The power of doctrine

“The stereotype of doctrine as dry and dusty cuts a flimsy caricature next to the real thing, which is brave and bracing. Doctrine deals with energies and events that are as real and powerful as anything known in chemistry or physics, energies and events that can turn the world we know upside down”

(Kevin J Vanhoozer, The Drama of Doctrine, p. xiii)

Tomorrow I want to introduce a blog that not many link to, but is a real treasure, and I really do want to finish of my series on Küng’s Der Anfang aller Dinge this coming week!

Interesting, I've just started into VanHoozer's latest as well -- it looks good although some of my friends have said they found Linbeck's postliberalism more convincing than VanHoozer's postconservatism. Sadly, I'll have to take the book a little slow since I'm overwhelmed with readings/assignments for class these days.

I'll be interested to hear your thoughts on it as you work through it.
