Union Mania!

Article by   November 2011
As a supplement to Paul Levy's notice about Dr. Letham's book on union with Christ, readers of Ref21 might be interested in the audio of a fall conference held recently at Calvary Church of Amwell in Ringoes, New Jersey, called... continue

Modern Debate Over Ancient Texts

Article by   October 2011
[Editor's Note: This is the first post Rev. Wynne wrote in response to Dr. Evans, which was inadvertently removed last week. We repost it here in its entirety.] Dr. Evans has recently graced this forum with some thought provoking comments... continue

ANE in an AC World

Article by   October 2011
I want to thank Dr. Evans for his extended and thoughtful response to my recent post on Scripture and the ancient Near East. In that post, I expressed my concern that his appeals to ANE data for reading Genesis 1... continue

Home Repair and Hermeneutics (Part 3)

Article by   September 2011
In a previous post (and here), I noted how sophisticated, Reformed evangelicals are both disclaiming the arrogance of Enlightenment rationalism and skirting the bottomless pit of postmodern relativism, contending that total human objectivity is an illusion and postmodernism is intellectual quicksand.... continue

Home Repair and Hermeneutics (Part 2)

Inerrancy From the Resurrection

Article by   February 2011
In light of Prof. von Hoffman's stunning (but all too familiar) revisionist historiography, I thought it might be helpful to highlight an argument for the inerrancy of Scripture that I had not heard until Warfield--who else?--brought it to my attention:"[Jesus']... continue

Over the Hedges and Byways

Article by   December 2010
