appeared on this site:”While we’re at it, can someone kindly tell Dr. McKnight that “blogs” are the sites bloggers post on; they are neither the posts that appear on blogs nor the comments that posts receive, as he seems to think. It’s a common error for beginners (The Thinklings made their fair share of this mistake early on), but the esteemed Professor McKnight repeats it in nearly every single one of his blogs — er, I mean posts. ;-)”

Scot, while you are enjoying Rome and Italy (how about a very nice Italian wine?), I’m working through A NEW VISION FOR ISRAEL. Thank you for this book! More people need to know about it–especially in emergent circles. I appreciate so much your more flexible, expandable view of the kingdom of God–it’s a multi-layered reality that cannot be reduced to a neat (modern) definition. You’re raising a lot of questions for me and I’m eager to e-mailogue with you about them.

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
