Walter Bruggemann, Catherine Keller, and the Emergent Church
A look at some of Bruggemann’s comments at the 2004 “Emergent Village Theological Conversation” conference, and a consideration of their intersection with theopoetics.
Applied Theopoetics: Theory
Dealing with work from Paul Ricoeur, Amos Wilder, and Richard Kearney, this video is part of a two video set dealing with applying theopoetics to pastoral theology. This vid lays out the academic theory behind the things discussed in the second, follow-up, video. This video is accessible to educated individuals interested in religion and thinking. No field specific knowledge is needed, though watching a few of the other theopoetics videos couldn’t hurt.
Applied Theopoetics: Practice
This is the second of the first two videos dealing with issues of practical theopoetic work. It addresses nitty-gritty hands-on things that can be done/considered to practice perception. It is the follow-up video to the Applied Theopoetics: Theory, and builds off of the information presented there.
