Favorite Theologians of the Moment

Posted on May 30, 2007. Filed under: Theological Crap |

I would love to hear from you all on who your favorite theologians of the moment are.  Right now in order of favoriteness for me is:

Bernard Lonergan and his Transcendental Theology and Methodology.  I think his Methodology could move us forward as a people as well as a church.

Dorothee Soelle and her contemporary ideas for Theodicy.  She uses (just as Sebastian Moore does) current psychology and current theology to come to an understanding of suffering and peace in the modern world and how God plays into this struggle.

Gustavo Gutierrez and the Boff brothers and their Liberation Theology.  As long as it doesn’t go into communism or preaching violent action against the powers that be, I love Liberation Theology.

Jurgen Moltmann and his Dialectic Theology.  What list of favorite theologians would be complete without Jurgen?  I’d love to hear from you all on this, who your favorite theologians/anti-theologians are.  Basically so I can read new stuff.  No fundy crap either, I will be really angry with you if you waste my time with it.  Hopefully you’ll have enough sense to know when it’s fundy and when it’s not.  Otherwise, I’ll educate you, and I’m sure a couple other people will too.
