Has anyone read Carl Truman's series "Some Thoughts on Systematic Theology as Poor Relation? http://www.alliancenet.org/mos/post...eology-as-poor-relation-part-one#.XFgmqPZFyUl http://www.alliancenet.org/mos/post...ent-of-doctrine-some-thoughts-on#.XFgm7_ZFyUk He makes the statement "Sadly the doctrine of God simply does not grip the cultural imagination of conservative evangelicalism in the way that other doctrinal loci do." I'm on board thus far. Then he says next, "At the heart of the problem from the perspective of theological education, at least as it manifests itself in reformed circles, is the pedagogical (and thereby metaphysical) triumph of Biblical over Systematic Theology as classically understood." Here I fall off ship. I've read both articles and await the next, where I hope he can recover me. His conclusion that the lack of interest in the doctrine of God is the fault of the methods of Biblical Theology and its having a prominent place in theological education seems extreme. Can anyone elaborate or give specific examples of who (seminary, denomination, religious personality, etc.) he is talking about?
