“The Naked Theologian” is ordinarily clothed. In the nondigital world, I’m known as Myriam Renaud. I’m currently working on a doctorate in Religious Thought and Ethics. I try to post regularly, but I sometimes have to put the blogging aside to focus on my ten million other commitments.
Some of my activities: I am Principal Investigator and Project Director of the Global Ethic Project at the Parliament of the World’s Religions. I am also a member of the teaching faculty in the Interfaith Action Master’s Program at Claremont Lincoln University. I recently ended my tenure as Managing Editor of Sightings, an online twice-weekly publication about religion and public life sponsored by the University of Chicago Divinity School’s Martin Marty Center. I have contributed pieces to The Atlantic online, Sightings, Religion Dispatches, and the UU World magazine.
My areas of scholarly interest: beliefs about God, global ethics, Christian thought, Jewish thought, Islamic thought, comparative religion, class issues, wealth and income inequality, and human rights.
I much appreciate your comments to my posts. I’ve sometimes changed my mind because of them and have often reflected further on my views. I monitor other blogs that respond to my postings. Again, fellow bloggers have caused me to think again.
So thanks for reading my posts, thanks for your comments, and thanks for engaging my work in your blogs!
