posted by xscot mcknight

This series on Generous Orthodoxy, which I think remains an evangelical movement until it can find a genuine fourth way, I have looked at a number of features that may provide a basis for conversation as we look into the […]

Generous (evangelical) Orthodoxy: Eschaton and Back

posted by xscot mcknight

This post will be the most radical I will present on generous (evangelical) orthodoxy. The best of Christian theology begins at the End, at the Eschaton, when God wraps all of history up. And this means that the best understandings […]
