WTM, over at Der Evangelische Theologe, has recently anounced the Second Annual Karl Barth Blog Conference. Here’s the rundown:

The topic for the conference will be Eberhard Jüngel’s God’s Being is in Becoming: The Trinitarian Being of God in the Theology of Karl Barth. The projected schedule is as follows:

  • Day 1 – “Introduction,” by WTM
  • Day 2 – “The Passion of God: Some Questions for Jungel on Divine Suffering,” by Scott Jackson; Response by Matthew Bruce.
  • Day 3 – “TBA,” TBA; Response by TBA. (Looks like Halden from Inhabitatio Dei will probably fill this spot.)
  • Day 4 – “Minor Premise: Incipient Theological Ethics in God’s Being is in Becoming,” James Cubie; Reponse by Shane Wilkins.
  • Day 5 – “God’s Objectivity: Revelation as Sacrament in Jüngel’s ‘God’s Being is in Becoming’” by Thomas Adams; Response by Chris TerryNelson.
  • Day 6 – “Demythologizing the Divide between Barth and Bultmann: Jüngel’s Gottes Sein ist im Werden as an Attempt toward a Rapprochement between Karl and Rudolf,” by David Congdon; Response by TBA.

In addition,  Steve Holmes has recently bloggified Bruce McCormack’s soon-to-be-infamous TFT lectures entitled, ‘The Humility of the Eternal Son: A Reformed Version of Kenotic Christology’. Check them out (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

The Sauce:

– Ben Myers on the proper relationship between biblical and systematic theology.

– Dan on Exploring Traumatic Countertransference.

– Halden on Grace as Interruption and Superadditum.
