Bob Robinson, over at Vanguard, has a very nice introduction to how evangelicals are responding to postmodernism. It is a preface in a series he is doing. The discussion is too important to drop. Read more

This is the second post by Brad Boydston and me on Pagitt’s new book on preaching. Scot: Doug Pagitt’s new book, Preaching Re-imagined, suggests that we compare two kinds of preaching: “speaching” and “progressional dialogue.” He sees big problems with the former, and great potential in the latter.

Jesus told his missional Apostles not to take money, not to carry a beggar’s bag, and not even to take extra clothing and shoes — and then adds they are not to take a staff (probably a protective device). There have been many interpretations of Jesus’ strong directions to the Apostles on what provisions on their missional journey. (more…) Read more

A former colleague of mine, whose name shall go unmentioned here, was notorious for off-the-wall comments in class. (Suggested names will be permitted, and if enough get it right I’ll disclose the person’s name). One student of his decided to begin recording them.

Three major books on the resurrection have come out in the last few years, and each of them takes us well beyond the age-old debates and evidence that are continually re-hashed and offered up as boilerplate apologetics. N.T. Wright’s The Resurrection of the Son of God, Alan Segal’s Life after Death, and now the extensively-documented, wide-ranging, and always provocative Resurrecting Jesus by Dale Allison. We need a conference on the resurrection to put all this together. Read more

One of those sayings with a funny name, “The Prohibition of Foreign Missions by Jesus,” comes from Matthew 10:5-6. Jesus here tells his followers to concentrate on the “lost sheep” of the house of Israel and not go off to the ways of the Gentiles or to a city of the Samaritans. Jesus’ mission was itself shaped by the same (Matthew 15:24) — but it began to spill over to the Gentiles. This saying, along with what follows, is very… Read more

If you have followed the flap that some have with NT Wright, Jimmy Dunn, EP Sanders and others about the New Perspective of Paul and justification by faith, The Blue Rajah contends Leon Morris was not unlike them well before them! Worth reading. Read more
