Welcome to ThinkTheology...
the·ol·o·gy - noun, the study of God and religious truth; rational inquiry into the existence and nature of the divine.
This blog was set up by a group of pastors who enjoy spending time wrestling with deep theological questions and helping others to engage with them. Essentially we are a bunch of thinkers and writers who are passionate about the Church, and think that what you – and we – think matters.
When we blog here at thinktheology.co.uk, we’re not expressing any official position for a particular denomination or stream of churches – that’s why we think it’s OK to disagree with each other about important things: politics, pacifism, limited atonement, multisite, justification, video preaching, the ordo salutis, and so on. We’re not confessional, so we don’t have a document somewhere that contributors to the blog have to sign. We don’t have a formal line on which doctrines are (in Mark Driscoll’s very helpful language) “closed hand” and which are “open hand.” We blog together because we are friends, and want to strengthen our relationships with one another and sharpen our thinking.
Almost all of our contributors are working at the coalface of church life, so what we write is forged in the furnace of teaching and pastoring the people of God. While some posts are academic in style, they are not detached from real life. Peter writes to the churches under his care in order to “stimulate you to wholesome thinking” (2 Pet 3:1). Our hope is to do just that! So we invite you to explore the blog and the papers, engage in dialogue, and share with others, because we believe that what you think really does matter.
