Hospitality Mat


The Theology Studio provides a forum for engaging voices and movements

in the discipline of theology that seek to

serve the church,

engage tradition,

resist commodification, and

reclaim the primacy of the good, the true, and the beautiful. 

Above all, we endeavor to explore the theological, philosophical, moral, and political significance of Thomas Aquinas' dictum:

Gratia non tollit naturam sed perficitgrace does not destroy nature but perfects it.


To that end, we've put together a library, posted interviews, profiled scholars in the field, and are podcasting about life in theology.  You can listen to our podcasts here, or you can download them from iTunes. Questions, comments?  Email anthony[at]

So Long, and Thanks for All the (Metaphorical, Theological) Fish

It’s been a few months of silence here at Theology Studio, and we humans now know enough about this mysterious ether called The Interwebs to equate silence with the end.  In our case, it’s been a long and careful decision to let the Studio go, and so I thought I’d post one last time and let you, our erstwhile faithful readership, in on the deliberations.

Dogmatic Somnambulance


By Anthony D. Baker

A coming issue of The Living Church is going to print my review of David Kelsey's mammoth theological anthropology, Eccentric Existence.  I've pasted in below a couple of the middle paragraphs, in which I attempt to situate his project in the world constructive theological texts.  I'd love feedback, here or on Facebook or Twitter.

The Music of Faith: Thoughts on Theology and Religion

By Anthony D. Baker

I once wrote that the difference between theology and religious studies was like the difference between two characters in the film The Red Violin who stand, awestruck, staring at a one-of-a-kind Stradivarius.  One of them is obsessed with getting alone with it so he can play it.  The other wants to “take it apart and see how it works.”
