Remembering the Future
A Collection of Essays, Interviews, and Poetry at the Intersection of Theology and Culture: The Other Journal 2004-2007
Imprint: Cascade Books
"The Other Journal is intelligent, creative, wide-ranging, and thoughtful. It explores text, soul, and culture in ways that will do you good."
--Brian McLaren, pastor, speaker, and author of several books, including most recently Finding Our Way Again (2008)
"Explorations among theology, culture, and politics are all the rage and subject to trendy, superficial, and predictable conversations. The Other Journal bucks this trend, offering substantive theological engagement that is often surprising but always illuminating. It surprises because it breaks down old walls of division. It is illuminating because it points in a direction that affirms Christian faithfulness with a genuine generosity. It is always worth reading."
--D. Stephen Long, Professor of Systematic Theology at Marquette University and author of Theology and Culture: A Guide to the Discussion (Cascade, 2008)
"Other online and print resources explore the connection between theology and culture, but two things make The Other Journal stand apart. First, The Other Journal is more than just popular, but engages the best of cutting-edge academic theology and theologians. Second, no one seems to have more fun with theology than The Other Journal. The Other Journal is always an invigorating read."
--William T. Cavanaugh, Associate Professor of Theology at St. Thomas University and author of Being Consumed: Economics and Christian Desire (2008)
"Recovering the classic sense of theology as a form of wisdom meant to aid the faithful in their love of God and neighbor, The Other Journal brings together some of the best contemporary theological insight on a broad range of disciplines and arts, issues and events, all for the sake of enhancing Christian engagement with the world and cultures of the twenty-first century. When I am asked about exciting developments in the North American church today, The Other Journal and the folks behind it are near the top of that list. It is a remarkable and remarkably hopeful achievement, from which I constantly learn, am frequently inspired, and always challenged."
--Daniel M. Bell, Jr., Associate Professor of Theological Ethics at Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary and author of Liberation Theology After the End of History (2001)
"The Other Journal sets itself apart among online journals with its orthodox and edgy Christian perspective that is engaged with contemporary culture, theology, art, and politics. If you want to read interesting articles, written for an educated, lay audience, by the leading thinkers in their fields, I recommend putting The Other Journal at the top of your list of bookmarks and checking it regularly."
--Pamela D. H. Cochran, Lecturer in American Religious History in the Department of Religious Studies at the University of Virginia, Faculty Fellow of the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture, and author of Evangelical Feminism: A History
