TEDS PhD student Andy Naselli just published his first dissertation with Logos, Let Go and Let God? A Survey and Analysis of Keswick Theology (2010). It is a rich and engaging analysis of Keswick theology that is a genuine contribution to the academic guild. Graced with a foreword by Tom Schreiner, it is worth your attention–and your dollars. Learn more about how to understand Keswick theology through Andy’s scholarly spade-work (interview with Kevin DeYoung here).
This is a deeply moving story on paralyzed former NBA player Rodney Rogers, one-time sixth man of the year. A father of three, Rogers broke his neck while riding dirt bikes. He now merely hopes to walk again. Stuff like this makes one sit up and take life seriously (and pray for people like Rogers). Time is precious; bodies are fragile; others need us.********
Ted Kluck, evangelical provocateur, has just started up a virtual publishing press with a buddy of his, Zach Bartels. I haven’t read their first book, but it looks typically enjoyable and enlightening (Denny Burk liked it). Look for more from Gut Check Press (make sure to check out Ted’s new Hello, I Love You, a looked-for book on adoption by Moody).
Ted is quotable. Here’s a funny line from the story on the press from the Grand Rapids Press:
Bartels and Kluck plan to publish more books through Gut Check Press, though at the moment are accepting manuscripts only from themselves.
“We want to publish books your mom wouldn’t like, that are too edgy for the middle-aged women running publishing, “ said Kluck.
Ted throws his punches hard at times, but he’s a funny dude and an evangelical voice worth hearing out.
