    Anybody here read anything that could be considered "deep theology"? WHEN WE TALK ABOUT GOD...LET'S BE HONEST does not count as deep theology, nor does the LEFT BEHIND series.

    Anyone? Anyone?

    Something I've been working on for about a year is "The Divine Conspiracy" by Dallas Willard. I read it for a while, put it down and think about it. Then I reread it and move to the next chapter. It's slow going but a very interesting read.

    Would Yoders "The Politics of Jesus" be considered deep? I'm reading it again.

    Well, here's what I'm plowing through right now:

    1) NIC on Hebrews (Don Hagner)

    2) The Formation of the Christian Biblical Canon (L.M. MacDonald)

    3) Christ, Our Righteousness (Mark A. Seifird) From the IVP Biblical theology series.

    Any of those count?

    Sounds like you guys are reading some serious stuff - especially with reading Dallas Willard. He's solid!

    Rev G, what exactly would you consider "deep theology"? Would the works of Watchman Nee be considered therein?

    Some theology has gone so deep, it is in the mud.

    I am re-reading The Life and Times of Jesus The Messiah, Edersheim, 2 volumes. It is always a good read. When I finish these, I shall start on the four volume set on the Life of Christ by Lange.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    PS...49 more posts and I can get my mug shot posted....without doing porridge.

    To tell you the truth, it is quite difficult to read. I read a little bit at once.
    It brings out the awesomeness of God Himself condescending to the cross.

    There are more different views of the exact nature of the atonement than I had realized.

    Jimmy:

    Watchman Nee is an interesting character - especially since a lot of "his" works aren't really his. I guess you could consider Nee "deep".

    Looks like you are reading some "deep" stuff and some "devotional" stuff. Edwards is ALWAYS deep!!!

    What do you think of Gill? In your opinion, is THE CAUSE OF GOD AND TRUTH Hyper-Calvinistic?

    Mr. Honeycutt:

    I'm not familiar with Yoder's THE POLITICS OF JESUS. Would you mind summarizing the thesis of the book for us? It sounds interesting.

    What do you think of MacDonald's work? Is it consistent with your own view of the "Canonical Process"? Do you believe that the Canon was "formed" or "recognized"?
