My latest post for the Andrew Fuller Center for Baptist Studies is titled “Francis Wayland and Richard Fuller: Debating Slavery with Christian Civility.” The post speaks to the famous Wayland-Fuller epistolary debate over slavery, which was published in the 1845 book Domestic Slavery Considered as a Scriptural Institution. My colleague Keith Harper and I co-edited [...]
I recently read Rod Dreher’s new book The Little Way of Ruthie Leming: A Southern Girl, a Small Town, and the Secret of a Good Life (Grand Central, 2013). If you aren’t familiar with him, Dreher is a former journalist and the author of the insightful book Crunchy Cons: The New Conservative Counterculture and Its [...]
If you know much of anything about Jonathan Edwards’s preaching, you know that his most famous sermon is “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God.” The sermon is available in numerous stand-alone print editions, is reprinted in most anthologies of Edwards’s works, and is widely available in audio form on the internet. Pastor and [...]
Several times this week, I’ve mentioned The Jonathan Edwards Center at Yale University. The JEC website is the best place on the internet to begin a study of Edwards’s life and thought. Though the JEC provides numerous helpful resources, by far the most important of which is the free electronic edition of the 26-volume Works [...]
(Note: A couple of weeks ago, I published the following post at Historia Ecclesiastica, the blog of the Andrew Fuller Center for Baptist Studies at Southern Seminary. I haven’t previously published it here at Christian Thought & Tradition.) A good reminder from pastor and Jonathan Edwards scholar Josh Moody: This brings up a more general [...]
In September, our friends at B&H Academic are publishing a book titled The Community of Jesus: A Theology of the Church, edited by Kendall Easley and Christopher Morgan. My SEBTS colleagues Andreas Köstenberger and Bruce Ashford are among the contributors. You can read what the publisher has to say about the book below. Intended for upper division [...]
Follow A few months back, I had the privilege of reading an excellent new book edited by Kyle Strobel and Jamin Goggin titled Reading the Christian Spiritual Classics: A Guide for Evangelicals (IVP Academic, 2013). The book is a collection of essays that serves to introduce evangelical readers to the discipline of reading spiritual classics. The […]
Follow Last week, I attended the annual meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society. While there, I was part of a dinner where a group of scholars, students, and pastors honored my friend Michael Haykin with a festschrift titled The Pure Flame of Devotion: The History of Christian Spirituality (Joshua Press, 2013). Michael is a widely regarded […]
Follow In my latest post at Between the Times, I recommend two books to help caucasian evangelicals in America better understand the present realities and future possibilities of a multiethnic evangelicalism. I hope you find these resources as helpful as I have.
Follow I published a post today at Between the Times titled “Windows on the World: Praying the Great Commission.” I talk a little bit about how the Lord first gave me a burden for global missions. I also recommend a great resource for teaching children to pray for the nations: Windows on the World: When We […]
Follow I have the honor of serving as one of the elders of the First Baptist Church of Durham, North Carolina. In the eight years that my wife Leah and I have been members of the congregation, I have been blessed to become close friends with our church’s senior pastor, Andy Davis. For as long […]
Follow As regular readers of this blog probably know, I am very interested in the life and thought of Andrew Fuller (1754–1815), the famous English Baptist pastor-theologian. If you aren’t familiar with him, you can read the short blog post about him that I wrote for Desiring God several months ago. I am part of […]
Follow I have a confession: I love reading book reviews. When I open a new issue of a scholarly journal, normally the first thing I do is check out the reviews. When I read serious Christian periodicals such as First Things or Renewing Minds or The City, the reviews are often my favorite parts. I am […]
Follow I am currently reading John Jefferson Davis’s recent book Meditation and Communion with God: Contemplating Scripture in an Age of Distraction. It is a creative combination of systematic theology, epistemology, psychology and spirituality. In a chapter on how to read the Bible for meditation, Davis speaks to how Scripture functions when we meditate on […]
Follow Satan is alive and well. One of the ways the enemy wreaks havoc in seminaries and Christian colleges is by causing young men and women to grow personally numb to the spiritual truths they are studying in their classes. We’ve all met seminary graduates who felt like they had to recover something that had […]
Follow My friend Steve Weaver has written a helpful post titled “Are We Entering Golden Age of 17th-Century Baptist Literature?” He mentions eight new or forthcoming works, including both scholarly monographs and popular reprints with semi-scholarly introductions. Publishers include Mercer University Press, Regents Park College Publications, Pickwick, Borderstone and Reformed Baptist Academic Press. Some of […]
