Video: God is Falling Apart

This is a series I am working on (this video is a rough cut; sorry about the lighting!!) – we will be working on these with camera crews. But wanted to give you a taste. – It is a challenge to see the crucial necessity of theology to reinvent itself, work alongside other ideologies (politics, economics, philosophy and etc.) or it might not otherwise survive. Also, it is a challenge to see God in a completely different light – a G|od who is fragmented…YouTube Preview Image

    Good try! How did you come across Schelling?
    If, in your mix of German Idealism and the spin doctors of psychoanalysis you find some place for theologians, too, you may want to check out Jürgen Moltmann.

    THANKS!!! Via Hegel, Nietzche and Lacan; but like Nietzche I am an anti-idealist (not that all idealism is bad, but that we should not presume to stand their as a primary foundation but something we work toward. I am working on getting my ph.d in continental philosophy/theology…Moltmann is good however, it seems he is very ‘bound’ to the christian narrative…

    Re: ‘bound’ to the christian narrative

    Well, you mention the cross, and that is part of the christian narrative. Sure enough, you give it a new spin. I mentioned Moltmann, because the “classic” christian narrative focuses on “what does the cross do or us (humans)?” type of questions (leaving God untouched, unmoved, unchanged). Moltmann in some of his writings at least opens a door into thinking beyond that.

    and concerning the German Idealism, that was, of course, referring to Schelling, not to Nietzsche.

    Hey George
    Some ‘uncanny’ thoughts. Can’t wait for the book.

    Love the video format, George, but yes, needs better lighting! Please keep producing more of these. I’ll keep watching.
