New Faculty Book: The Grace of Being Fallible in Philosophy, Theology, and Religion

Jun 29, 2022

The print version of The Grace of Being Fallible in Philosophy, Theology, and Religion (2021) co-edited by Thomas John Hastings, Executive Director of the Overseas Ministries Study Center (OMSC) and editor of the International Bulletin of Mission Research has been cataloged and added to the collection, BD171 .G73 2021.

An e-book version continues to be available from Wright Library as well.

Summary from the publisher: "Why is epistemic fallibilism a viable topic for Christian thought and cultural engagement today? Religious fundamentalists and scientific positivists tend to deal with reality in terms of "knockdown" arguments, and such binary approaches to lived reality have helped to underwrite the belligerence and polarization that mark this age of the social media echo chamber. For those who want to take both religion and science seriously, epistemic fallibilism offers a possible moderating stance that claims neither too much nor too little for either endeavor, nor forces a decision for one side over and against the other. This book uses this epistemological approach to fallibilism as a positive resource for conversations that arise at the intersection of philosophy, theology, and religion. The essays explore a range of openings into the interstices of these often siloed fields, with the aim of overcoming some of the impasses separating diverse ways of knowing."

Preaching Resources

Jun 13, 2022

This week, as Princeton Theological Seminary hosts The Joe R. Engle Institute of Preaching, we're lifting up free preaching resources available online.

One of these is The Earl Palmer Collection, which preserves articles, newsletters, essays, transcripts, study guides, poems, lectures, commentaries and more representing sixty-four years of ministry in digital format with audio and video recordings of sermons and seminars plus selected writings by Reverend Earl F. Palmer, Class of 1956. The collection is part of Princeton Seminary's Theological Commons digital library.

Rev. Earl Palmer has served in pastoral ministries at University Presbyterian Church in Seattle, Washington; Union Church in Manila, Philippines; First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley, California and The National Presbyterian Church in Washington, D.C. He is viewed as one of the most gifted teachers of the Bible, with a unique style that unfolds the text and allows the listener to make great discoveries. As such, Earl has gained a reputation as a great expositor.1 He also has a strong interest in pursuing theological themes that are present in classic and contemporary literature, with particular focus on such authors as C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Karl Barth. As an author, Earl has published numerous articles and eighteen books plus contributed chapters in other published works. After his retirement, Earl Palmer Ministries (EPM) was created so that this teacher can keep sharing his gift with the world.

Find a link to this collection and other free preaching resources in the research guide linked at the bottom of this post.
