Pastor’s Bookshelf: Pastorals

posted by Scot McKnight

When it comes to the Pastoral epistles of 1-2 Timothy and Titus, there is such an abundance of good commentaries that one might say it is is ridiculous. I’m not sure why there are so many top notch, career-shaped commentaries […]

Pastor’s Bookshelf: 1-2 Thessalonians

posted by Scot McKnight

This week’s version of Pastor’s Bookshelf is commentaries on 1 and 2 Thessalonians. Because it’s my old stand-by, I turn first to F.F. Bruce, 1 & 2 Thessalonians (Word Biblical Commentary) (Vol. 45) but there are two recent commentaries that […]

posted by Scot McKnight

I’m not keeping up with this commentary list, spending too much of my time doing what Paul seems to be doing to the left, but here goes on Philippians. The first commentary I consult on Philippians is Gordon Fee, and […]

A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.)
