We launched this blog a little over six months ago, and it’s been a wonderful time since then. We have enjoyed the interactions, and we’re thankful for your readership and engagement. We have gone from posting twice a week to nine times—two regular posts, one podcast, and six Sense of the Day posts—every week. Since it’s been more than half a year now, perhaps it’s time for a roundup of some of our more popular content.
Dr. Block graciously allowed me to interview him over dinner last year, and we posted the interview on the blog. It was a pleasure to spend time with him and discuss topics like the Sabbath, commentary writing, the gospel in the Pentateuch, and more.
In what has certainly been one of our most popular and controversial posts, Dr. Longman addresses a five-year-old question about the historicity of Adam. Longman explains why he considers himself to be an evolutionary creationist as he engages with both scientists and theologians on the topic.
In this article, Dr. Gaffin takes an opposing view to Dr. Longman’s on the historicity of Adam. He presents his counterargument, positing that the idea of the historical Adam is necessary to uphold the very work of Christ.
It was a great week when we had two apologists recording courses for Logos Mobile Education. Dr. Oliphint and Dr. Ellis both provided some great insights in this Mobile Ed Podcast, and they shared their stories, including living with Cornelius Van Til and spending time with Francis Schaeffer at L’Abri.
Dr. Allen spent an entire year reading through Karl Barth’s Church Dogmatics, and he has an intimate acquaintance with Barth’s thought and works. In this interview, Allen discusses the importance and historical context of Karl Barth, as well as dialectical theology, revised supralapsarianism, and more.
This is the fourth of five posts that Dr. Gupta wrote for the academic blog. Gupta brings together several must-read books for students of the New Testament, and he talks about the importance and usefulness of each book. Read about volumes from Chris Wright, Richard Bauckham, George Eldon Ladd, and more.
This post features a video from Logos in which Mark Barnes shows how to do textual criticism within Logos Bible Software. Barnes gives you helpful steps to set up your software, and he outlines some important resources you’ll need for the task.
It’s been a great six months, and we’re looking forward to many more. Thank you for your readership!
