Welcome to John Carlin's TheologyTable.com. The purpose of this site is to explore a variety of lecture topics for intellectual consumption. These lectures are an attempt to translate the works of scholars into ordinary language. The goal is to provide a brief “in-depth” look into various aspects of the Christian Faith.
Initially these lectures were designed to be presented in “convert classes”, provided for those who were considering entry into the Catholic Church. As time passed the scope was expanded to cover topics of current interest such as: abortion, just war theory, common ground for morality, evolution, etc.
For the sake of simplicity, direct quotes are held to a minimum and footnotes are excluded. Authors are often cited without direct reference to their original document. This non-scholarly approach was used in an attempt to keep the lectures as understandable as possible.
Any and all comments or corrections are welcomed, as well as any questions.
