Steve Hallam on the Importance of Syriac

Steve Hallam on the Importance of Syriac

There are definitely many reasons to learn Syriac from a Biblical Studies perspective, and I would encourage anyone interested in deepening their understanding of both the Bible and Church History to dive right in. Also, I think anyone with a background in Semitic languages (such as Biblical Hebrew or Biblical Aramaic) will find the language very interesting and easy to pick up….

Important Questions on the Extent of the Atonement

Important Questions on the Extent of the Atonement

I began researching and writing roughly 10 years ago. The more I read of the modern literature, the more I realized I needed to go back and read the primary sources on this subject, especially from the Reformation to the present. My chapter on the extent question, “The Extent of the Atonement: Limited or Universal?”, which was published in 2010 in Whosoever Will: a Biblical-Theological Critique of Calvinism, became….

Gregory MaGee’s Response to My Review of His Portrait of an Apostle

Earlier, I reviewed Greg Magee’s published dissertation, Portrait of an Apostle: A Case for Paul’s Authorship of Colossians and Ephesians (Wipf & Stock, 2013), 204 pages. You can catch up on the review here. I found this book very creative and well executed, so I decided to ask Greg to write a reply to my review, hoping that he could sharpen my thinking a bit on a topic he spent years studying. He graciously replied, and we hope the discussion between us is fruitful and stimulating….

Interview with Keith Loftin, editor of God and Morality: Four Views

Interview with Keith Loftin, editor of God and Morality: Four Views

C. S. Lewis, in Mere Christianity, writes that “you find out more about God from the Moral Law than from the universe in general just as you find out more about a man by listening to his conversation than by looking at a house he has built.” Thinking carefully about the connection between God and morality has apologetic value, as Lewis notes. Indeed, Lewis and a great number of other Christian apologists have thought the connection such that an argument from morality to the existence of God is possible. Beyond that, such an inquiry involves thinking about both the nature of God (e.g., His omnibenevolence and aseity) and the nature of mankind (e.g., our origin and moral knowledge)….
