Besides the ranting of Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson, I've seen very little
in the way of theological comments on the events following Sept. 11.
However, Lutheran theologian David Yeago has a nice thoughtful article in Pro
Ecclesia, the journal of the Center for Catholic and Evangelical Thology
(CCET). It's entitled "Just War: Reflections from the Lutheran Tradition in
a Time of Crisis:, 2001, v.10, no. 4, and is currently online at
Although written from a Lutheran perspective, it should be of interest to a
broader theological audience as well.
And while you're visiting the CCET website, take note of the upcoming
conference. A while ago on this list (last summer?), there was discussion
regarding Mary. CCET is sponsoring a theological conference "Mary, Mother of
God -- On the unique relationship of Mary to Christ and the Church and her
place in the tradition of Christian worship, music, and the arts", to be held
June 9-11, 2002, at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota. Previous
conferences by CCET have resulted in multi-authored books published by
Eerdmans, so I presume this one will also.
