I’ve set up a new page that catalogues my publications on same-sex attraction.
I had the honor to contribute in a small way to Third Millennium Ministry’s seminary curriculum. The course “Making Biblical Decisions” led by John Frame was revamped, and I was interviewed for the lessons on being good and choosing good. Third Mill is doing good work in providing solid theological education for those otherwise unable to receive it.
Mere Orthodoxy put together a list of of 23 book recommendations for the end of 23. I was honored to be asked to recommend a book that was published before 2005, and opted for G. C. Berkouwer’s Faith and Justification. The whole list of recommendations is good.
Petrus van Mastrich commenting on Exodus 34:6, from volume 2 of his Theoretical-Practical Theology:
“The goodness of God…designated as (1) love, which is nothing except goodness as it is communicative of itself [i.e. love is God giving his goodness]; (2) grace, which is nothing but love that is not owed; (3) mercy, which is nothing but grace toward the miserable; (4) longsuffering, which is nothing but patience that is long-lasting; and (5) kindness, which is nothing but longsuffering with beneficence. And these are the affections of the gracious God, about which Moses speaks in Exodus 34:6.”
I contributed a book review on Geerhardus Vos’ Natural Theology to the most recent edition of the Haddington House Journal. This is the new translation, with an introduction by J. V. Fesko, and I highly commend it.
