Why ‘complementarianism’ matters: reflections occasioned by Carl Trueman

August 25, 2012


Carl Trueman has an excellent blog post on the Reformation21 site, expressing puzzlement at why so many (American, evangelical) parachurch organisations make complementarianism (male-only leadership) a defining point of their platform. He highlights the potential absurdity of this in characteristically sharp and witty fashion, pointing out that the historical divisions that these organisations choose to bridge […]

On writing and being read: Jared Wilson on Fifty Shades…

July 19, 2012


‘When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.’ ‘The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things.’ ‘The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, ‘which is to be master — that’s all.’ (Lewis Carroll, Alice Through […]

British and European theological bloggers

March 27, 2012


A while back I announced a desire to keep a list of British and European theological blogs; several people made helpful suggestions, and I’ve been meaning to construct the list, but, well, life… I have now put all the suggestions I had or received in the blogroll on the right; if you hover a mouse […]

Justice and the gospel: Bruce Longenecker on Paul and the poor.

Joel Willits offers a review of my former colleague Bruce Longenecker’s recent book Remember the Poor: Paul, Poverty, and the Greco-Roman World (Eerdmans) over at Euangelion. I have not yet seen a copy, but Bruce was working in these directions before he left St Andrews for Baylor, and I think I can guess something of […]

British/European theo-bloggers

November 10, 2011


For reasons explained in the previous post, I would like to start to construct a list of British and European blogs with theological content. Nominations are hereby invited. I guess we need to define ‘theological content’. I would go for something like this: ‘a majority of the posts would be interesting to someone, educated to […]

‘Hooded hoardes swarming…’

November 10, 2011


Not quite four years ago, when I began this blog, I put a blogroll in the right gutter; it seemed the thing to do back then. I have been conscious for most of those four years that the blogroll was out of date, but unsure how to reform it. Recently, I deleted some dead links, […]

Mike Higton on Dawkins

February 8, 2008


Over nearly twenty years (I’m feeling old…), my friend Mike Higton has taught me, by precept and example, more about how to do theology than all but two, perhaps three, others. One of the lessons I regret never having quite learned from him, despite seeing it modeled repeatedly in his life, writing and conversation, is […]
