John Cobb & Friends Gathering: Jonathan Foster

October 25, 2022 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm PDT

Topic: Theology of Consent: Mimetic Theory in an Open and Relational Universe

Presenter(s): Jonathan Foster

Dr. Foster is the first to graduate under Thomas Jay Oord’s supervision in the doctoral program in Open and Relational Theology at Northwind Theological Seminary. His doctoral dissertation, Theology of Consent: Mimetic Theory in an Open and Relational Universe, is being published this month by SacraSage Press. Jonathan will be discussing the book, its context, and the interesting overtones emanating from René Girard’s mimetic theory and open and relational theology. Tom Oord affirms, “Foster’s creative ruminations break new ground and inspire transformation.” To find out more about Jonathan see jonathanfosteronline.com. To see other books this best-selling author has written see his author page on Amazon. For a basic introduction to Rene Girard, see this video, this simple overview, or this book.
