The Old Testament and Universalism

posted by Scot McKnight

Robin Parry’s major focus, in his book The Evangelical Universalist  , is a biblical case for universalism, and that means one eventually has to take a good hard look at the Old Testament. Which he does. After sketching some suggestive Adam-Israel parallels, […]

Evangelism: Jesus Style

posted by Scot McKnight

For a long time I’ve thought we needed a sensitive, historically-nuanced study of how Jesus interacted — at the gospeling level — with his contemporaries. But the book I had in mind couldn’t be in search of the “method” of […]
