“Real Marriage” by Mark Driscoll: review xi-xiv Preface and Introduction

preaching

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons Ok, so I read four pages of Real Marriage this morning. There’s eleven chapters, so with that plus covering the preface and introduction today, I’m going to try to wrap this up in three months and avoid as much of the “multiple weeks dedicated to one chapter” thing that happened a few times with Captivating. I don’t think you or I could handle it. Like Fascinating Womanhood and Captivating, Real Marriage will inevitably have statements that I agree with, mostly because they’re common sense.

Now she addresses an important question, because she has put her readers in a bit of a dilemma.Whom Do I Obey?  What if your husband tells you to go to work and leave your children at day care or with a baby-sitter, in conflict with God’s command for you t … [Read more...]

Apostate: John Locke (Chapter 5)

Apostatevideo

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open Ground As a warning, the writing in this chapter is confusing; it fails to clarify terms and positions, and it is hard to pinpoint what he is trying to say. I will try to directly quote and interpret to the best of my ability. Please re-interpret or add commentary.John Locke studied and tutored at Oxford University. There he drank deeply from the wells of humanism which had originated in the Renaissance of Greek and Roman philosophies. In my first review, I stated that good philosophical writing defines terms. In this section, we can easily see why defining humanism is so important. When a person says he or she is a humanist in the 21st … [Read more...]
