The Character of Theology

On February 9th John Franke will be visiting Pittsburgh Theological Seminary.  That's a little more than a month away and I was thinking it might be helpful if a few people undertook a reading of his newest book, "The Character of Theology".  I've read it once and am now reading a book that he wrote before that with Stanley Grenz, Beyond Foundationalism.  While both books are good (so far I prefer Beyond Foundationalism actually) The Character of Theology is more recent and is shorter.  (I should add, I think I like Beyond Foundationalism better because I've read The Character of Theology and simply have a better understanding of what Franke and Grenz are talking about).

Anyway, what I am wondering is two fold 1) Is anyone interesting in reading The Character of Theology before the 9th?  Its only 200 pages and it’s a fast read: I read about 100 pages in two days without much effort.  2) Would anyone be interested in having me write a series of blog entries that summarize Franke's arguments from The Character of Theology?

I'd like to read both books, but probably won't have time before February. You should summarize some of his book here on your blog.

Summarizing would be great. I'm going to try to read Beyond Foundationalism before February in the meantime.
