Tell All The Truth But Tell It Slant. What is creative truth-telling? @DemetriusLeroy @humblebeast #canvas2016

Tell the ALL truth… but tell it SLANT. That takes creativity. And the more creative you are, likely, the less direct you’re going to be. It’s not enough to ask, “What’s the truth I wanna get across?” But also, “What’s my angle? What’s my slant?”
This poem is a call to the winsome and clever use of truth. Dickinson suggests, “Tell ALL the Truth, but tell it slant.” Yes, tell it SLANT.

Beauty and Life in the Garden. @JRyanLister's lecture from #canvas2016. @humblebeast

Christians talk all the time about Eden and rightfully so, yet, it usually is just to set the scene for the upcoming drama rather than be a part of the drama itself. But when we come seeking God’s agenda rather than pushing our own, we see that Eden is…
The description of Eden’s beauty gives way to the crafty snake chapter 3. But the next chapter doesn’t make sense without exploring Eden’s beauty further.

What Bible software should you use? @pj_schreiner @gbreshears @Logos @AccordanceBible @BibleWorks

Do you want to better understand the language and context of the Bible? Bible software can be a great resource in your studies. In fact, Western so believes in the benefit of these tools that we recently entered into a special arrangement with Logos to…

Adam Christian review "The Gospel According to Heretics" by David E. Wilhite. @BakerAcademic

This book is written with the understanding that we can best understand orthodox theology when it is put in dialogue with the early heresies faced by the church. Much of our well thought out and concrete theological explanations emerged out of direct…

Adam Christian reviews "Invitation to the Septuagint" (Second Edition). @BakerAcademic

There are challenges and barriers that often keep students from engaging with the Greek translation of the Old Testament. Seminary students engage in the study of Greek and Hebrew for the purpose of reading the Bible in the language it was written in.…
"Invitation to the Septuagint" addresses several common problems among students of Biblical Greek.

A Sacramental Perspective on Creativity and the Arts from @pj_schreiner. @humblebeast #canvas2016

I am afraid that we have relegated Christianity to something in our mind and lost the sense of how holistic redemption is, how God communicates what Christianity is through the images that he has given to his church. There is a felt flatness to some…
The sacramental images, such as Baptism and the Lord’s Supper, teach us that Christianity is a complete worldview. They declare we don’t occupy two worlds.

It is the tension between belief and experience that Portland, Oregon-based pastor, professor, and author A.J. Swoboda explores in A Glorious Dark. In it, a means of navigating between these poles is identified: hope. And yet, Swoboda does not offer this…
It is the tension between belief and experience that Portland, Oregon-based pastor, professor, and author A.J. Swoboda explores in A Glorious Dark. In it, a means of navigating between these poles is identified: hope. And yet, Swoboda does not offer this as a huckster's panacea, but rather, as a sincere solution - one characterized more by grit than gloss.

Adam Christian reviews "Progressive Covenantalism." @BHAcademic.

Progressive Covenantalism, edited by Stephen Wellum and Brent Parker, is meant as a follow-up to Kingdom through Covenant, which was published in 2012. While both books seek to offer an alternative system to dispensationalism and covenant theology, this…

Are you seeking social glory? @jwritebol @gcdiscipleship

Our culture at large gives renown and praise to celebrities for who they are, what they have accomplished, and the things they have produced. We taught that if you want your life to matter, you have to have people pay attention.
In a high-charged, socially-aware, and omnipresent world today, we have to think through how to defuse our social-glory-seeking selves.

Dr. Carl Laney looks at the biblical themes of kingdom, redemption, and judgment.

The Bible is more than a collection of thrilling stories or a library of inspired books. The Bible is one book that tells one great story of how God has reached out from eternity into time to give us a place in His story. As you read the Bible, look for…
Part 2 of Dr. Carl Laney's article, "Biblical Illiteracy in the Church Today," originally published in the Spring 2016 edition of "Western Magazine."
