That Music You Hear: Rhodes

The music you hear on this week’s podcast (in and out, not the segment bumpers) is by Daniel Whittington’s new band, Rhodes. Their CD, Half a Mind to Stay is available at CD baby and I would encourage all of the IM audience to check it out. Samples are available at their myspace page. The […]

Tim Hardaway and the Sin We Love To Hate

UPDATE: Michael Medved regularly reminds me of the difference Jesus makes in how I look at a cultural issue and how a Jewish conservative looks at the same issue. Law by Moses. Grace and Truth by Jesus. “You know, I hate gay people, so I let it be known. I don’t like gay people and […]

Evangelical Anxieties 6: Culture

Christians always live in a culture. Sometimes that culture has been, in some way, a “Christian” culture. In most instances, Christians have existed in a culture that did not share an appreciation or endorsement of their worldview. Determining how to live in culture, and to what extent that culture will influence us, has always been […]

We Need Both

Here’s a thought I never had before, and maybe it will bring a bit of clarity to this debate over what I’ve written about the Bible. Cent’s good pastor, Tad Thompson, points out a typical conservative SBC criticism of Barth….or to be more precise, what SBC liberals did with a Barthian turn of theology. He […]

Trying to teach my classes on Valentine’s Day; Friends on the journey; What traditional musicians can do; A bit o’ laughter.

Chris Tilling on Inerrancy

Chris is one of the best young theological bloggers out there, and his “Inerrancy” series (which is not all that recent) is outstanding. Chris says that an inductive reading of scripture reveals that inerrancy is not the Bible’s own position. The last post in the series is a podcast by Chris suggesting a way forward. […]

Mark Devine on Karl Barth

In 2001, Southern Seminary Ph.d and Midwestern Seminary theology professor Mark Devine delivered a paper to ETS on evangelicals and Karl Barth. The article is found here, or in pdf from the same site. At the Fide-o watchblog, I’ve been accused of being a liberal heretic like Karl Barth. Among the comments from Scott Hill […]

In the Study: Christianity For Beginners (7 Sermons)

In The Study posts examine actual sermons I preach. These are primarily, chapel messages, preached to approximately 450 students/staff from all over the world. My goal is to provide models of evangelistic, apologetic proclamation to those who might be engaged in similar ministry. Every year I do a sermon series with the purpose of laying […]

C.S. Lewis and Inerrancy

This post reprints part of an article that first appeared in the Christian Research Journal, volume 27, number 4 (2004). It is an assessment of Lewis’s strengths and weaknesses as an apologist and theologian. Remember that Lewis was a professor of English Literature at Oxford and Cambridge his entire career. This article is footnoted and […]

Evangelical Anxieties 5: The End of the World

There’s not a lot that I like about the Appalachian mountain version of Christianity that surrounds me here in southeastern Kentucky, but at the top of a short list is their attitude toward the end of the world. They aren’t afraid of it. They have a good idea what’s going to go on. They believe […]
