Ep31. In His Own Strange Way, with Geoff Thompson

“These words remind us that God loves the world by doing something concrete for it…”

Liam Miller (alumnus of the University of Divinity) sat down with Reverend Dr Geoff Thompson to talk about his new book “In His Own Strange Way: a Post-Christendom, Sort-of Commentary on the Basis of Union.” In this episode of Love-Rinse/Repeat, they talk about Jesus, the way the Basis of Union wraps the story of the church in the much bigger story of Christ and cosmos, the importance of going ‘back to basics’ when asking questions of the Bible, and the purpose of Ordained ministers as ensuring “the church keeps its witness to Christ and participation in his mission at heart of why it exists”.

Geoff Thompson is Coordinator of Studies: Systematic Theology at Pilgrim Theological College. His writings include Disturbing Much Disturbing Many: Theology Provoked by the Basis of Union, A Genuinely Theological Church, Jesus Christ According to the Basis of Union, and the forthcoming Doctrine: a guide for the Perplexed. He blogs at http://xenizonta.blogspot.com/ (go here for excerpts of the book).
