“Augustine’s Theolog(ies) of Creation: Simultaneous Creation, ‘Seminal Seeds’, and Genesis 1–3.”

Good news: I have, as of this morn, submitted a new article for peer review to a Journal for Religion & Theology. It is entitled: “Augustine’s Theolog(ies) of Creation: Simultaneous Creation, ‘Seminal Seeds’, and Genesis 1–3.”

I am greatly anticipating their critiques, and am somewhat confident that it will be accepted…

Abstract: Augustine’s theology of creation is a muddled mess. In fact, one would be more apropos in referring to his “theologies of creation.” This essay argues that his theologies of creation worked in a backward fashion: that is, he was more correct at the onset of his extensive writings than he was at the end of his corpus output. Indeed, the posit of an allegorical interpretive framework for the “days” of creation as set forth in his “Against the Manichees” text, written very early in his theological career, was closer to the reality of the situation, from our post-Darwinian perspective, than his textual acrobatics in his later writings. It is concluded, then, that with respect to Augustine’s writings, one must go backwards to go forwards.

“Augustine’s Theolog(ies) of Creation: Simultaneous Creation, ‘Seminal Seeds’, and Genesis 1–3.”

Continuance of blessings!

The blessings continue to flow (despite my Bulldogs!—true fans are made in times like these!!!).
Indeed, I now have two new essays under consideration for Peer-review in academic journals:
1). McCall, Bradford. “Charles Sanders Peirce, Evolutionary Developmental Teleology, and Kenotic-Causation.” Wesleyan Theological Journal (2019): under review. Submitted 10/14//19.
2). McCall, Bradford. “Adoptionism and Jesus of Nazareth: An Exercise in (In)Congruence?” Journal of Process Studies (2019): under review. Submitted 10/14//19.

God is good all the time; all the time my God is good!

Continuance of blessings!

A Blessed man am I!

Things are happening both to me and for me at a rapidly accelerating pace. Indeed, four big things happened to me recently:
1). My dissertation proposal was signed off upon by my major advisor, Philip Clayton;

2). TWO (2) recent essays that I have constructed were accepted for peer-review publication in various academic journals:
I. McCall, Bradford. “Necessary, Kenotically-donated, & Self-giving Love.” Studia Elckie 21, no. 2 (2019): DOI: 10.32090/SE.210210.
II. McCall, Bradford. “Whitehead, Creativity, and the Immanently Creative Spirit.” Zygon: Journal of Science and Religion 54, no. 2 (2019): 337–50;

3). TWO (2) other recent essays that I have constructed were accepted for “reading” at various Academic Conferences in 2020:
I. McCall, Bradford (2020). “Necessary, Kenotically-donated, & Self-giving Love.” Wesleyan Theological Society 2020 Annual Meeting, Nazarene Theological Seminary, Kansas City, MO, 6-7 March, 2020.
II. McCall, Bradford (2020). “God and Kenotically-Donated Love: A Synergistic Symbiosis,” American Philosophical Association 2020 Annual Meeting, held in San Francisco, 8–11 April, 2020.

4). I also have three (3) recently constructed essays under consideration by various peer-reviewed Journals:
I. McCall, Bradford. “Adoptionism and the Lord Jesus Christ: An Exercise in (In)Congruence?” Neue Zeitschrift für Systematische Theologie und Religionsphilosophie (2019): under review.
II. McCall, Bradford. “Derrida & Non-Human Animals: An Exploration of Shared Animality.” Philosophy and Theology 31 (2019): under review.
III. McCall, Bradford. “God and Kenotically-Donated Love: A Synergistic Symbiosis.” Theology & Science (2019): under review.

IN SUM, GOD IS BLESSING ME BEYOND MEASURE, AND I SINCERELY AND ARDENTLY PRAISE HIM FOR IT. Please join me in doing likewise for your life, as well. Love you all.

A Blessed man am I!

CPS STUDENT SEMINARS PRESENTS…

 

NECESSARY, KENOTICALLY-DONATED, & SELF-GIVING LOVE Featuring Bradford McCall Bradford McCall argues for a notion of love that is necessarily kenotically-donated, self-giving, creative, and uncontrolling. In so doing, he uses several of Thomas Jay Oord’s texts as a launching point, and will aim at substantiating that this necessary, kenotically-donated, self-giving, creative, and uncontrolling love is fundamentally an empowerment of the other and allows for the interactivity of matter and the godhead, since it is principally pneumatologically derived by an imbibification of primal, undifferentiated matter with the Spirit of God. As McCall argues, the utmost expression of love is the utmost gift of the self.

 

Bradford McCall is a PhD student in Process Studies at Claremont School of Theology. He has three previous Master degrees and is currently finishing coursework and preparing to write his dissertation on the evolutionary advance of nature with respect to four contingentist individuals who broadly dialogue in theology & science matters: Philip Clayton, Arthur Peacocke, Stephen Jay Gould, and Thomas Jay Oord. He has published many peer-reviewed articles and has also published two books: A Modern Relation of Theology & Science Assisted by Emergence & Kenosis (Wipf & Stock, 2017), and God & Gravity: A Philip Clayton Reader on Science and Theology (Cascade, 2018). Wednesday, April 24, 2019 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Haddon Conference Room Claremont
