  • Aaron

    Was that Clark Pinnock introducing Boyd?

    • Jacob

      Yep.

  • Greg Boyd is in my estimation the foremost Biblical theologian today. He has presented several views that have totally reshaped and reformed my theology and the way I see things now. Namely, Open Theism and the Christian faith in correlation to the American polity. I highly recommend his books, “God of the Possible” and “The Myth of a Christian Nation”.

  • Kurt, do you know if that lecture is a paper or article anywhere? I rarely have time to sit and watch a lecture but would love to read it…

    • I’m not sure. If you find it, let me know!

    • “God of the Possible” is his book on Open Theism and is available from amazon.

      • Yes. “God of the Possible” is an excellent book and I highly recommend it. It’s also from 2000, so I thought a more recent article might add some good stuff.

  • I love Greg Boyd. I was introduced to his material by Curry Blake who recommended his theses on Trinitarian Warfare Theology; “God at War” and “Satan & the Problem of Evil”. I agree with Greg Dill there, he’s one of the most important theologians in the world today. What I love about him is his open minded standpoint, and his ability to hold relationship with so many people of different beliefs. He keeps the main thing the main thing: “Jesus is the purest revelation of God’s goodness & love”. Love his stuff. I will enjoy this video! Thanks for sharing Kurt! I’m glad you enjoy Greg, too! 🙂
