  1. Book Review: A New Testament Biblical Theology 

    G. K. Beale's book has been called magisterial. It is certainly big. It is without doubt as impressive as it is imposing. And it is possibly the most thorough apology for amillennialism ever put into print. . . . Biblical theology can be done in many ways. A clever man can do all kinds of things with it. Those who seek to comprehend it through types, shadows and often obscure allusions, believing that the NT reinterprets the Old, may win the day. They are good men who love the Lord and will answer to Him. But their approach differs so substantially from that of those of us who believe that God does not transform His stated meanings that there can be no theological rapprochement.

  2. Seeing Though Blind (Mat. 9:27-34) 

    Desperation is often the path by which the blind are made to see. [35 minutes]

  3. Revisiting Inerrancy: A Panel Discussion Considers What Is at Stake 

    I'm recommending your consideration of this helpful video presentation concerning the importance of our stand on the inerrancy of Scripture. Dr. Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, joins with other members of the faculty (Gregg Allison, Denny Burk, Russell Moore, and Bruce Ware) to discuss modern attacks on the reliability of Scripture.

    With current challenges to the inerrancy of Scripture in view, [Dr. Albert Mohler] convened a panel of theologians to revisit the question. In one sense, the challenges to inerrancy are more direct than ever, with figures associated with some evangelical institutions calling for a straightforward repudiation of the doctrine. Other assaults are more subtle, but all of these challenges demand our close attention.

    If you desire a greater understanding of the critically important difference between claims that the Scriptures are "infallible" (the liberal view) rather than "inerrant" (the conservative view) and the relation of both terms to "inspiration," this discussion should prove helpful. The Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy is a very helpful resource mentioned during the discussion. I especially enjoyed mention of the tongue-in-cheek "Dalmatian Theory of Inspiration" : Scripture is inspired in spots and you are inspired in order to spot the spots. [59 minutes]
