Welcome to the newest, hippest place in the blogosphere! (we wish)Sincerely, thanks for stopping by. We'd like to take this opportunity to tell you a bit about Adventures in the Archetypes, and why we wanted to put this together.

First off, we are Danny Marriott and Collie Coburn. We've known each other since elementary school in Hesperia, CA, and we have a lot in common. We both play drums, neither of us are very tall, we are pretty nerdy, and we both enjoy theology. Over the past six years, as we've gone to college and then graduate school, we've developed our own theologies, and have found some areas in which we diverged (Collie reads John Wesley, Danny reads John Owens) and others in which we agree (the need for greater charity during theological debate, ministry strategies). Also, we think Chad Smith is a killer drummer.

Anyway, over the last couple of months we have been kicking around the idea of publishing a blog where we, as friends, can discuss our theological stances, agreements and disagreements. Hence, this website. However, we also had a series of goals for this blog, and they are as follows

1. We intend for our theology to be accessible. This ain't dissertation material, we want everyone to be able to interact with it.
2. We want it to be good. It seems obvious, but we intend to put a lot of effort into what we post, and we want it to educate and provoke those who read it.
3. We want it to be charitable. Our camaraderie within the body of Christ trumps our divergences.

So, that's the idea behind this blog. If it sounds intriguing, we would love for you to sign up to follow it, and comment liberally. Most of all, we know that this will be a place where our own ideas will be shaped and tested, and we'd love to have you along for the ride.

Danny and Collie

You guys are awesome! ...and i am excited about this.

Can't wait to see what you theological brainiacs come up with. I think your readers should also know that this friendly rivalry started back when you competed in the AWANA Bible Quiz. It's exciting to see you utilizing your gifts and talents to help this generation know God in a deeper way. Keep up the great work!

Oh the AWANS Bible quiz! I was actually wondering if that would come up.

Theology expressed in cyberspace - could be amazing, could be scary, could be both. I'll be reading. Oh, and by the way, Chad Smith is good, but Vinnie Colaiuta is my guy.

Uncle Kimball, I totally respect that.
