Two Great Societies: Jonathan Edwards and Pastor-theologians

It’s been uncomfortably quiet at this humble little blog.  This is due in large part to a friend of mine who goes by the name “dissertation.”  He’s very needy; I’m hoping soon to part company with him. At any rate, I thought I’d share a bit about some upcoming events that you may be interested [Read More...]

Great Books: Josh Moody’s “No Other Gospel”

Without a doubt, one of the preachers I most look up to and learn from is Josh Moody of College Church in Wheaton, Illinois.  Josh is a humble man with an outsize résumé–BA from Cambridge, PhD from Cambridge (in none other than Jonathan Edwards), missionary to Georgia (the country, not the Dawgs) and Azerbaijan, husband [Read More...]

John Piper, Don Carson, and Transformed Pastors and Scholars

There’s a great deal of interest right now in what some have called the pastor-theologian and theologian-pastor movement.  John Piper and D. A. Carson are two of the more prominent faces of each of these enhanced ministerial vocations.  I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Dustin Neeley of Church Planting for the Rest [Read More...]

Fresh New Books: Trevin Wax on Counterfeit Gospels

I love book dedications, you know, the few words at the very beginning of a text that record in whose honor the manuscript was written.  Books are such an obsession for me that I don’t just love the main body, but the ephemera–the introduction, acknowledgements, dedication, and more. For example, authors typically disclaim that though [Read More...]

Jonathan Edwards on Hell

I recently had the privilege to sit down with Dustin Neeley of Church Planting for the Rest of Us to talk about several topics that will be released on video, including Jonathan Edwards on hell.  The above video covers how Edwards might have responded to the recent controversy regarding Rob Bell’s book Love Wins.  As [Read More...]
