F. LeRon Shults

I was pleased to discover that the impressive young theologian LeRon Shults has a personal blog, which also includes information about his various current research projects. Among other things, he’s writing a book entitled Christology and Contemporary Science (Ashgate/Eerdmans, 2007), with the following chapters:

1. Introduction
2. Incarnation and Evolutionary Biology
3. Atonement and Social Theory
4. Parousia and Physical Cosmology
5. Resources for Reconstruction

Sounds like it will be another fascinating book! And it looks as though he and I will both be at the same conference in January on Complexity Theory, Emergence, and the Influence of Life on Matter.

This forthcoming book sounds utterly fascinating! Such chapter titles as this would keep me reading through the night. Thanks for the heads up.

This book's been on my 'to read' list since Shults mentioned its impending publication in Reforming the Doctrine of God. Does anyone have any idea of when in 2007 it's likely to be published?

Ah, I've just realised who this is. I have a couple of his books from the library and have even referenced him in my Pauline Christology research.

Hi, this is LeRon, and I should apologize about the Christology and Science book... my theological eyes are always bigger than my theological stomach and I anticipated finishing this project sooner than I thought.

OK, that metaphor didn't quite work... but the point is that I am still working on the project, and hope to finish it up this summer. (Other projects and a move to Norway have slowed me down a bit!).

But I'm presenting on part of it (Parousia and Physical Cosmology) at the AAR next month.

I hope to post ideas on the book on my blog this spring, as I make progress, and would welcome any feedback.
