Nashville Cohort: Radical Orthodoxy Resources
Much longer ago, in 1966, a bloke called Bob Towler interviewed me. He was doing a sociological study on theological education, and wanted to know my churchmanship. There were five choices:
- Prayerbook Catholic
- Modern churchman
- Liberal Evangelical
- Conservative Evangelical
Over the next few days this stuck in my mind. How would I describe my "churchmanship", or ecclesiastical position, or whatever it was. Eventually I settled on "Revolutionary Orthodox", even though that wasn't one of Bob Towler's choices.
It was based on G.K. Chesterton's idea that as long as the vision of heaven is always changing, the vision of earth will always remain exactly the same.
I'm not sure how that fits in with "Radical Orthodoxy" -- does anyone know?
