5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Blog I Read April 6, 2011
Richard Beck is a well-respected and loved professor of psychology at Abilene Christian University in Texas, and he keeps this very popular blog, Experimental Theology. It's the best blog that I read.

Beck's interests are pretty wide-ranging, though his focus is most typically on the intersections between Christian theology and psychology. Some of his heavier topics include universalism, what Freud has to teach Christianity, the Summer and Winter experiences of faith, the influence of sociomoral disgust on the life of the church, and many others. He's composed long series devoted to exploring the influence of such figures as Bonhoeffer, Teilhard de Chardin, Rine Girard, George MacDonald, and (most prominently) William James. Not every subject he covers, though, is so weighty. He additionally has series of reflections on such popular subjects as the theology of Calvin & Hobbes and Peanuts, the spiritual significance of particular holidays, and Facebook's influence on the church.

Some of this may not sound like reading for the non-academic/non-specialist, but it is. Beck is a wonderful educator and communicator, and he's written the blog for intelligent people with all levels of training and who hold many different perspectives. His tone is conversational and humorous. He is sometimes provocative (though I usually tend to find myself seeing things as he sees them) but is always, always intriguing, insightful, and compassionate. I really think that he's one of today's most important Christian thinkers who could be read for many generations to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best blog on theology available. April 5, 2011
Dr. Richard Beck's blog, Experimental Theology, is funny, thoughtful, and deeply insightful. Tying together threads from politics, theology, art, and psychology, Dr. Beck offers his readers a wide range of material, yet blends the diverse subjects together in a masterful way. Charming, witty, provocative, and honest, his posts touch on subjects often neglected in more traditional Christian circles.

Dr. Beck generally averages 3-4 posts per week, more often than not causing the reader to laugh, think, and question themselves and their beliefs in turn. If you're looking for a honest and engaging guide through some of the thorny and problematic issues in contemporary Christianity, this is a blog you'll want to follow.

4.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work with the Kindle app for iphone November 14, 2011
By Rachel
Just for the record, Experimental Theology is my favorite blog. I was so excited to subscribe to the blog and have a Kindle app on my iphone so it would be accessible during my busy day. But, unfortunately, I soon discovered that blogs and magazine subscriptions aren't available on Kindle apps for iphone/ipad, probably because Apple wants a bite out of whatever we read on their devices (capitalism at its finest, something this blog actually discusses). So...since I don't haul my kindle everywhere with me, I unsubcribed and will continue reading for free on my laptop.
