If you’ve followed this blog for even a short time, you’ll know that I am a big fan of Crossway’s Short Studies in Biblical Theology. These books make Biblical Theology…
The Bible is the grand, sweeping story of the unfolding plan of God throughout the history of the world. Those are the words on the back of the new ESV…
"Christ came to accomplish what was necessary to open the way for us, not just back into the garden of Eden, but into a home that will be even better…
Christian Ethics is a complicated subject to tackle. Well, I say complicated, in some ways it is pretty straight forward. But ethics are what fall out of a whole Bible theology; and therefore, are affected by the way you put together the Bible. So the challenge is to put together an ethical standard that is consistent and as Biblically centred as is possible.

This book could not have come at a better time, both personally where I have been completing studies in the doctrine at college, and in society where society seems to be scraping around in the darkness looking for the light of truth.
