Nominalism, Realism, and Paradox: A Dialogue with Dr. Mark Mattes- Part 1.
Dr. Mark Mattes is an ELCA theologian whom I had occasion to get to know a bit while writing my dissertation on Forde. Though I do not agree with him on every subject, I appreciate him as a prophetic voice over against the present revolt against orthodox Lutheranism in ELCA. Recently we have an e-mail dialogue over the question of ontology in the interpretation of Luther. He suggested I post part of it on my blog. I have edited into the form of a dialogue. This is part 1, I will be posting part 2 in the next few days.
