            John Goldingay. Reading Jesus’s Bible: How the New Testament Helps Us Understand the Old Testament. Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2017. Available at Eerdmans and Koorong. By Jill Firth John Goldingay offers us another interesting reading challenge: to read the Old Testament as Jesus’s Bible. Reading the OT and the NT is a two-way process. Quoting Richard B. Hays (Reading Backwards, 4), Goldingay invites us to ‘learn to read the OT by reading backwards from the Gospels, and–at the same time–we learn… Read more

            Over at the White Horse Inn is a great discussion with Richard Bauckham, D.A. Carson, Craig Blomberg, Andreas Kostenberger, Lydia McGrew, and others on the authorship of the Gospel of John. I’m glad to say that Mike Horton sides with Richard Bauckham here! For me, part of a clincher is John 18:15-16, which says, “Simon Peter and another disciple were following Jesus. Because this disciple was known to the high priest, he went with Jesus into the high priest’s courtyard, but Peter… Read more

            Ronald E. Heine Origen: An Introduction to His Life and Thought Cascade Companions. Eugene, OR: Cascade, 2019. Available from Wipf & Stock. Ronald E. Heine has written a short, informative, and readable intro to Origen. There is a lot on Origen’s early life and context, his time in Alexandria and Caesarea. Probably the highlight is how Heine explains Origen’s rationale for allegorical and deeper readings of Scripture, very, very good. Also, Heine demonstrates that Origen is a genuine biblical interpreter,… Read more

            DAVID GURETZKI, AN EXPLORER’S GUIDE TO KARL BARTH (DOWNERS GROVE: IVP, 2016)  and MARK GALLI, KARL BARTH: AN INTRODUCTORY BIOGRAPHY FOR EVANGELICALS (GRAND RAPIDS: EERDMANS, 2017) By Dr. Chris Swann This was a difficult review to write. This may seem a strange thing to say about Mark Galli’s Karl Barth: An Introductory Biography for Evangelicals and David Guretzski’s An Explorer’s Guide to Karl Barth. Neither book is hard to read. Far from it! Both books are accessible, clear, and coherent…. Read more

            Australia’s culture wars have hit peak hysteria with concerns that a religious freedom bill is about to unleash a wave of bigotry and phobias against various minorities. The recent melee is part of the aftershock following the legislation of same-sex marriage which requires a settlement to enshrine religious freedom for those who dissented to it and is further complicated by the furor surrounding athlete Israel Folau who was dismissed from and then settled with Rugby Australia for instagramming a gloss… Read more

            Over at TGC-Australia is a great article by my Ridley College colleague Andy Judd on Thinking Through Old Testament Violence. For me, reading the Old Testament through the lens of the cross reveals a God who is anti-violent, rather than non-violent. It is not in his nature to destroy, but to redeem. He is not bloodthirsty like the Canaanite gods, but nor will he sit by passively while evil takes over his world. God does not delight in the death of the wicked,… Read more

The Lord’s Prayer, or Our Father, has to be one of the most well-known pieces of Christian scripture, read as it is in public occasions, openings of parliament, and throughout our media.
