Jonathan Rutledge
Tuesday 15 October 2019

This week in Pogos we welcome Professor Andrea White back to the podcast as she continues to teach us about the hermeneutical method and theological nature of womanist theology.


 Andrea White is an Associate Professor of Theology and Culture Union Theological Seminary in New York, where she works in constructive Christian theology. And in particular, she is interested in how the concerns of womanist and postmodern thought intersect with theologies of otherness, the doctrine of God, theological anthropology, and many other areas. She’s published or edited a number of volumes, including her first monograph The Back of God: A Theology of Otherness in Karl Barth and Paul Ricoeur and her current forthcoming book, The Scandal of Flesh: Black Women’s Bodies and God Politics. She’s delivered a wide range of prominent lectures, given keynote addresses for a number of societies, and is an ordained American Baptist minister.


Jonathan C Rutledge is executive producer and host of the Logos Institute’s official podcast, Pogos, as well as its blog, creatively-dubbed Blogos. He holds a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Oklahoma, where he studied under Linda T. Zagzebski, and he holds a Ph.D. in divinity from the University of St Andrews where he studied under Alan J. Torrance. He currently serves as a research fellow at the Logos Institute, and his primary academic interests lie in the areas of epistemology, philosophy of religion, and systematic & analytic theology. His current projects include a monograph on the nature of forgiveness & a sacrificial model of atonement, philosophical Arminianism as an account of divine creation, and constructing a Foley-inspired account of epistemic rationality & defeat. His favorite pastime involves walking on the East Sands with his son, Caspian, and spouse, Bethany.

Pogos as well as a Research Fellow in the Logos Institute. Her research proposes a pneumatologically-Christocentric anthropology based upon the significance and uniqueness of the fundamental human need for intentional dependence upon the divine presence.
