On Tuesday Night I will be interviewing Dr. Bruce Epperly, author of Process Theology: Embracing Adventure with God and a number of other titles, both from Energion and from other publishers. The title of the show is “A Process Christmas.” If you wonder what that means, join us. If you wonder how that can be, join us. If you just wonder, join us.

I always have a lot of fun interviewing Bruce. He is good at making complex things clear. After all, consider that Process Theology: Embracing Adventure with God is in our Topical Line Drives series. I recall a comment from one of our editors after he reviewed the manuscript. “Are you sure he’s talking about process?” he asked. “I ask because I understood it. I never understand things written by process theologians.”
Yes, he’s talking about process theology, and on Tuesday night he’ll be talking about how his theology impacts the way he thinks about Christmas. We’ll have a fun time and we’ll also hear some controversial things, I’m sure.
This will be the last Tuesday night Hangout from Energion Publications this year. Our next one will be on January 5, 2016. We’re going to change our approach to Tuesday nights just a bit. We’ve been doing our author initial book interviews on these shows, as well as topical discussions. Starting next year that will change. All our Tuesday night shows will be about topics of interest. Most of our guests (not all!) will still be Energion authors, but they will be discussing topics of current interest in the Christian community. In many cases we’ll also schedule two topics in a night, with a half hour discussing each. I will post more details about this over the next few days.
What about author book interviews? We will still have these and they will still be part of our YouTube channel. In addition, we’ll post them here on our News blog. The difference will be that they may occur at different times of the day and on any day of the week. If you want to view them live and ask the authors questions, you’ll need to subscribe to this blog or to our YouTube channel.
This change in scheduling will make sure that we can schedule each new book interview very close to the release date for the book, while at the same time guaranteeing that we can look at key topics of interest each Tuesday night. We think it will be better for everyone.
We have some exciting books in the works for release during 2016. Subscribe to our feed, Like us on Facebook, and keep track of the excitement as we move forward.
