If Christ is Not Risen...

Article by   April 2017
I've always had something of an aversion to the "if Christianity is not true what do you lose" sort of apologetical approach--precisely because Scripture is God's word and because it is perfect in all that God reveals in it. To raise... continue

The Greek Orthodox Answer Man?

Article by   April 2017
The news of Hank Hanegraaff's conversion to the Greek Orthodox faith has--not surprisingly--elicited a variety of responses from individuals online.

Proverbs 8:23, the Eternal Generation of the Son and the History of Reformed Exegesis

Article by   January 2017
The debate that raged last year concerning intertrinitarian relations fueled my desire to go back and revisit Richard Muller's volume on The Triunity of God in his Post-Reformation Reformed Dogmatics (a volume that I cannot commend strongly enough). In doing so, I... continue
