Food for thought

Tuesday, October 28th, 2008

Here is a website to have a look at – though it can make you ‘uncomfortable,’ as one of the students observed after we reflected on it together in class. Worldometers “is world statistics available in a thought-provoking and time relevant format to a wide audience around the world. Sources are carefully selected to include only data published by the most reputable organizations and statistical offices in the world.”

They have it available also in other languages besides English.

McClendon links

Friday, September 19th, 2008

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!
