Uneasy Bedfellows: Finding a Home in Two Conflicting Theological Movements « Musings of a Hardlining Moderate.
This is a very important text and I submit it to my friends who have a serious interest in theology and an open mind.
Here is my short comment to Carson Clark, the author of this post:
It took you two years to write this and I have to expedite my little comment in a few minutes, as I need to leave soon for the airport.
I read your text with the greatest interest, but my baby sitting responsibility this week for three very active boys (My daughter was away) did not allow me many spare moments even for my job.
Anyway, I respect and admire those I know in the two camps you have mentioned.
Personally, I feel closer to the paleo-orthodox camp, simply because of its stronger appeal to spirituality. Although I appreciate and agree with many of the insights of the postfundationalists, philosophy is not my preferred discipline. I value it as an instrument, but I am wary of its speculative bias.
That will be all for now. I will treasure this text. Thanks.

I feel the same way. And I also love the ambiguity of it. That is why I do nbot feel threatened by postmodernity.
Still chewing on
It looks like two camps divided by the way they approach tradition: one sees it as treasure that must be preserved as to not lose value; the other takes it out from the chest and exposes it to people to re-interpret it again and again.
Extremely simplifying I shall admit, but conforting for a spectator to the scene as I see myself
My heart goes with orthodoxy, paleo & all; my brain is dragging my body with it to the as many post-postfoundationalisms history will bring up
