Christianity As an Abstraction Misses the Resurrection – Peter Rollins in Monday’s Weekly Video

One must participate in the Insurrection in order to participate in the Resurrection, so asserts Peter Rollins. Since the publication of How [Not] to Speak of God by Peter Rollins through Paraclete Press, I have found Rollins’ critiques of Western forms of Christianity helpful when thinking about transformation.

Rollins’ second book, Fidelity of Betrayal, prompts a deep thinking when talking about those things to which we are faithful. I am awaiting the release of his new book which some see as “fighting” his first book in pressing Rollins’ project further.

This week’s “Weekly Video” is part 1 of Peter Rollins talk at Baylor University last year. Take some time to not only view part 1, but follow on to hear the full talk, I believe in four parts.

Every Baptist has to love the final illustration . . .
