I am thrilled that this is the post I am sharing with you on my sixth blog anniversary (it was the 16th April 2003 when this journey began!)Liam and I have spoken on the phone before, and from the first call I immediately knew that he was a real defender of the gospel.

Liam Goligher on Jonah 3

There are two miracles. One is God using Jonah. The second is God working in the city. Jonah has already seen God at work in saving himself, and the sailors have also been saved. Tomorrow we will see him at work in Jonah himself.There is a “giant test motive” everything in this book is on a grand scale. Huge task. The fear was great. The storm was overwelming and the city was humungous. The repentance was total. Its beyond our comprehension. It communicates that our sin is big, God’s mercy is bi … [Read more...]

Jonah 2 By Liam Goligher

At the beginning of his talk Liam confessed to his love of 24, which I share. At risk of making him as pleased as punch, I can report that people twittering from the event reckon he actually looks a bit like Jack Bauer! As soon as Jonah hit the water, the storm ended, and the sailors were safe. His God must be powerful, so they worshipped him. We see God’s salvation in operation in action in Jonah’s life.Salvation of JonahIntroduction of the big fish, and mentioned in the conclusion. In between t … [Read more...]

Liam Goligher on Jonah 1

We decided to go to the second Bible reading this morning so we could catch at least some of the Formula One. As it started at 11-30am we were probably the only people in the world glad that the race got suspended when it did! (Though we only got to hear that the race was definitely stopped an Button had won by text which arrived on my phone while the notices were begin given!)There was an eager sense of anticipation in the room to listen to God’s word through Liam, who is a good friend of the E … [Read more...]

INTERVIEW – Liam Goligher on the Crisis in Evangelicalism, Part Three

In the first post of my interview with Liam Goligher we focused on the distinctives on which he and I differ. In the second post we discussed some important challenges facing the church today. We now turn to an issue which is never far from my blog — the atonement.Perhaps because it is most topical right now, and perhaps because he has already written a popular book on the subject (The Jesus Gospel), the atonement seemed to arouse the most passion in Liam as we spoke. Liam’s book should, in my vi … [Read more...]

INTERVIEW – Liam Goligher on the Crisis in Evangelicalism, Part Two

In the first post of this interview with Liam Goligher we focused on the distinctives between our backgrounds. In this post we discuss important doctrinal challenges facing the church today which should prompt confessing evangelicals like Liam and myself to stand together.

He reported receiving strong criticism from some prominent evangelicals over his stand on some of the issues we will … [Read more...]

Preach the Word….

I had a a great day today, which was worthwhile even if to just be reminded of some great quotes, like "'To me, the work of preaching is the highest and most glorious calling to which anyone can be called.' Dr. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones"AND preaching is 'Logic on Fire' (Again from The Doctor)One of my great priviledges in life was to know a man called Henry Tyler who was one of the founding fathers of the newfrontiers group of churches of which I am a part. He would have been delighted by … [Read more...]
