Welcome to the Fortner Think Shop!

In my posts I make an effort to draw relevant theological meaning from exploring biblical texts in conjunction with contemporary cultural and existential concerns. As a consequence, I attempt to shine light on the nature and function of Scripture, biblical and philosophical hermeneutics, aesthetics, and ethics.

As we shall see, one of the most remarkable (and disconcerting) dynamics that emerges from Scripture is its capacity to transcend idiosyncratic contexts (then and now) in order to perform personal, social, and cultural critique (then and now) in the service of the present and coming Reign of God.
