A Model for Theological Debate
I call attention to this interview because I take it to be a model for fruitful Christian dialogue and even debate over those matters on which the faithful disagree. If we could strive to see the strengths of the other side and attempt to discover what might have in common, then our differences (real as they are) would be set in their proper context. Let’s take a cue from Sanders and Starke. We will undoubtedly be increasingly faithful representatives both of our common faith and the particular theological traditions we claim.
