Here are three new titles I recently received from IVP. I've already begun working through Thornhill's The Chosen People: Election, Paul and Second Temple Judaism and am enjoying the survey of Second Temple Literature (an area in which I have much to learn). Johnson's Theology as Discipleship ...

Do you have a list of books that should be in any Christian library?
A friend asked me if I had such a list to be used to start a church lending library. I did a little research and came up with a quick list of just under 150 books (link below). I'm sure there are gaping holes, so I would like to know what you would add. One of the many difficulties in creating a ...

This is a great video explaining (in a very humorous way) the difficulty with the common analogies for the Holy Trinity. #trinity   #Stpatrick

This morning I began a Sunday School series exploring the doctrine of the Trinity using as a base line Michael Reeves's book, Delighting in the Trinity (IVP Academic, 2012).

As to the question of the relevancy of the doctrine of the Trinity I was greatly moved by Prof. James Torrance's concluding anecdote in answer to Bruce Smith's question: What one thing would you have to say to our troubled world, our disturbed homes, and distressed individuals? Torrance's answer begins at 17:02 and lasts for about 6 minutes. In short, "we don't throw people back upon themselves." Rather, in so many words we introduce them to the Triune God - Father, Son and Spirit. Listen, it is worth your time.

Lately, the topic of forgiveness has been on my mind--particularly the duty of Christians to forgive as they have been forgiven. Today, I found this statement from Augustine and it has helped to clarify a key issue I had overlooked. Essentially, the distinguishing mark of those who strive after ...

Doxology in the Midst of Perceived Abandonment

Flipping through my notepad this morning I came across a statement on the practice of doxology that I copied down from Walter Brueggemann's book, Prophetic Imagination. This statement caught my attention back when an older friend was dying and the small congregation I was serving was grieving. I was helped and encouraged at that time, and this morning I was blessed again by the reminder!

Brueggemann declares..."I believe that, rightly embraced, no more subversive or prophetic idiom can be uttered than the practice of doxology, which sets us before the reality of God, of God right at the center of a scene from which we presumed he had fled."

By the uplifting power of the Holy Spirit we are enabled to rise up on the midst of our grief and sorrow to SING...

Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
Praise Him all creatures here below.
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host.
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

and 

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning, tis now and ever shall be, world without end, Amen.

Theological Sources for Studying the Scriptures
Introduction
TheoSource is a site designed to make available the fruit of a project I have enjoyed since 1998. On this site you will find a number of book recommendation lists covering the gamut of Christian theology (general reference, commentaries, special works, theology, philosophy, biography, etc.). More specifically, you will find lists that compile specific recommendations from a wide variety of sources.
