In this video Conversation, Joel Hunter notes the inherent strengths of both Calvinist and Wesleyan faith traditions. In fact, he points out that what are often cast as “competing” approaches really are complementary rather than at odds with one another. As we listen to different perspectives we become not just stronger, but more accurate in our understanding of the world around us
Bruce McCormack speaks mostly about Karl Barth and his view of gracious election. He does dabble with some of the divide between Calvinist & Arminian theologies. A good conversation to have for those of the mainline and evangelical churches. The audio isn’t the best, but is valuable talk.
Subtitled “Musings on a Possible Way to Move Beyond the Calvinist/Arminian Divide”
Given on 2/25/2012 at the Rethinking Arminius Conference held at Point Loma Nazarene University.
Geoffrey Wainwright is a respected Wesleyan theologian and educator. This is his retirement lecture from Duke Divinity School. Many of the academic talks like to give an introduction. This one is especially long as they read off letters and give accolades to before his retirement lecture. Skip to 18:40 to get to beginning of his talk. Might just be his English accent, but I find Professor Wainwright to be quite entertaining in lecture.
Geoffrey Wainwright, the Robert Earl Cushman Professor of Christian Theology, presented his retirement lecture after teaching at Duke Divinity School since 1983. The public lecture, “Divine Disproportion & Poetic Paradoxes: Charles Wesley at Chalcedon: the Retirement Lecture of Professor Geoffrey Wainwright,” was held in Goodson Chapel.
This comes via “The Tech-ology Show” which is a Wesleyan based podcast show. Dr. Dongell is a professor of biblical studies at Asbury Seminary (among other titles and works). A lot of talk of John Wesley, mainly that Wesleyan holiness might more reflect a Theology of Love. Skip past their general conference recaps and show introduction to get to the good stuff around minute eight.
