Vivian Hyatt, over at the Gospel Coalition, provides an exposition of the book of Job and exploring “When you cannot live with or without God.”
Bishop Hwa Yung is tired of the “western guilt” he often sees in American missionaries (that is, those who believe their missionary activity is imperialistic, chauvinistic, or patronizing) and calls for a new emphasis on sharing the gospel.
There is a large strain of thought within theological tradition that discusses the “ineffable” (unspeakable, unknowable) aspects of God. Dennis Leap, in The Trumpet, believes this strain of thought is over-emphasized today, arguing that most of what we need to know about God is knowable.
A few weeks back, Evangelical scholars Randall Stephens and Karl Giberson attacked their fellow brethren for demonstrating a culture of anti-intellectualism in a column entitled “The Evangelical Rejection of Reason” published in The New York Times. The column wasn’t particularly good, as it attacked straw men arguments, picked the most extreme examples in Evangelicalism, and posited a very particular left-of-center worldview that presumes all things flowing from academia are “reasonable” (Mark Noll’s The Scandal of the Evangelical Mind is a much better, non-political argument for the anti-intellectualism in Evangelicalism). Thomas S. Kidd, who is a friend of Stephens and helped him with a book project, provides a criticism of the Times editorial.
