Around the watercooler

In case you have nothing better to do, here are some interesting recent posts from around the blogosphere:

  • Fred Sanders on The Modern Doctrine of the Trinity. Sanders provides a very helpful discussion of the modern retrieval of trinitarian doctrine, but he pushes this retrieval back to the Romanticism of the 18th century and the turn to history, experience, and the past as sources of theological knowledge.
  • Ben Myers posted a request for good books on theological ethics, and the comments are well worth perusing if you’re at all interested in that topic.
  • On the same note, Jason Goroncy has posted a list of good books and resources on theodicy.
  • Steve Duby has an excellent post on understanding Barth on receiving the Word of God. He does a very nice job unpacking what Barth means when he says that receiving the Word is an event in which even the very condition for the possibility of that event lies in the event itself. (If that summary made no sense, read the post.)
  • Paul Helm has begun a new series of posts on Vanhoozer’s Remythologizing Theology.
