Worst theological problem meme

Our friend Halden has started a new meme. I’ll try to have a go at this soon. If you want to join in, you need to describe the most problematic aspect of the work of your favourite theologian – i.e., you need to subject yourself to a sort of theological self-flagellation. Which means it will be both fun and good for you.

This will NOT be easy. Couldn't Halden have waited until after Easter--or put this earlier in Lent. It feels like extreme penance just during Holy Week!

Halden said...

Hah! That's great. I'll expect a wonderful critique of John Howard Yoder from you, Michael! (Unless you have another favorite theologian that I don't know about)

Right now I imagine all the Princetonians are duking it out over who gets to do Barth!

My only way around the Princeton conundrum is to reverse the task: read a theologian who's work you despise in a charitable way. Tillich, you're up!

Michael Westmoreland-White, Ph.D. said...

Well, Yoder was never much of a systematician/dogmatician and so much of his theology was implied--and seemed to be an Anabaptist modification of Barth.

I'll have to work a critique up on Moltmann next week, Halden.
