Recently I’ve been leading an in-depth, online reading group with Tripp Fuller that aims to introduce people to some of the seminal thinkers behind the movement often called Radical Theology.
With two hundred people having signed up for the six weeks the whole thing has been a great success and is something I’m keen to experiment with again. Anyway here is a list of what we covered in the course. If you sign up you can still access all the articles and video lectures.
Week 1 – Paul Ricoeur
“The Critique of Religion” and “The Language of Faith”
Union Theological Quarterly, 28, no. 3 (1973)
Week 2 – Martin Heidegger
“Phenomenological Explication of Concrete Religious Phenomena in Connection with the Letter’s of Paul”
Week 3 – Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Excerpts from Letters and Paper’s from Prison
Week 4 – Paul Tillich
“God above God” and “Two Types of Philosophy of Religion”
Week 5 – John Caputo
“Theopoetics as the Insistence of Radical Theology”
Week 6 – Slavoj Žižek
“The Fear of Four Words: A Modest Plea for a Hegelian Reading of Christianity”
Over Lent in 2014 we will be running another online reading group as part of Atheism for Lent. More information to follow
