These are my picks from this last week:
– Nick Norelli discusses fasting (and it made me hungry).
– Stan Hauerwas is interviewed about his memoir Hannah’s Child.
– Roger Yadon discusses clergy misconduct in Alaska.
– Mark Stevens continues to compare ourselves amongst ourselves: Witherington or McKnight? Fee or Stott? And round two: Witherington or Fee? Barth and Wright? Fee or Waltke? And the final round: Witherington or Fee or Wright?
– CNN’s John Blake talks about a book written on Obama’s favorite theologian. Guess who that is? (HINT: Not named “Yoder” or “Hauerwas”)
– San Francisco Chronicle blogger Justin Berton will be following Oakland radio personality Harold Camping who claims that the “rapture”/end of the world will occur May 21st, 2011. This should be interesting!
– Phil Sumpter ponders why the early Christians were persecuted.
– Billy Cash reminds us of the “amazing grace” of God in the life of John Newton.
– Andrew Perriman ponders the possibility that Paul was a maker of theatrical scenery as a profession. Also, he asks if the emergent church has a problem with the doctrine of a final judgment. I ask if the emergent church still exists?!
– Frank Turk discusses orthodoxy and the love of God.
– Michael Bird writes on “Justification by Faith and Racism”.
– Gerry Breshears examines the purpose and nature of speaking in tongues.
– Peter Enns discusses the meaning of the imago dei.
– Justin Taylor addresses genitive phrases as relates to the “works of the law” and “faith in/of Christ” debates.
– Jim West is going to resurrect the blog carnival.
