Vă anunț, cu un sentiment de mare ușurare, că astăzi, înainte de prânz, „după lupte seculare”, care au durat mai mult de… zece ani, am predat la Polirom textele definitive și am semnat contractul final pentru volumul Omul evanghelic. O explorare a comunităților protestante românești. Este vorba de un volum masiv, de circa 650 de pagini, format mare, ce include texte elaborate de 19 autori, din interiorul și din afara mediului evanghelic.
Volumul va apărea în librării cel mai târziu până la începutul lunii septembrie, iar până la finalul aceleiași luni va fi disponibilă și versiunea ebook.
În viitorul apropiat voi voi începe să comunic, din când în când, mai multe informații despre acest proiect editorial.
Până atunci, pentru cei interesați, iată mai jos cuprinsul volumului.

Dumitru Staniloae’s encounter with the West
Proponent: Petre Maican (University of Aberdeen)
Dumitru Staniloae (1903-1993) has been one of the most creative Orthodox theologians of the twentieth century, yet one of the least known. His theological vision is a majestic combination of Florovsky’s’ neopatristic epistemology, philocalic wisdom, and Romanian folkloric elements. Still, Staniloae never shone away from engaging with Western theology and philosophy whether critical or constructive. His theological ediﬁce bears the marks of his encounters with Karl Rahner, Martin Buber, Karl Barth or Paul Tillich. This panel seeks to uncover the signiﬁcance of these interactions for Staniloae’s thinking. Was Staniloae a faithful reader of Western theology and philosophy? To what extent was he inﬂuenced by theological debates in Roman Catholicism or Protestantism, especially Vatican II? How was Staniloae’s interpretation of the Fathers impacted by the trends of Western historical criticism? How did the ecumenical interactions shape his understanding of Orthodox theology?
Speakers already selected: Petrea Maican (University of Aberdeen), Viorel Coman (KU Leuven)
Disciplines involved: Theology, Ecclesiology, History, Social Sciences

Here are, according to Roger Olson, the ‘hallmarks’ of modern liberal theology:
1) A tendency to reduce the Bible to “the Christian classic” that is “inspired” insofar as it is inspiring;
2) A tendency to reduce Christianity itself to ethics such that doctrine is an expression of collective opinion always open to revision in light of changing cultural conditions;
3) A tendency to embrace and promote individualism in spirituality and doctrine while insisting on certain controversial ethical positions as matters of justice and therefore beyond debate; Continue reading “Roger Olson – What is Liberal Theology?”

During the current annual Assembly of the Church of Scotland (Presbyterian), delegates, which included my son, Rev. Daniel Manastireanu, the first ethnically Romanian minister in the CoS, has approved the Columba Declaration, ‘that recognises their longstanding ecumenical partnership and lays the groundwork for future joint projects’ (see HERE). Of the about 850 commissioners to the assembly, 50 voted against this motion and 49 abstained (see HERE). A similar motion was approved by the C of E’s General Synod in February.
