Moralism or Allegory? Are These the Only Options?

/
I am a pastor who wants to preach God’s Word faithfully. I also happen to teach preaching to seminary students who also want to preach God’s Word faithfully. I want, by God’s grace, to teach them well and help them “rightly divide the Word of truth” for God’s glory. I spend, therefore, a lot of...

Tebowgetics

/
I’m a cynic and a pessimist by nature. Usually, if “everybody is doing it,” I don’t. I can’t tell you whether it’s my sin nature, my metacultural bent, or a regenerate distrust of fads and mania in general.

A Few Good Books

Every three years the DBTS faculty collaborate to produce a Basic Library Booklist for pastors.  Of course, books come out more frequently than every three years, so I thought it might be helpful to reflect publicly on the “must haves” in systematic theology from 2011.
