David Michael Gregg

Theologian, pursuing a greater intercourse between theology, anthropology, and philosophy.

I adamantly hold to a position of 'mere Christianity'. I value simple trust, listening to the Spirit, obedience, and character formation, over intelligence, rational knowledge, and academic education.

My chief interests theologically lie in metatheology (theological method, theological epistemology, epistemological ethics), ethics, spiritual and ethical development, spiritual disciplines, theology proper (esp. the character of God), the Priesthood of All Believers, theological ontology, pneumatology, and apocatastasis. Various psychological and philosophical chief interests include infinity & finiteness, death, Existentialism, terror management theory, sexual psychology, metacognition, epistemology, imagination, narrative, example, culture, psychopathy, objectification, theory of mind, empathy, and the vampiric power of social entities (think 'principalities and powers'), et al.

My influences are George MacDonald, Arthur C. McGill, Simone Weil, Marcus Aurelius, Nikolai Berdyaev, Leo Tolstoy, Richard Beck, Søren Kierkegaard, Ernest Becker, Wayne Jacobsen, Paul K. Moser, C.S. Lewis, Andrew Murray, Quakerism, the Anabaptist tradition generally, et al. I did my thesis on psychological manipulation methods of the cults.
