“The Naked Theologian” is ordinarily clothed. Online, I’m known as TNT. In the nondigital world, I’m known as Myriam Renaud. I’m currently working on a doctorate in Religious Studies. 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 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 in current events sponsored by the University of Chicago Divinity School’s Martin Marty Center. I contribute columns to The Atlantic, Sightings, and the UU World magazine. I have been featured on Chicago’s Progressive radio station WCPT, taught “Liberal Religion” at Meadville Lombard Theological School, and “World Religions” at Morton College.
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!
