On The Trail Of NT Wrong

I have several theories about the identity of NT Wrong. All of them are bunk. I will post them anyway. Be that as it may, in the course of my extensive investigations (= reading NT Wrong’s blog posts from time to time), I have uncovered a few clues that may help us deduce the true [Read More...]

Projecting Hostility

I must admit I am confused by the rants in which Roger Pearse is engaging over on his blog. He began by misconstruing what I said in a blog post of my own. Then, when I repeatedly tried to clarify my meaning (which, to be honest, I don’t think was all that unclear to begin [Read More...]

Revelation vs. 9th Wonders

Tonight’s episode of Heroes presented what one might expect to encounter if one had access to the comic books produced by someone who genuinely could see the future. Precise dialogues depicted, word for word, including even the questioning and skepticism of those who participate in them and don’t think such things are possible. In most [Read More...]

More on SBL’s Alleged Lack Of Friendliness to Evangelicals

In my round-up of SBL blogging, I mentioned the comment that was made by Bill Mounce about SBL, of various organizations he mentioned, being the “least friendly to Evangelicals”. My comment was that there is an irony about this, since there are plenty of not only Evangelicals but conservative Evangelicals in SBL, and they present [Read More...]

Quote of the Day (G. E. Lessing)

If God held all truth in his right hand and in his left the everlasting striving after truth, with the risk that I should always and everlastingly be mistaken, and said to me ‘Choose!’ in humility I would pick the left hand and say, ‘Father grant me that: Absolute truth is for thee alone.’ – [Read More...]

Review of Andreas J. Kostenberger and Scott R. Swain, Father, Son and Spirit: The Trinity and John’s Gospel (New Studies in Biblical Theology 24; Downers Grove: InterVarsity Press, 2008).Since other reviewers have summarized and/or outlined the book, my aim in this review is to engage the content of the book more substantially in detail. “Anachronism [Read More...]
