    Ep45. Remembering Lived Lives, Michael Jimenez

    Ep45. Remembering Lived Lives, Michael Jimenez

    I sat down with Michael Jimenez to talk about his attempt to take the foreignness of history to another level. We engage his book, Remembering Lived Lives: A Historiography from the Underside of Modernity - and I ask him about "not remembering to forget the past", empathetic reading, Barth's view of history, engaging history through cinema and image, and how history can be seen as resistance.

    Michael Jimenez (PhD, Fuller Theological Seminary) is an instructor of both history and theology at a number of schools in Southern California, including Azusa Pacific University. He is the author of Karl Barth and the Study of Religious Enlightenment.

    Ep43. Discipleship, Michael Mawson

    Ep43. Discipleship, Michael Mawson

    I sat down with Michael Mawson to talk discipleship, suffering, weakness, and the way of the cross.

    I start by asking if discipleship is inextricably tied to concepts such as these and if so, is being a disciple of Christ something we should wish on anyone... from there we range through a number of related topics and interesting thinkers from M. Shawn Copeland, to Julian of Norwich, Martin Luther to Dietrich Bonhoeffer. And we end with a helpful discussion on how this focus on the weakness of God as the locus of our salvation and basis of our faith shapes how we approach Christian mission and evangelism.

    If you're interested in exploring these ideas further, Mike is teaching a course with through United Theological College (Charles Sturt University) in Port Macquarie NEXT WEEK (starting Jan 20) which you can audit. To find out more, email joannes@nswact.uca.org.au - If you can't make that but still want to study with Mike, we talk about another course he is teaching in Sydney at the end of the episode.

    Mike also has some books you should check out: Christ Existing as Community: Bonhoeffer’s Ecclesiology (OUP, 2018); The Freedom of a Christian Ethicist: The Future of a Reformation Legacy, co-edited with Brian Brock (T&T Clark, 2016), and - just-released - The Oxford Handbook of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, co-edited with Philip Ziegler (OUP, 2019).

    Michael Mawson is Senior Lecturer in Systematic Theology & Ethics at Charles Sturt University teaching at the United Theological College in Sydney. He received his PhD in Theology from the University of Notre Dame, USA. He previously taught for seven years at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland.

    Ep 41. Christian Women in the Patristic World, Lynn H. Cohick and Amy Brown Huges

    Ep 41. Christian Women in the Patristic World, Lynn H. Cohick and Amy Brown Huges

    I sat down with Amy Brown Hughes and Lynn H. Cohick to talk about their book Christian Women in the Patristic World: Their Influence, Authority, and Legacy in the Second through Fifth Centuries (Baker, 2017). We discuss responsible remembering, the emphasis on martyrdom, asceticism, virginity, and the renunciation (or at least creative use) of money during the era, the ways women were impacting the development of the dynamic theology of the early church, how Thecla “becomes what any specific generation of the church needs her to be”, and which woman from the era needs their own, sprawling, high-budget mini-series on whatever streaming platform needs quality content.

    Lynn H. Cohick is provost and dean of Denver Seminary in Denver, Colorado. She is the author of Women in the World of the Earliest Christians and commentaries on Philippians and Ephesians. She is also coauthor of The New Testament in Antiquity.

    Amy Brown Hughes is Assistant Professor of Theology at Gordon College in Wenham, Massachusetts. She received her Ph.D. in historical theology with an emphasis in early Christianity from Wheaton College, and is the co-host of the On Script Podcast, which has conversations on current biblical scholarship.

    Ep40. The Stations of the Cross, Katherine Sonderegger and Margaret Adams Parker

    Ep40. The Stations of the Cross, Katherine Sonderegger and Margaret Adams Parker

    “The Stations speak to us in the political, social, and economic conflicts and dilemmas that descend on us all. And to a culture, to individuals, and, sadly, even to a church that scrupulously turn away from the reality of death, the Stations speak an important word about that final frontier.”

    I sat down with Mary Adams Parker and Katherine Sonderegger to talk about their book, Praying the Stations of the Cross: Finding Hope in a Weary Land (Eerdmans, 2019). We talk about their own approaches to the Stations as visual artist and preacher respectively, what we learn about the contact of the body of Jesus with the body of others across the Stations, what the Stations reveal about Mary, the power of the Stations in times such as these, finding ways to hold the together the suffering and glory of Christ, preparing art for ecclesial settings, why preaching should be invitation rather than exhortation, and why we should attend to beauty, to the sublime, when writing theology or creating artworks to the glory of God and guidance of a Christian community.

    Margaret Adams Parker is a professional artist and theological educator, deeply committed to the visual arts as a means of biblical interpretation and an aid to prayer. Her works can be found in her earlier collaboration with Ellen Davis, Who Are You, My Daughter? Reading Ruth Through Image and Text and on her website: http://www.margaretadamsparker.com/

    Katherine Sonderegger is the William Meade Professor of Theology at Virginia Theological Seminary, the first volume of her Systematic Theology, The Doctrine of God was released in 2015, and volume 2 The Doctrine of the Holy Trinity: Processions and Persons will be released in 2020.
