There is a lurking Neo-Platonism in Christian thinking today. It assumes that there is a gaping hole between our inner and our outer selves and that the soul is to be seen as "good" while the body is "bad." 

Gooder here explores six key concepts, especially from the writings of Paul, before exploring their implications for how we think and speak about our spirituality today.

Brian Bantum says that race is not merely an intellectual category or a biological fact. It is a deeply theological problem, one that is central to the Christian story and that plays out daily in the United States and throughout the world. Our attempts to heal racism will not succeed unless we address a fallen understanding of our bodies. He examines the question of race, but through the lens of our bodies and what our bodies mean in the midst of a racialized world that perpetually dehumanizes dark bodies.

In this latest installment of the Homebrewed Christianity series, Eric E. Hall approaches the question of God from various perspectives. The classical conception of God is like the famously stoic-yet-lethal Mr. Miyagi in the Karate Kid. Competing versions of God include Your Hippie Aunt, St. Joan of Arc, and even the muscle-headed goons from Jersey Shore. At the end of this romp through history and pop culture, Hall argues that the God you need may be the very God you rejected years ago.

Matthew Rothaus Moser presents Balthasar as an alternative to Idealist philosophy, a thinker who develops a religious metaphysics in which the saints’ practices of prayer and contemplation are the chief mode of knowing that the Truth of Being is divine love.
