And yet more Anglicans... or ex-Anglicans

Article by   November 2010
Further to the blog entries by Carl and Paul, I note with some fascination the Canterbury trail is leading, well, to Rome. See here. It's curious: denials of doctrine seem to pass without too much difficulty, but a mere hint... continue

Trueman, Schnitzel, the Heidelberg disputation and psalms

Article by   October 2010
Fascinating day, partly because in the order of things, I had the day off. Carl Trueman gave a brilliant defense of Creeds and Confessions, so brilliant that it made the "no creed but the Bible" folk sound like the lunatic... continue

Article by   September 2010
This week, we welcome four new regular contributors to the Ref21 blog: Paul Levy, Liam Goligher, Gabriel Furher and Carlton Wynne. I should make it clear that none of these names are aliases for Carl Trueman. Paul and Liam are both gospel-centered,... continue

Philistia and the angels

Article by   September 2010
It's always fun watching Philistia get down and personal with the likes of Hawking. In a robust style, The Economist took Hawking's atheistic stance to task and all we could do was watch and smile. See here. And on the... continue
