Responding Theologically in the Face of Torture

Welp. I am graduating soon and moving on to another program. First it was a Bible college, then a “liberal” seminary, and now on to a Catholic school. It should continue to prove interesting. However, before moving on, required for graduation by most any MA program is a thesis.

If the reader has been paying attention for any length of time to this blog, one would notice that torture has routinely popped up. Well, thats because I have just done my MA thesis on torture. This thesis is available for download in pdf (now that I’ve realized they’ll let you attach pdfs in the new wordpress) and is titled “Responding Theologically in the Face of Torture: Re-Politicizing American Christianity in Light of the Interruptive Jesus.”

I still plan on bringing up parts here and there in a more “bloggable” form, as I have already. This allows comments on each section to be made easier. However, for those of you who want to see the entire argument, in all its theological jargon, here it is.

    Congratulations, David. I just downloaded it and skimmed it, and it looks great. I look forward to reading it more thoroughly when I get some time.

    D. W., Thanks for this and all the best at Marquette! (BTW, there are Jesuits and then there are Jesuit–said the man who has been employed more often by Catholics than his own Baptist tradition.)
