The Fall Issue of the Center for Theology is now available! We have some great contributions to offer for the benefit of the church’s spiritual formation.
For the Think Tank, we have five new essays from the teachers in our churches.
Douglas Dobbins discusses Thomas Aquinas’ understanding of the doctrine of the Father, along with its application to our everyday lives.
John Pryor explains Jonathan Edwards’ understanding of the doctrine of creation, exploring how Edwards’ offers a helpful way to understand God’s purposes for humanity.
Leah Easley continues her discussion on the aesthetic thought of Augustine of Hippo, showing how Augustine developed an artistic sense drawn from the best of Greco-Roman culture. Augustine’s example shows the church how to relate to “secular” culture.
Finally, Matthew Brench offers a near-comprehensive response to the question “What is Theology?” He suggests that anyone who speaks words about God is a theologian engaging the theological task.
For Spiritual Formation, we have two new articles and one incredible resource developed for our daily reading.
Jack King reflects on the “sacrament of the present moment,” which helps us draw close to God amidst our ridiculously busy lives.
Paul Aganski continues his “People of the Middle” series, in which he now describes the full consequences of the Fall and the characteristics of being subject to sin, death, and evil.
Finally, Matthew Brench has developed “An Alternative Lectionary” that takes you through the entire Bible, the Apocrypha, and Apostolic Fathers in one year. A tremendous resource.
