Like numerous other religion and theology scholars, I’m preparing for the American Academy of Religion and Society of Biblical Literature conference, which starts tomorrow. I won’t be there till Saturday (if you care), but am looking forward to a jam-packed couple of days of papers, meetings, and catching up with friends.
There are several interesting Kierkegaard sessions this time (we are still celebrating his 200th birthday, after all). I’ll be presenting in the joint session with the Evangelical Studies group and the Kierkegaard, Religion, and Culture Group.
Here is the information:
Evangelical Studies Group and Kierkegaard, Religion, and Culture Group
Theme: Kierkegaard as a Resource for Evangelical Theology
Meesaeng Choi, Asbury Theological Seminary, Presiding
Monday – 9:00 AM-11:30 AM
This session explores how Kierkegaard, a Christian thinker who first and foremost sought to revitalize Christian faith, continues to offer rich resources for contemporary evangelical theology.
Mark Tietjen, University of West Georgia
Kierkegaard as a Resource for Evangelical Theology
Kyle Roberts, Bethel Seminary
Imagination and the “Hermeneutic Imperative”: Kierkegaard for the Emerging Church
Jason A. Mahn, Augustana College
Interrogating Authenticity: Kierkegaard, Evangelicalism, and American Neo-Christendom
Aaron Edwards, University of Aberdeen
Life in Kierkegaard’s Imaginary Rural Parish: Preaching, Correctivity and the Gospel
Should be an interesting set of papers and a good conversation.
