At CBMW, Giving Thanks for 2015’s Increased Financial Provision

It’s scary, learning to ski. You are trained first to snow-plow, which means that you crawl down the mountain. After even a few trips down the slopes, your legs begin to shake. You haven’t mastered speed, and you’re scared of it. You feel very little momentum. Plus, it’s cold out, and you crave hot chocolate, [Read More…]

Why I Wrote “The Grand Design” with a Leading UK Complementarian

It’s time to share something very exciting: in April 2016, I publish The Grand Design: Male and Female He Made Them (Christian Focus) with Gavin Peacock. Why did Gavin and I write this book?

We are seeking to close out the year strong, but to date, we will surpass last year’s financial intake. This is a tremendous blessing and a sign of God’s unmerited kindness. We are [Read More…]

Should Pastors Feel Pressure to Produce Scholarship?

I’ve enjoyed the lively conversation that has emerged over this question: are pastors scholars? Some of the conversation has engaged the book Kevin Vanhoozer and I recently published, The Pastor as Public Theologian: Reclaiming a Lost Vision (Baker Academic, August 2015). In the book, Vanhoozer and I make the case that the pastor is the “organic intellectual” [Read More…]

Why Complementarianism Is Surging: Introducing the 2016 CBMW T4G Pre-Conference

In 1987, Wayne Grudem, John Piper, Dorothy Patterson, and a number of other Christian leaders came together to found the Council on Biblical Manhood & Womanhood. They did so because there was little broad-scale representation of the complementarian viewpoint over against egalitarianism. Fast forward to 2015. CBMW is, by God’s grace, going strong. But there’s [Read More…]
