Approach to Outreach

Somehow I missed this when it came out. (Here’s hoping that means I’m less addicted to the Internet!) Rev. Andrew Richard, the same man who’s putting together the Overview of New Testament Greek Syntax mentioned here, has a Lutheran approach to outreach article/paper/piece that might interest you. 🙂

Theological Poets

Peter Leithart once said in an issue of Credenda/ Agenda: “We are devotees of the Word, people of the book. Yet we can’t write stories or poetry. This is a scandal.” It is a scandal! And, while stories get some attention, poetry rarely does. So I’d like to take this opportunity to call to mind theological poets ranging through history up to the times of the mid-20th century. Let’s read them, learn from them, and develop our own!

Caveat: The list will be pretty heavy on English-speakers since poetry rarely translates. I’ll mark otherwise where I am able.
