Post-Calvinism: Blogs to come

posted by xscot mcknight

Tomorrow I will begin a series of posts I will call Post-Calvinism, and I will begin with my journey into and out of Calvinistic theology. I know weekends are harder to stay up with reading blogs, but I’m hoping by Monday we can all be caught up.

Ok..I HAVE to see this. :) I’ve done a three-part series on Calvinism and I am curious to see where you are heading with it.

This should be fun: discussing anything that hyphenates Calvinism – “post-Calvinism,” “hyper-Calvinism” – in the Blogdom of God is like taking a blowtorch to a gas pump.I’m ready for some heuristics! (Not to be confused with Eurythmics.)

I’m a pastor…who has come through Bob Jones University and Duke Divinity School (had some classes w/ Kline Snodgrass…is he connected w/ your school???), and ended up in the PCA, so I’m really looking forward to this. I’m forwarding your site to a couple of PCA friends of mine. BTW – really enjoy your site…thanks, and please keep blogging!

Alrighty then – I’ll start bandaging my toes cause I know they might get stepped on! Also, James Hamilton at his blog: For His Renown had a good blog on whether Calvinism/Arminianism is second or third order doctrine of belief.

Sounds like a great series of blogs. And the autobiographical approach sounds particularly good — we should have more autobiographical theology, since theology is, after all, about life!

Scot, go for it! I’ve wondered who would help the church get to a post-Calvinistic place (not that we should land in Arminianism).Could Calvinism as a dominant Western world-view have led (or forced) many toward an existential nihilism…Hemingway’s prayer in “A Clean Well-Lighted Place”–“Or Nada who art in nada, nada be thy nada…”?

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
