Transforming Culture: John Wilson on the Church and Cultural Ideas

April 1, 2008

I have been at the Transforming Culture conference all day, one of the best conferences Ive been to in a while. Interestingly, its a mix of creativity, academics, community, & campiness, yes it’s a bit campy in a wonderfully, playful way. Something really right about that campiness.

John Wilson (of Books & Culture fame) just finished his breakout session on “The Church and Cultural Ideas.” Stimulating. Here is the take-away quote:

If I had influence on seminary education, I would like to see a course where students read some first-rate theology of creation-along with Attenborough and Eisner and Nasrecki, and maybe E. O. Wilson on ants thrown in for good measure. Too much talk about Creation is divorced from the messy particulars. Too much talk about insects is divorced entirely form their Creator. It would be good to bring them together.
