  1. On Kevin DeYoung’s ‘Nine Thoughts’– The strong Baptist flavour of the New Calvinism in the US reflects a sincere search for a Christian practise that is integrative, profound, and true. The worst problems– (1) Its ‘ressourcement’ of the Puritans warms my history-loving heart but is not balanced by any awareness of the theology of Karl Barth and those who have followed him, even though it is well-represented in the stronger evangelical seminaries and fruitful in practise; (2) ‘Newcal’ complementarianism starts with a fair assessment of the fragility of male development, but often addresses that fragility with prescriptions for evangelical women that alienate them and solve nothing. In fairness, many have found this movement to be a stepping stone away from ‘Moralistic Therapeutic Deism.’ Let’s hope that they keeping stepping on stones until they get to the other side of the stream. Or just dive into the ‘river’ 😉

  2. I don’t know if it is just me. but I appreciate the post above and the variety on offer but also I am finding it a little difficult to choose, whereas I personally like to be aware and take an interest in current affairs, I prefer a bit of a structure all be it online for theological reflection. This has of course been offered in the sermon thoughts, and although the sermon thoughts are there they are a bit disjointed for me. Not long to Easter now , what would you recommend for me to lead into Easter. I know the bible is a good place to start but I am sure you understand what I am saying. In terms of reading I would prefer something which does not distract from Easter ie something which concentrates on Christ and the characteristics we need to seek accept and keep hold of rather than the current social and cultural issues. I know they are important but I want to tune into God rather than the world at this time. That brings a whole new meaning to in the world not of the world , well I know I am in the world but I would like to try not to be of it! Just for a short while at least
