For the New Year: Check Out Ted Grimsrud’s New Blog
I have mentioned before the website, Peace Theology, by Ted Grimsrud, who teaches theology and peace studies at Eastern Mennonite University in Harrisonburg, VA. That website is a treasure trove of Grimsrud’s writings and reviews of other writings concerning issues related to war and peace from an explicitly Christian pacifist perspective–specifically from one who is an adult convert to the Anabaptist-Mennonite tradition.
Well, now, Grimsrud has launched an accompanying blog, Thinking Pacifism. Here Grimsrud is “thinking aloud” on peace related subjects and inviting feedback on writings in progress–such as the book he is writing on the moral legacy of World War II. He has just begun a series of posts titled “Is Karl Barth good for Mennonites?” (Some Mennonite theologians such as John Howard Yoder have said “yes,” but others such Gordan Kaufman disagreed.)
All who are interested in these topics will profit from frequent visits and interactions–and what a good way to start the new year.
