A female Tullian?--If you read my blog with any regularity, you will know of my deep appreciation for the Gospel-centrality of Tullian Tchvidjian. He can write a blog post every day, but the message is nearly always the same. And I never get tired of reading it. Serena Woods writes in a similar fashion. She is also an ardent defender of the unvarnished Gospel message and a wonderful writer. A couple of weeks ago, she wrote "When a dose of hell is God's will". Please read. Also, a special note for all of you young men who love theology: read Serena. Though I don't always agree with her, she writes the way a person should write when theology actually meets life.
New is not necessarily better--Tom Schreiner writes at the Gospel Coalition regarding the recent trend of books on egalitarianism. He asks, "Is the goal of publishing to write what is true or what is new? One of
the dangers of evangelical publishing is the desire to say something
novel. Our evangelical publishing houses could end up like those in
Athens so long ago: 'Now all the Athenians and the strangers visiting
there used to spend their time in nothing other than telling or hearing
something new'". I think we need to be cautious about assuming new is better; often historic interpretations are closer to the truth.
