talking about the Christian worldview

Yesterday I was interviewed by the InternetMonk about the tension between loving God and the things of this world.  Stop by and leave a comment there or here and I’ll do my best to respond.  This is the second week of an intense summer school schedule so I will appreciate your patience.

  1. Did you cross-examine and ask him why he ditched Calvinism in favor of pietism and mysticism?

    If you’re looking for an 80’s song to serve as the title of a book on Barth, do you remember the song “Rock me Amadeus” by Falco?

    Great title, terrible song. I would need people to want to buy this book!

  4. My other thought was “Mississippi Squirrel Revival” by Ray Stevens, but that’s such an obscure take on natural theology I doubt most people would get it. It’s a shame really – there are so many “great” songs about love, but none about loving in freedom. Beth suggested the song “Our House” as a tribute to Karl and Charlotte’s unique relationship, but I don’t think that’s the image you want for an evangelical take on Barth.

    Yesterday I read a post on Chris Brauns’s blog about your book. It seemed to address a lot of questions I’ve had lately so I decided to give it a try. I have a library card for Cornerstone and was excited (and a little surprised) to see they had several copies. Then I read the “about the author” and discovered the connection.

    I’m just getting started but I am fully expecting you to change my mind on several long held beliefs. No pressure… just trying to be teachable.

    Not to keep harping on something that may or may not happen, but Beth came up with the perfect title for your proposed book on Barth: Tainted Love: An Evangelical Assessment of Karl Barth.
