A new blog

I've asked Kevin, author of the new blog, to write a few words introducing himself and his aims in blogdom.

"Greetings. My name is Kevin, and I'm a systematic theology student at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland (but I'm originally from North Carolina), with yet another blog in the overly-crowded blogosphere. I don't pretend to fill some need in the blogging world, but perhaps frequenters of Chrisendom would find the blog interesting. I plan to do a mix of issues from the more serious (dogmatics, fundamental theology) to the less serious (music, cultural observations). I consider myself modern Reformed (Forsyth, Barth, Brunner, Torrance) and Evangelical (from Luther to Billy Graham) but Balthasarian Thomism is beckoning me.

My own concerns and thoughts are quite scattered, but this is part of the passion that drives me to do theology – I actually think, e.g., that the legitimacy of a Protestant aesthetics to be immensely important, not just for my own understanding of God but for that of the whole world, or we could mention the Reformed critique of Lutheran metaphysics, T. F. Torrance's attack on Western ontology and epistemology, Paul's understanding of law, whether Mary was immaculate and bodily assumed, and so forth. So, these are some of the scattered themes one may find on my blog. For those who may stop by, I give you a hearty welcome. By the way, the title, "After Existentialism, Light," if you haven't guessed, is a play on "Post Tenebras Lux" (After Darkness, Light) from the Reformation."

Do give his blog a look - he sounds like a rather clever chap!
