CPS Student Seminar: Bradford McCall

April 24 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm PDT

“Necessary, Kenotically-donated, & Self-giving Love”


Bradford McCall argues for a notion of love that is necessarily kenotically-donated, self-giving, creative, and uncontrolling. In so doing, he uses several of Thomas Jay Oord’s texts as a launching point, and will aim at substantiating that this necessary, kenotically-donated, self-giving, creative, and uncontrolling love is fundamentally an empowerment of the other and allows for the interactivity of matter and the godhead, since it is principally pneumatologically derived by an imbibification of primal, undifferentiated matter with the Spirit of God. As McCall argues, the utmost expression of love is the utmost gift of the self.
