I remember writing an email to the head pastor of our (former) church offering to help in ways which matched my giftings and training as a pastor, and as a theologian. I enjoyed leading worship and playing drums on occassion, but I yearned to use my gifts of teaching and preaching. After graduating from seminary, I […]

Originally posted on Doctrinae Coram Deo:
A friend of mine gave the recent sentiment how NT scholars know a whole lot about NT Literature and their knowledge of Greek is limited to Matt–Rev, let alone having broader knowledge of early Christianity. As a NT and Early Christian scholar, I have to be mindful of tons…

I’m diverting from my normal posts regarding Greek language, PhD studies, and lately, John Barclay’s new book. Today, I want to encourage you to consider helping a friend of mine from seminary. His name is Karl Heitman, and he is just awesome. This guy is a faithful husband and father, a dedicated pastor of a church […]

One of the most difficult, if not the most difficult, components of writing is, for me, waiting to write. I find it extremely challenging to hold back from putting pen to paper, and then fingers to keyboard. My research begins with reading, lots of it. But during that initial foray into the secondary material, I soon […]

If you haven’t yet been convinced that you need to read Barclay’s new book on Paul (though over 10 years in the making), then this recommendation from Garwood Anderson might just tip the scales for you: http://livingchurch.org/covenant/2015/11/03/some-of-you-should-read-john-barclays-new-book/ Enjoy!

Ben Witherington has just written a two-part blog in which he interviews John Barclay on his new book, Paul and the Gift.  Others have already compared Barclay’s book to game-changers such as E. P. Sanders’ Paul and Palestinian Judaism (1977). Witherington now includes Wayne Meeks’ The First Urban Christians (1983) to this growing list of books that changed the […]

It’s about time somebody made a proper interleaf Bible, and Crossway has stepped up to bat (see here). I’ll have to see the final product when it is released, but at this point I’m really excited. And interleaf, if you don’t know, is when every other page of the book, or Bible, is completely blank. […]

As a heads up to my readers, I wanted to let you know that soon I’ll be publishing a review of the recently-released Bibleworks 10. And I can use your help! I’ve been a user of BW for about 4 years now, having purchased my first copy of BW9 whilst in seminary. Over the years, […]

This recent post by David Murray has collected a number of excellent posts addressing the question of whether one should take the time to do a PhD. The post is geared towards those who are in that funny DMZ between academia and pastoral ministry, and wondering how they might mesh. I should also mention that […]
