  1. Hey man, read that copy of The Resurrection of the Son of God over the next couple of days and let me know what you think. 😀

    Believe it or not the Polhill book was one of my textbooks at Carson-Newman. It’s a strong book, best thing I received at CN as a matter of fact. Of course the other text book for the class was so liberal I felt like I needed a shower after I read it…

  2. Sure! I’ll have a review up by tomorrow!

  3. Jeremy, you inspire me! Happy reading!

  4. Once again I have one of the books you just got–this time Bainton’s.
    It’s an interesting look at the Reformation that looks beyond Luther & Calvin–for that reason alone it well worth reading.

    It would be excellent reading for those who misrepresent the Reformation as a Luther/Calvin lovefest.

  5. Wright on Marcus Borg:

    ““Marcus Borg really does not believe Jesus Christ was bodily raised from the dead. But I know Marcus well: he loves Jesus and believes in him passionately. The philosophical and cultural world he has lived in has made it very, very difficult for him to believe in the bodily resurrection. I actually think that’s a major problem and it affects most of whatever else he does, and I think that it means he has all sorts of flaws as a teacher, but I don’t want to say he isn’t a Christian.””

    I wonder if the book clears any of this up?

  6. “but I don’t want to say he isn’t a Christian”

    But he denies in the resurrection!
    How can he really be a true Christian. The Bible itself declares this.

    Check out I Cor 15 & 2 John 1–Yes some may say the I Cor passage doesn’t say anything about bodily resurrection, but compare the passages and check the context and look at all of scripture.
