Roger Olson is professor of theology at George W. Truett Theological Seminary of Baylor University in Waco, Texas. He is also one of the most prolific patheos bloggers and has probably written at least two blog posts on whatever theological topic you can come up with. Check it out.
In our conversation Olson describes his understanding of divine providence and the need for Christians to seriously wrestle with it. He engages and critiques classical theology, process, open theism, panentheism, calvinism, scripture, science, tradition, and more. Luckily you can listen and also check out the text of the talk itself here.
After you hear this and decide to get yourself a book of Olson’s check out The Mosaic of Christian Belief, The Journey of Modern Theology: From Reconstruction to Deconstruction, and Questions to All Your Answers. If you are wise you will check out the book both Roger and I love – A Scandalous Providence by E. Frank Tupper. It changed my life.
