Episode #2: “Dorothee Soelle With Dr. Sarah Pinnock”
The Theology Now! podcast, an occasional series exploring major themes and resources from the Project on Lived Theology’s 22-year history. The podcast mines insights hidden in plain sight on the Project’s website and puts them in dialogue with theologians grappling with where God is in the world right now.
In this episode, we are going to do something a little different and focus on one particular theologian: the radical, feminist, liberation theologian Dorothee Soelle. We have an exciting interview with Dr. Sarah Pinnock, professor of contemporary religious thought at Trinity University in San Antonio. Dr. Pinnock is the author of many articles and books on theology, theodicy, Holocaust studies, and of course the thought and theology of Dorothee Soelle. The interview with Dr. Pinnock features a rich conversation about Soelle, her contributions, and what we can learn from her provocative theological voice. Dr. Pinnock even shares with us a little bit of what it was like to live with Dorothee Soelle for a short time in Germany. You will not want to miss this interview.
As the Project wraps up its final year of funding from the Lilly Endowment Inc., we wanted to make sure our resources are readily accessible to any and all interested in studying the social consequences of theological ideas for the sake of a more just and compassionate world. We thought a podcast might be the most engaging way to do that while still being informative and thought-provoking. Listening to a podcast is more convenient than having to sit down at your computer or look at your phone. You can do it on the go. In short, a podcast lets us bring the Project to you.
