ThM Seminar: Readings in Modern Protestant Thought
Modernity has posed and continues to pose a number of profound challenges to Christian faith, challenges with which Protestant thinkers in the West have been wrestling for several centuries. By reading and discussing a number of important works in modern Protestant thought we want to look closely at this challenge and at the ways it has been met. Our aim, of course, is to sharpen our perspective on the intellectual and theological task in today's purportedly "postmodern" world.
“Out of the mists of the nineteenth century, there arise again and again spectral figures that refuse to be exorcised. This is particularly true of Protestant theology. Schleiermacher, Strauss, Feuerbach, Kierkegaard, Ritschl, etc. all continue to stalk the present because they have identified and analyzed so profoundly issues that still bedevil us.” A.Van Harvey (1966)
