Theologia Communitatis

One of the side purposes of this blog is to gather material towards creating a systematic theology.  I have entitled this collection theologia communitatis because the central binding theme of how I tend to systematize my theology & doctrine is the historical community of God.  Below is the outline of what I am developing, with links to each blog post that is a part of this.  As more is written that pertains to this project, I will update this page.  At present, I have planned for 115 articles; at least several more will need to be added.
