Intensives are over. Regular classes have started this week for full-time students, including the core module for Applied Theology called Baptistic Theological Perspectives, which takes James Wm McClendon’s Systematic Theology as the core text to investigate and provide context for discussion. Students were curious about McClendon as a person as well as about some basic ideas of his theological method, so I have compiled for them the following introductory list of links which may be of interest to some of you:
Embodying the’Great Story’: An interview with James W. McClendon by Ched Myers in The Witness
McClendon’s theological autobiography piece in The Mennonite Quarterly Review
the baptist vision – a blog “dedicated to Jim McClendon [1924-2000] and the legacy of his ‘baptist vision’ ” by Tom Airey; not updated recently, but providing helpful summaries and a Glossary of some key ideas – a good help for those wrestling with his Systematic Theology.
If you know of other helpful links, drop us a note!
