Voices of Advent: Jack Caputo on Expectation

Popular theoblogger and pastor Tripp Fuller of the Homebrewed Christianity Podcast caught up with a few of our favorite progressive Christian thought-leaders at the American Academy of Religion convention last month, and invited them to reflect on the season of Advent. We’ll be posting one video response each week as the church waits and anticipates the coming of God.

This week, philosopher/theologian Jack Caputo, author of The Weakness of God, shares his thoughts on Advent: “Everything that takes place in prayer I think is contracted into ‘come.’ It’s the one word that everything that I’m interested in as a philosopher and everything that I’m interested in about Christianity and everything that Christianity itself is. … What’s the definition of Christianity? One word: Come.”
