Sophocles, Baptist Pietist

10/18/11 – Kyle Roberts, another of my colleagues up at Bethel Seminary (and one of the contributors to our Pietist Impulse book), will be part of a panel discussion of Sophocles’ Antigone (adapted as Burial at Thebes) after it is performed tonight at Minneapolis’ famous Guthrie Theater. The curtain goes up in just over two hours, but even if you can’t be there tonight, it’s worth reading Kyle’s pre-panel blog post: on the insight that Bethel’s “baptist pietist” tradition can offer in light of Sophocles’ questions about patriotism, justice, law, love, and eschatology.
