Strange Bedfellows: A partial works cited from my Theological Foundation Statement for Ministry with Youth

February 10, 2011 · 15 comments

As part of my course work at Luther Seminary in the Children, Youth, and Family Ministry program, I was required to write a “Theological Foundation Statement for Ministry with Youth”. The process of writing the paper provided the chance for me to codify many of the thoughts that have been rumbling around in my head for the last few years (years!).

Anyway, I realized that the authors and works cited in the paper is, well, interesting. These are some strange bedfellows, to be sure. Peruse the list and draw your own conclusions.

  • Jean Baudrillard, Simulacra and Simulation
  • Gerald Bruns, Hermeneutics Ancient and Modern
  • Frederick Buechner, The Hungering Dark
  • John Caputo, What Would Jesus Deconstruct?: The Good News of Postmodernism for the Church
  • Philip Clayton, Transforming Christian Theology: For Church and Society
  • Kaiser Family Foundation, Daily Media Use Among Children and Teens Up Dramatically from Five Years Ago
  • Thomas Friedman, The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-First Century
  • Douglas John Hall, The Reality of the Gospel and the Unreality of the Churches
  • David Lipsky, Although of Course You End up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip with David Foster Wallace
  • David Lyon, Postmodernity: Second Edition
  • Lesslie Newbigin, Proper Confidence: Faith, Doubt, and Certainty in Christian Discipleship
