History and Culture

Pulpit Magazine has a fantastic review of Stephen J. Nichols new book, Jesus, Made in America: A Cultural History from the Puritans to the Passion of the Christ.


Ed Stetzer has posted a presentation that he did several weeks ago at Every Nation ministries entitled Movemental Christianity Presentation.

Eric Bryant has posted an outline of a recent teleseminar entitled “Catalyzing Community;” for those of you interested in listening the audio is below.

Both of the above posts are great examples of similar missional paradigms and I would love to hear your thoughts on them.


Earlier this year I came across an article written by John M. Frame in 1972 and later published in 1978.  The article, “Proposal For A New Seminary” is extremely intriguing, especially coming from an individual such as Dr. Frame.  What makes it more interesting are the postscripts from Dr. Frame as he reflects upon his own writing.


John Piper has received much attention lately on the theme of baptism and has now posted the second installment of a three part series on church membership and baptism.  This week’s sermon “What Is Baptism, and How Important Is It?” is particularly insightful on several counts.  I am waiting to hear the final sermon in this series and then will likely devote a post to reflecting on it.
