A Couple of Interesting Books

This book is incredibly important to biblical studies today, and has now (finally!) been reprinted. This book is important for the study of Alvin Plantinga’s thought.

    The first is essentially Morris’s doctoral dissertation and has never been refuted. Dr. Kim at Fuller Seminary is right in Morris’s line with his outstanding recent work on this topic. These works bear the most careful scrutiny in this age in which the Emergents and others are playing fast and loose with penal substitution.

    I couldn’t agree more with you on this point- but what about John Armstrong’s back-slapping endorsement of Brian McLaren-who John announced was a prophetic voice crying in the wilderness? Mc Laren , as you know,has been outspoken in his views on the subject and they aren’t remotely along the same lines as Morris or Kim . Then we have the well known case of bishop NT Wright celebrating Steve Chalk’s ‘scholarship’ for a book that not only denounced penal substitution, but doesn’t deserve to be mention in the same breath as Morris in terms of genuine scholarship. Your opinion?

    Sorry, Gary. I’m afraid I won’t bite. John affirms penal substitution and he breathes a spirit of catholicity and longs for unity of the visible church.

    Unlike many of the TR’s that throw rocks at him.

    Lately it has been John doing all the rock throwing. You can get a quick take on this by visiting Ron Gleason’s blog as well as my post here on Green Baggins, ‘Save Our Seminary?’

    I’m sorry to ask this here, but my techno-moronic status demands it.
    Can you e-mail me off list so that I can ask you some questions?
    Thanks so much!
