I’ve linked to this before, but now that my clean-and-simple blog design has no cluttered sidebar (and thus, no links) I decided I should re-post for those who might be interested.
The Westminster Papers are my seminary papers, written during my years at Westminster Seminary in California (I know, I’m terribly clever). My focus was Historical Theology, but my undergrad work in Philosophy naturally lead me to research more philosophical topics (and engage in a bit of “Philosophical Theology” as well as straight historical research). I was also very interested in Eastern Orthodoxy at the time, and so I arranged to take two directed study courses with Dr. Mike Horton, focusing on the Orthodox doctrine of God (and their centrally important essence-energies distinction).
There is also a paper responding to James K.A. Smith and his book, ”Who’s Afraid of Postmodernism”, a paper on the true meaning of Boethius’s “Consolation of Philosophy”, and a paper on apologetic methodology (comparing and synthesizing Presuppositionalism and Alvin Plantinga’s Reformed Epistemology). So there is quite a wide variety! All of these papers are mediocre and amateurish at best (unlike most of my generation, I try not to pretend that all of my thoughts are pure gold just because I have an opinion and a blog, haha), but they do represent my own thinking pretty well and will hopefully serve as good discussion starters. Go ahead and have a look, then join the conversation!
