Feminist Revolution and Happiness?

posted by Scot McKnight

Did you see this piece in The NY Times? Any thoughts? Feminists and traditionalists should be able to agree, for instance, that the structures of American society don’t make enough allowances for the particular challenges of motherhood. We can squabble […]

Justification and New Perspective 12

posted by Scot McKnight

The issue in the debate about the new perspective is how best to read the apostle Paul’s theology in its historical context, and one of the more important debates is how to read Galatians … and we finish the 5th […]

Pastor’s Bookshelf: Galatians

posted by Scot McKnight

Galatians was the first book I studied when, as a high schooler, a claim on my life was experienced. I tell more of this story in the opening to my own commentary on Galatians (Galatians (The NIV Application Commentary) ), […]

A Brother’s Wisdom 60

posted by Scot McKnight

James 3:17-18 can be said to define Jesus. Notice these words: But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in […]

A Hole in the Gospel

Richard Stearns is the President of World Vision. When the President of World Vision speaks, people listen. When the same person writes, people read. On our trip to South Africa I saw a man sitting in the middle of the […]

The Power of “With” 7

Andrew Marin’s life is devoted to ministry with and to the GLBT community, and his approach to them is one of love, and his hope is to elevate the conversation. In the 7th chp of Love Is an Orientation: Elevating […]

South Africa #3

Americans of my vintage read Alan Paton’s Cry, the Beloved Country in our school days. That book’s protest was particularly important during the 1960s and 70s in the days of the civil rights movement. At the heart of Paton’s novel […]

A Brother’s Wisdom 59

posted by Scot McKnight

Wisdom does not hang out with divisiveness. Wisdom can find its way into disagreements, but it will pursue the way of peace so it avoids being schismatic and divisive in style. Notice how James puts this in James 3:14-16: But […]

The Bible and Authority (RJS)

A few years ago NT Wright published a short book on the authority of scripture: The Last Word: Scripture and the Authority of God–Getting Beyond the Bible Wars. Scot posted on this book when both the book and his blog […]

Justification and New Perspective 11

A Brother’s Wisdom 58

posted by Scot McKnight

Genuine wisdom manifests itself in living. Wisdom is not the same as “knowledge,” with the second term more tied to “information” and “mastery of facts.” Wisdom transcends knowledge as worship transcends music. Notice how James shows the importance of living […]

Faith and the Prospect of Death

I hope the title to this post didn’t scare you off because I want to address a serious topic: how we face death. But we can address this from a variety of angles — like Christian hope or the medical, […]

The Power of “With” 6

The Bible and Knowledge 5 – Inspiration & Incarnation (RJS)

A Brother’s Wisdom 55

I learned as a child this little ditty: “Sticks and stones may break my bones,but names will never hurt me.” The intent was good — to deflect unkind words. The truthfulness of the ditty, however, questionable. What is said can […]

Justification and New Perspective 8

We are working our way through Tom Wright’s new book, Justification: God’s Plan & Paul’s Vision. The book purports to be a response to John Piper’s The Future of Justification, but it is far more than that: it is a […]

Kingdom Gospel 6

So far so good: kingdom means community formation through commitment to Jesus. That community brings justice and it ends every form of oppression. Jesus’ kingdom vision will mean a total spiritual and social make-over for Israel. With everything now in […]

A Brother’s Wisdom 54

The Bible and Knowledge 4 (RJS)

Attentive readings of this account reveal that Jesus had the same solution and saw the same problems seen by Mary, Zechariah, and John the Baptist: injustices everywhere. And he had the same solution: repent and start living together as God’s […]

A Brother’s Wisdom 53

James 3:1 begins a new section. There are a variety of proposals of where the section ends in James, but our view is that it ends at 4:12. Some see the entire section to be a mixed bag of exhortations […]

Kingdom Gospel 1
