I hope the month of September has been welcoming to you. For many it means more reading and writing than it did in August because classes have resumed. Nevertheless, if you find time to read some blogs these may be worth the effort:
– Vernon Grounds has passed away. In case you are beginning to lose track of all the theologians who have passed away here is a list from 2000-2010.
– Mark Stevens doesn’t even know about The Gospel Coalition, Scot McKnight has a question for The Gospel Coalition (T.C. Robinson shares some thoughts on this matter here), and Will Lee says that ‘Together for the Gospel’ is not really together for the gospel (Hint: It may be neo-Fundamentalism!) and he provides some follow-up post here and here.
– Marc Cortez wants to know if he can disagree with you because he doesn’t like you (yes, you, you personally).
– Kim Fabricius says we need to “repent about repenting”.
– Fr. Ted Bobosh continues his series on Orthodoxy here, here, here…
– Roger Olson is a premillenialist.
– Joel Watts has dedicated this week to blogging about “geocentrism”. He is doing this because of a conference on the subject of which he wants to fairly examine the claims. He provides us with a list of Scriptures used to defend the position. He discusses the Scriptural basis for the position. He tells us what the Church Fathers said about it (here and here) as well as some of the Reformers (here). James McGrath notifies us of more discussion on the subject.
– Esteban Vazquez shares the “real value” of learning Greek (with a nod to Moses Silva).
– Bill Mounce asks “What constitutes an accurate translation?“
– Jason Gardner reviews Paul D. Wegner’s Using Old Testament Hebrew in Preaching and Biblical Theology: Introducing the Conversation by Leo G. Perdue, Robert Morgan, and Benjamin D. Sommer.
As always, thanks for the plug. Now I have to check out Olson premil position. 😀
The millenialism stuff is distracting to me. I don’t know if I’ll know until the Second Coming what the “Millenium” is all about. 🙂
Yeah, I know what you mean. Just yesterday I heard a guy talking about Israel in that dispensational sense. It made me cringe. Sometimes I really have to work hard at keeping my scoffs and facial expressions in check. 😀
Me too and I study/work in a school that has historically been very connected to Dispensationalism (though thankfully not as strictly these days as previous years).
Thanks for the link, Brian. By the way, it’s Anwoth, not Anworth. Hey, that’s twice this week my blog name has been misspelled. Curse you, Samuel Rutherford! Why couldn’t you have ministered in Dunbar…it’s so much easier to remember.
My bad, I will fix it!
