Across the sea and around the world 18

1. Official website of Thomas Aquinas and Karl Barth: An Unofficial Protestant-Catholic Dialogue, a conference in Princeton, is up now.

The poster doesn’t mean that Aquinas is a Democrat and Barth is a Republican. Barth is indeed called “the Red pastor of Safenwil”, although ‘Red‘ here implies socialism!

2. Baker Academic Spring 2011 Catalog.

3. Christopher Hays (assistant prof of OT at Fuller, son of Richard Hays) is spot on: The Folly of Answering Fools. Sometimes Christians spend too much time in condemning the so-called “anti-Christian” works. It is counter productive as it actually fuels further sales of the respective products.

4. And, in condemning “heretics.” For example, Rob Bell for his soon-to-be-released book, Love Wins, which, predictably, aroused charge of universalism from the conservatives (and hence according to them heresy).

Like Barth said, you don’t believe nor disbelieve in universalism. You hope for universalism. Surely you want everybody to be saved, right?

5. Christian History magazine is reborn with special KJV 400th anniversary issue.

6. A nice article in CNN on John Dominic Crossan.

7. New Conversations on Bonhoeffer’s Theology: A graduate student conference at the University of Notre Dame. (poster here)
