I mentioned before that our book of the month feature wasn’t necessarily going to be a monthly feature. I wasn’t lying. We’ll just post about great books we’ve read whenever we feel like passing them on to you. This “month” I want to recommend When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate...
I ended my last post with the bold assertion that Calvin got Paul’s understanding of salvation right. The claim is somewhat ridiculous; no single interpreter has captured the full contours of Paul’s (or any other biblical writer’s) theology. So let me explain what I mean. After studying Paul’s’ understanding of...
In the last post, I mentioned that I’m finishing up a book titled Paul and Judaism Revisited, which compares Paul’s understanding of salvation with the Dead Sea Scrolls. So I thought I’d back up a bit and give a layperson’s overview to two things: (1) what are the Dead Sea...
For the last couple of weeks, I’ve taken a bit of a hiatus from blogging, but I wanted to let you all know that I’m still alive and am back to blogging. I took a break because I’ve been trying to finish a book I’ve been working on for...

Discipleship is an essential function of the church. It's the mission that Jesus left us with when He raised from the dead and ascended to the Father: "Go into all the world and make disciples." As disciples of Jesus, an important part of our job description is being disciple-makers. But...
One of my heroes of the faith is a man by the name of Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965), who is a fitting example of the stuff I’ve been writing about over the past few posts. Schweitzer was a German theologian and missionary who exemplifies having a passion for both heart...
Shortly after Christ transformed my life at age 19 (I’m 35 now), I gained a growing desire to pursue ministry. I didn’t even know what that meant, but I loved to study the Bible and think through theological issues. So hey, if I can get paid for it, that’d...
