Serial Choice? Hermeneutics and a High View of the Bible"

Article by   September 2013

Did God Really Say?

Article by   May 2012
By questioning what God really said, the serpent infamously enticed Eve to do more than simply assess whether God's Word was trustworthy. The serpent's question lured Eve, and Adam in her wake, into a radical reordering of their relationship with... continue

Article by   September 2011
In a previous post (and here), I noted how sophisticated, Reformed evangelicals are both disclaiming the arrogance of Enlightenment rationalism and skirting the bottomless pit of postmodern relativism, contending that total human objectivity is an illusion and postmodernism is intellectual quicksand.... continue

Home Repair and Hermeneutics (Part 2)

Article by   August 2011
