    Celebrating the Life, Legacy, and Thought of Jürgen Moltmann w/ Philip Clayton

    Celebrating the Life, Legacy, and Thought of Jürgen Moltmann w/ Philip Clayton

    Philip Clayton was my PhD advisor and remains a mentor and friend. We scheduled a live stream session where we planned to explore contemporary options for the doctrine of God by developing a typology of live options, but when we learned of Moltmann’s passing, it seemed fitting to pivot our plan and reflect on the life, thought, and impact of Moltmann for Christian Theology.



    As a scholar, Philip Clayton (Ingraham Professor, Claremont School of Theology) works at the intersection of science, philosophy, and theology. As an activist (president of EcoCiv.org, President of IPDC), he works to convene, facilitate, and catalyze multi-sectoral initiatives toward ecological civilization. As a disciple of Jesus, he finds himself energized by the Spirit in the Quaker community.

    Andrew Root: Secular Mysticism & Identity Politics

    Practical Theologian and friend of the pod, Andrew Root, is back on the podcast to discuss the most contentious parts of his newest book Church in an Age of Secular Mysticisms. Our conversation delves deep into some tenuous topics: secular mysticisms, identity politics, spiritual memoirs, the politics of recognition, Rousseau’s anthropology, post-COVID parties in Paris, the modern moral order, JK Rowlings, tribal politics, and the intersections of practical theology with contemporary social and cultural philosophy. So, buckle your safety belts because this will be a provocative journey.

    Faith in the Public Square with Brian Kaylor and Beau Underwood

    Faith in the Public Square with Brian Kaylor and Beau Underwood

    Brian Kaylor and Beau Underwood, authors of Baptizing America: How Mainline Protestants Helped Build Christian Nationalism, joined me for a live-streamed conversation where we discussed the book and a bunch of listener questions inspired by their recent lectures linked below.

    Lecture One: How Mainline Protestants Helped Build Christian Nationalism

    Lecture Two: How Mainline Protestants Still Perpetuate Christian Nationalism

    In the face of a rising threat to both church and democracy, “Baptizing America” provides an urgent examination and an enlightening critique exposing the dangerous undercurrents of Christian Nationalism. How can Mainline Protestants spot such practices in their own activities? A crucial call to reckon with influences before it’s too late.

    Brian Kaylor is a Baptist pastor with a Ph.D in Political Communication. He serves as President & Editor-in-Chief of Word&Way, a Christian publication founded in 1896.

    Beau Underwood is senior minister at Allisonville Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Indianapolis, Indiana, and a Senior Editor with Word&Way. He is also pursuing a doctorate in Public Affairs. Adriene Thorne is the senior pastor of The Riverside Church in New York City.

    Benjamin Chicka: Theology & Video Games

    Benjamin Chicka: Theology & Video Games

    In this episode, Tripp is joined by Dr. Benjamin Chikca. They delve into the intriguing intersection of theology, ethics, and video games, spotlighting Chicka’s book, ‘Playing as Others: Theology and Ethical Responsibility in Video Games.’ The discussion spans topics such as the impact of cultural and ethical narratives within indie video games, the relevance of figures like Paul Tillich and Emmanuel Levinas, and the evolving representation of diversity in gaming. In the conversation, we discuss:



    * Exploring the Intersection of Theology, Ethics, and Video Games

    * The Genesis of his book,”Playing as Others”

    * The Real-Life Impacts of Video Game Culture

    * Gamergate and its Aftermath

    * Embracing Culture Through Video Games

    * Humanizing the Other Through Video Games

    * Papers, Please – An Ethical Playground

    * The Neuroscience of Gaming and Ethical Transformation

    * The Power of Immersive Storytelling

    * Cultural Anxiety Manifested in Video Games

    * Real-Life Impacts and Community Building







    Benjamin J. Chicka is Lecturer in Philosophy and Religious Studies at Curry College in Milton, MA. He is a philosophical theologian whose work connects classical American pragmatism, process theology, and ground-of-being theology. Such bridge-building between supposedly incompatible positions reflects his conviction that intrareligious pluralism is as important as interreligious pluralism for the future of theology.

    Diana Butler Bass & Tim Whitaker: Faith in a Toxic Public Square

    Diana Butler Bass & Tim Whitaker: Faith in a Toxic Public Square

    Tripp & Diana were pumped to have Tim Whitaker from The New Evangelicals join us for this edition of Ruining Dinner and our upcoming open online class – Faith and Politics for the Rest of Us. Our contemporary public square is increasingly chaotic, toxic, and repulsive. Yet, our challenges as a people, nation, and species are growing. The rise of Christian Nationalism repulses a growing number of Christians who have a hard time thinking and speaking from a more vibrant theological vision. We are bringing together several alternative theo-political visions to introduce a multiplicity of vibrant, yet neglected traditions in public theology. With the help of some of the most powerful voices in the academy, participants will be introduced to these traditions and get to put them into action as we wrestle with our present moment, discovering the potential for an alternative public Christian witness. In a time where the public square is increasingly tribal and algorithmically addicted to outrage, over-simplification, and performative politics, a tour of these rich yet neglected theological traditions can inspire and fund a more vibrant Christian voice in the public square as we seek to embody the love of neighbor to which we are called. This class is donation based (including 0), so join the fun and tell your friends:) www.FaithAndPolitics.net

    Come hang out with us at Theology Beer Camp, Oct. 17-19 in Denver. Yse the code HOBBITCOTTAGE for a discount 🙂

Eye-opening Talk with “Life After Doom” Author Brian McLaren

Tripp Fuller features fresh perspectives in discussing “Life After Doom” with groundbreaking author and leader Brian McLaren. Christians need to learn much more about how the “Empire” nature of the West has shaped modern Christianity and led to the toxic and destructive legacy of existential ecological crisis.

Wish I was smarter

Love this pod cast, but it does stretch my brain a bit. It always leaves me with more to research, think about, and try to understand.
