Terry Wandtke: Watchmen and Ubermensch, Session Two

This is the second part of Terry Wandtke’s seminar track from Cornerstone 2009.

 

Alan Moore’s Watchmen offered a self-reflective indictment of hitherto unquestioned superhero fundamentals: power and reckless violence — paving the way, ironically, for a wave of even more nihilistic comic book heroes. This seminar explores this most interesting conversation in contemporary comics and graphic novels, examining larger questions implicit in super powers.

Soong-Chan Rah: A Theology of Suffering & Celebration, Session One

This is the first part of Soong-Chan Rah’s seminar track from Cornerstone 2009.

 

The theology of history’s “haves” is inevitably shaped by interests vested in affirming and maintaining privilege – meanwhile creating ever more distance from history’s “have-nots.” This seminar wrestles with our notions of power and privilege as related to our notion of Christ, seeking to listen to the Gospel as it meets us at the intersection of celebration and suffering.
