Recommendation: The Myth of Certainty by Daniel Taylor

Many of the books I review here at IM are books that are either sent to me by publishers or recommended by friends I respect. In the case of Daniel Taylor’s The Myth of Certainty, I found the book on my own, and quickly fell in love with every single page. I can’t think of […]

Where’s Jesus?: Thoughts On A Locally Available Christ

Answering the question “Where can you get your Jesus?” is very important. Many of the divisions among Christians are actually a commentary on the relationship of the person of Jesus to various means of “accessing” or “localizing” Jesus. In other words, the question “Where is Jesus?” is an extremely important question and the claim to […]

Witherington on Piper’s Theodicy

Ben Witherington III, professor of New Testament at Asbury Seminary, joins the discussion on John Piper’s I-35 theodicy. Or think for a moment about the Beelzebul controversy in Mark 3. Jesus is accused of being in league with Satan. Now notice how Jesus responds to this charge. He doesn’t say, “I couldn’t do otherwise, because […]

God’s Sovereignty in Lutheranism: An Interview With Josh Strodtbeck (5- Providence in Tragedy)

Here’s the last in our “Lutheran Theology and God’s Sovereignty Series.” I appreciate all the work Josh put into this and the good comments from those of you involved in the discussion. How would Lutheran theology speak about God’s role in a tragedy like the I-35 Bridge collapse? Would you say God ordained it for […]

A Jesus Prayer

After I finished reading The Shack, I wrote out some prayers, and this is part of one. -MS Jesus, you don’t build institutions. You don’t write catechisms. Or Systematic Theologies. Or critiques of someone’s theology or refutations of their catechism. You don’t have a blog. You don’t moderate debates. You are the bread of life […]

Recommendation and Review: The Shack by William P. Young

UPDATE:Tim Challies and I couldn’t disagree more on this review. He really disliked the book, and I – and my family so far- have been deeply moved and helped by it. That’s the way it goes. The emerging church, whatever that is, is producing a body of literature of its own that reflects its particular […]

Five Questions For Roman Catholics

UPDATE: Well, I am going to suppose this post got linked somewhere. Amy? What have you done to me? 🙂 I really appreciate the kindness and all the time represented in the answers. I haven’t read the thread, but have read the MANY emails that I received. I’ll catch up on the thread later. (Internet […]

God’s Sovereignty in Lutheranism: An Interview With Josh Strodtbeck (4- Election and Salvation)

Good to know some reader thinks that after 7 years of basically reformed-leaning blogging, 4 Lutheran posts qualify as somehow unfair treatment of Calvinism. And the main complaint: “cheap shots.” If you could die from irony, we could really thin out the population on the blogosphere. When Josh is teaching, there’s a lot to learn. […]
