You know you’ve read a few too many books, and you’ve sat through a few too many talks on nanotechnology and agrarian societies and antique furniture, and…well, this is just embarrassing, but I found myself writing “very Pagittian” in the margins of an article by J. Denny Weaver on Christology. I feel bad, like I should have previously written something like “very Jonesian” or “very Jones’ian” or “very Jones’sian” – but for the life of me, I can’t figure out what to do with the last name of Tony Jones (you see, I even gramatically-maneuvered that sentence, so I wouldn’t have to try and figure out how to make Tony’s last name possessive…).
At any rate, I suppose the first person I should have done this with is McLaren – but how would that work: “very McLarenian.”
But the quote is still good, and I still think it does sound like something Doug Pagitt would say. So, maybe in addition to Doug being linked to a feminist Catholic theologian, maybe now Doug has some connections with an Anabaptist theologian now as well.
