Theology Discussion Group: “What It Takes To Be God.”

.

Table Talk – theology discussion group: A new study begins on Thursday, January 12th from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. at The University Church. There’ll be coffee, cookies and conversation as we read “What It Takes To Be God” – an unpublished manuscript by University of Toledo faculty member, Jeanine Diller.

.

In this paper, the author looks at the “reigning orthodoxy” about the nature of God – so-called “perfect being theology” – and comments on, among other things, various tensions between this understanding and the nature of God as detailed in Scripture and the Creeds.  She develops an alternative way of thinking about God, described as “functional theology,” which is more concerned with what God does than what God is.

.

Come and join the conversation – all are welcome!  We hope that Jeanine Diller will visit with us later in the year so we can share our thoughts with her.
