The New York Times said: ‘Long before Twitter, Martin Luther was a media pioneer. The 500th anniversary of Luther’s 95 theses is being celebrated at institutions across the country [and around the world today], showing how deftly he used the media of his day.’ The Aquila Report joins the 500th anniversary celebration with a curated list of 95 links and resources.

Republication: A Doctrinal Controversy Four Decades in the Making
The dispute before the Reformed churches on covenant theology is of paramount importance and concerns one of the critical disputes of the late twentieth- and early twenty-first centuries.

Written by Mark W. Karlberg | Thursday, September 4, 2014

Given the history and developments of this raging debate concerning Reformed covenant theology, we can now fairly say that the two principle disputants are Gaffin (representing a radical revision of John Murray’s teaching) and Meredith G. Kline (representing historic, mainstream Reformed federalism, espoused from the time of the Reformation to the present).

Some might consider this an obscure topic, but others will consider it something worth more discussion.

Augustine, our great North African father, said that each Psalm had a ‘single body of feeling that vibrates in every syllable’. As Peter Brown has noted, Augustine believed that each Psalm could be presented as a microcosm of the whole Bible — the clear essence of Christianity refracted through in the exotic spectrum of Hebrew poetry.

Why would anyone sing in church these days, and if they did sing in church, why sing the Psalms? Some have complained that modern praise and worship songs are fluffy, incoherent, shallow, and heretical. In a recent video Bono said modern Christian music is dishonest, while the Psalms are “brutally honest”. We don’t get our theology from rock stars, or change our liturgy because the cool kids include Psalms in their liturgy. So what explains the resurgence of interest in the Psalms and singing the Psalms in corporate worship? The answer is as short as the road from Jericho to Jerusalem (only 15 miles) — but it’s all up hill — quickly ascending 3500 feet.
