James Baird speaks with Cory Brock and Nathaniel Gray Sutanto about Friedrich Schleiermacher’s philosophical influences and their effect upon his theology. Brock and Sutanto are both PhD candidates at the University of Edinburgh, studying the theology of Herman Bavinck under Dr. James Eglinton. Cory Brock is writing a thesis on Bavinck’s appropriation of Schleiermacher. Gray Sutanto is writing on Bavinck’s theological epistemology. Together, they have co-authored an article titled, “Herman Bavinck’s Reformed Eclecticism: On Catholicity, Consciousness, and Theological Epistemology” forthcoming in The Scottish Journal of Theology.
