Stay Tuned: Do Not Adjust Your Set

Sorry about the slow pace of blogging lately. I've been sick with a flu just keeps hanging on and up to my ears in work at the same time. I anticipate getting back to it soon, but the next two weeks are going to be busy. Here is a bit of a preview.

I do want to follow up on my Augustine and Yoder series of posts by making some comments on David VanDrunen's excellent little book: A Biblical Case for Natural Law. I also want to read his book on the two kingdoms doctrine in Reformed theology and comment on it as well. Did you know Calvin, not just Luther, endorsed the two kingdoms idea and that its origin is in Augustine? Well if you did, good for you. Many people who have read Niebuhr's Christ and Culture think the two kingdoms doctrine is the opposite of the Reformed view.

I also want to get up some of my recent thoughts on the Ten Commandments. I'm preaching on the Ten Commandments this year on the first Sunday of each month.

I have just finished reading Shadow Gospel by Charles F. Raven on the relationship between Rowan Williams' theology and his leadership of the Anglican Communion as Archbishop of Canterbury. I will have some comments on it.

I am just starting Michael Horton's new systematic theology and I want to make some comments on it as I go through it.

I also plan to have a bit more to say on N. T. Wright, but right now I'm still sick of reading him and hearing about him after ETS.

I will continue to comment on current political events and no doubt will have another crack or two at socialism and radical Islam.

Stay tuned.
