Analytic Theology Lecture Series
In order to bring analytic theology greater visibility among theologians and scholars of religion, the Center for Philosophy of Religion sponsors a series of lectures by prominent philosophers and theologians at the annual AAR convention. Topics for the sessions are normally chosen in such a way as to naturally relate to the topics of the preceding annual Logos workshop.
Ninth Annual Analytic Theology Lecture:
"Analytic Theology and the Ministry of Reconciliation"
Thomas H. McCall, former Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, delivered the lecture on November 24, 2019 at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina. The lecture was videotaped and can be viewed on our YouTube Channel.
Abstract: The doctrine of reconciliation is once again seen as something that is quite central to Christian theology, and, with the return of theological interpretation of Scripture and the renewal of analytic theology, important methodological tools are available to Christian theologians. In this lecture, I bring together the resources of both theological interpretation and analytic theology to offer a theological exegesis of 2 Cor 5:12-21. I argue for a distinctly incarnational account of reconciliation; one that is centered on the reconciliation of human sinners with God while also concerned with broader ethical dimensions.
