    The American Scientific Afiliation has a tremendous base of resources on the science of the Bible:

    Conversant Life has some interesting perspectives–its often less specific (or rather more random) than most of the resources I’ve pointed to above:

  2. compassioninpolitics / Apr 13 2011 4:23 am

    Interesting debate on professional vs. lay preaching and leadership in the church:

  3. compassioninpolitics / Apr 17 2011 8:14 am

    Here are some more Conservative leaning resources [I make them available in the interest of the marketplace of ideas]:

    I’m not sure I like the wallbuilders metaphor–but I can see there being a role of BOTH bridges and walls in the Christian church. Is the act of defending, building, or defining exclusively about “wall building”? And certainly even as we build walls….we need to be breaking down other walls. Jesus was certainly doing both as I read the New Testament.

    Sojourners is probably the largest org that represents more left leaning Christian ideas [although it might be unfair to say they are exclusively left leaning]:

    Here is their summary of beliefs on political and cultural issues:

    Somewhat unrelated, but important is the Honest Theist channel on YouTube, which has some theology & apologetics video:

  4. compassioninpolitics / Apr 17 2011 9:33 am

    Orphans/Social Justice Resources:

  5. compassioninpolitics / Apr 18 2011 10:34 pm

    Billy Grahams’ Touch One Life Resourses is an interesting example:

  6. compassioninpolitics / Aug 19 2011 4:10 am

    Here is an interesting resource which answers some core questions about apolegetics:

  7. compassioninpolitics / Aug 19 2011 7:56 am

    Here is something that I just ran across which is also interesting in this area (which seems to bridge the reason/faith debate):

    Further, here is the beginning of a panel discussion at a Christian book conference:

    You can watch the other videos in the you tube series.

  8. compassioninpolitics / Aug 26 2011 12:38 am

    Here is another resource, which focuses on New Testament reliability:

  9. Nathan Ketsdever / Sep 12 2011 4:20 am

    Dr. Ray Clouser has a rather interesting critique of materialist reductionism. His articles are available here:

    You can watch him here (i suggest starting at 10:40–where he outlines 2 to 3 key arguments. the easiest to understand is the thought experiment, which comes later):

  10. Nathan Ketsdever / Sep 12 2011 5:31 am

    Author of Tacit Knowledge

    I’m not sure what his ultimate conclusions are or his faith-background. But he makes an argument for knowledge beyond the physical.

    Also interesting….investigating….abductive logic/abductive reasoning.

    I’m not sure if the originator Charles Sanders Pierce makes any theological arguments based on it–however. It certainly plays an interesting role in theological argument. (as does art, metaphor, & story)

  11. compassioninpolitics / Sep 19 2011 7:10 pm

    The first 10 minutes of this speech for the Veritas Forum are quite good (an argument for faith and a criticism of traditional enlightenment and hence materialism):

  12. Nathan Ketsdever / Sep 20 2011 11:53 pm

    The science of love, compassion, happiness, empathy & meaning & purpose in life:

    These folks are coming from a more secular perspective. Some of the work at The Greater Good at Berkeley is Buddhist in orientation.

    The work of Stephen G Post also looks interesting:

  13. compassioninpolitics / Sep 21 2011 12:25 am

    In More God, Less Crime renowned criminologist Byron R. Johnson proves that religion can be a powerful antidote to crime. The book describes how faith communities, congregations, and faith-based organizations are essential in forming partnerships necessary to provide the human and spiritual capital to effectively address crime, offender rehabilitation, and the substantial aftercare problems facing former prisoners. There is scattered research literature on religion and crime but until now, there has never been one publication that systematically and rigorously analyzes what we know from this largely overlooked body of research in a lay-friendly format. The data shows that when compared to current strategies, faith-based approaches to crime prevention bring added value in targeting those factors known to cause crime: poverty, lack of education, and unemployment. In an age of limited fiscal resources, Americans can’t afford a criminal justice system that turns its nose up at volunteer efforts that could not only work better than the abysmal status quo, but also save billions of dollars at the same time. This book provides readers with practical insights and recommendations for a faith-based response that could do just that.

    Here is an interview of the author:

    Here are some of the organizations & models that the book highlights (one of which was the Amachi method of partnership with Big Brothers & Big Sisters) :

    Its based on the work of 273 studies in the peer reviewed literature. 90% favor an inverse relationship between crime/delinquency & religion. Only 2 studies found a harmful outcome.

  14. compassioninpolitics / Sep 26 2011 7:58 am

    This is an argument for fine tuning in genetics. To my knowledge–it doesn’t make the application to faith…but this is incredibly interesting.

    Codon populations in single-stranded whole human genome DNA Are fractal and fine-tuned by the Golden Ratio 1.618

    You can read about the Golden ratio in terms of sunflower seeds as well.

    Patterns in Nature by Peter S. Stevens suggests still other patterns (you can get it for $22 on Amazon, but otherwise looks hard to find).

    This video makes a similar argument based on fibonaccis sequence (its just under 4 minutes long–the last 2 minutes are particularly critical).

    This blog at Townhall provides a short summary:

    I haven’t read through this article, but provides an interesting take on origins & design:

    You can follow the blog here:

    Here is a related article on the demarcation problem–the issue of where science begins (its basically a critique of materialism):

  15. compassioninpolitics / Oct 27 2011 10:26 pm

    Here are some Christian organizations in the social justice space:

  16. Nathan Ketsdever / Nov 9 2011 12:18 am

    Baylor based links:

    Redeemer videos–no specific videos here–but Tim Keller says some interesting & useful stuff:

    Here is some work by the Templeton Foundation in collaboration with universities:

    Also there are various Christian philosophy organizations and associations (TBA)

  17. Nathan Ketsdever / Dec 12 2011 10:23 am

    Here are some more audio resources on Christian apolegetics:

  18. Nathan Ketsdever / Dec 21 2011 9:41 am

    Calvin College’s work funded by the Templeton Foundation (interesting overlap between the academy & Christianity/theology). I haven’t fully investigated these–but very interesting:

    Perspectives on Science & Christian Faith (I’m not sure if this includes “both” sides or not…but certainly an important resource:

    A theology/apolegetics/science conference with free video (roughly 20+):

    A Christian apolegetics blog which features key thought leaders and debates:

    This is actually the bulk of the apolegetics focus here of Wintery Knight (the rest is more politically oriented):

    It would also be smart to include literary apolegetics (google it)

  19. Nathan Ketsdever / Dec 21 2011 10:37 am

    I’m still quite convinced by Hugh Ross’ account of the origin of life/evolution.

    Also, Stephen Meyer’s deep philosophical argument is quite convincing. I think his reference to the work in information design via engineers at Microsoft (nature uses the same folder in a folder design that engineers do)–the engineering of the cell demonstrates elements of design as well.

    Stephen Meyer recommended this article/talk:
    Is There Scientific Evidence for the Existence of God? How the Recent Discoveries Support a Designed Universe
    Dr. Walter L. Bradley (Texas A & M and now at Baylor)

    Other interesting notes:
    Meyer also points out how the “God of the gaps” indict isn’t fair…because thats true of all scientific theories.

    Robert Shapiro (Bob) is an atheist….but critiques the scientific understanding of “origin of life” (pre-biotic chemistry community) and how that lead to the creation of RNA & its replication. He says these experiments actually ***prove*** the design thesis.

    Thomas Kuhn calls into question the idea of “objective scientist” perhaps (I’m still thinking about this one).

  20. compassioninpolitics / Jan 4 2012 6:57 pm

    Here is an idea thats under-developed (or at least under-developed as far as the mainstream of society is concerned)–faith & psychology. David Myers is a prof at Hope College & author:

  21. Nathan Ketsdever / Jan 28 2012 11:38 am

    Fantastic resources. They probably tend toward more toward theistic evolution.

    I think every Christian should at least consider such a position. Its more an indict of materialism and scientism from what I can tell.
    I’m quite impressed by these Test of Faith resources.

    Many of the videos are on their YouTube Channel:

    Christians in Science Resources

    Faraday Institute for God and Religion–I’m not sure if the aim of this org. is Christian or perhaps more multi-cultural:

  22. Nathan Ketsdever / Feb 25 2012 1:46 am

    Dr. Michael Denton:

    On emergence:

    On body plans:

    Other interesting stuff–emergence in nature:

    Emergence in biology:

    A number of the books in this library speak to the issue of emergence–they are not, however Christian in orientation or philosophy:

  23. Nathan Ketsdever / Mar 8 2012 5:56 am

    David Berlinski & Michael Denton: Primary Objections to Neo-Darwinism

    Veritas Forum: Can Genesis be Compatible with Evolution?

    Jeffrey P. Schloss, Tremper Longman, S. Joshua Swamidass
    University of California, Santa Barbara 2012

    You can check out Schloss’ work here:

  24. Nathan Ketsdever / Mar 8 2012 6:11 am

    Dr. Henry F. Schaefer, III:,_III
    There are a number of links at the bottom of the wikipedia entry.

    This article doesn’t take a big stance, but may give you an idea of why I’ve included him:

  25. Nathan Ketsdever / Mar 9 2012 12:44 am

    This list is worth adding to this thread–Nobel prize winners who agree with (and in some cases overlap with intelligent design):

  26. Nathan Ketsdever / Mar 10 2012 5:56 am

    This is a little off topic, but here is a potentially great option for low cost church websites (about $200 a year, which compared to a $2000 to $3000 build is quite nice….especially since you’ll probably want to update it down the road). Not sure what they charge for any customizations you might want:

  28. Nathan Ketsdever / Apr 2 2012 3:33 am
  29. compassioninpolitics / Apr 12 2012 8:38 pm

    Interesting insights potentially… with care (ie Francis Chan & others) :

  31. compassioninpolitics / May 1 2012 3:45 am

    Work (aka research) on compassion at Stanford:

    Compassion & Care research at Berkeley:

    I believe both have work on spirituality…..although much may assume Buddhism, versus Christianity, but they seem to be an answer to skeptic-type philosophers and the new-atheist line in philosophy as well.

  32. commpassioninpolitics / Aug 14 2012 10:57 pm

    A number of theology links. I haven’t really gone through this extensively, but seems like an interesting source of article links on the science vs. theology question:

  33. commpassioninpolitics / Sep 21 2012 7:55 pm

    I feel like this deserves to be both in Coaching/Consulting and this area as well (actually along with business as missions):

    I don’t leave it here because these articles are the best….but I’ve purchased 2 of Tonys books and they seem to work (One was a book of coaching questions and the other was a leadership book). I probably with the leadership book was more work-book-esque, but I think it did its job.

    One of Tonys books I bought:

    And more of Tony’s resources (paid, but many on sale):

    I also bought Power Questions…which is about mentoring & coaching & leadership….which is a more mainstream book with a re-occurring Christian theme.

    Finally, its hard to go wrong with 7 Habits by Covey. I think its his best book. (I have Principle Centered Leadership, 8th Habit, and the Speed of Trust….and it beats those hands down).
    I liked the leadership overview (of the research) at the end of 8th habit & I liked Chapter 11 on influence in Principle Centered Leadership.

    I happen to like the Success Principles by Jack Canfield (not a Christian book). I actually picked it up for $2 at a local used bookstore. I’m sure you could get it on Amazon used for about $6.

    Its an emerging or at presumably growing field in some respects–and it seems to me that it serves a real purpose.

    Feel free to leave your comments about coaching, coaching resources, coaching books, or Stephen Covey, etc…. below….

    Stadia Church Planters
    Church Development Fund

  36. Nathan Ketsdever / Oct 19 2012 5:55 am

    The links above in the previous post I believe were specific to CoC and Restoration churches….

    Stadia Link:

  37. commpassioninpolitics / Oct 25 2012 2:24 am

    A number of small group resources:

    Particularly the Basic series by Francis Chan:

  38. commpassioninpolitics / Oct 29 2012 5:21 am

    Christian psychologist at Hope College in Michigan:

    * My guess is that he has a slightly liberal slant on things, but perhaps not.

  39. Nathan Ketsdever / Nov 26 2012 6:09 am

    I’ve included this Amazon list due to its inclusion of 2 critiques of Bart Ehrman at the end:

  40. Nathan Ketsdever / Dec 4 2012 9:11 pm

    Christian sermons. They also have players:

    Not sure which churches & denominations are included.

  41. Nathan Ketsdever / Dec 4 2012 9:23 pm

    Includes Presp. Best Practices of Church Planting:

    Seems like impressive research

    This is a basic logistics list for growing churches/planting churches:

  42. Nathan Ketsdever / Dec 4 2012 9:37 pm

    Interesting theological perspective (in top 10 list form):

    Seems to internally answer some skeptic challenges.

  43. commpassioninpolitics / Dec 13 2012 3:56 am

    This is probably more Christian business & business as mission, but this is quite interesting:,245.html

  44. commpassioninpolitics / Dec 13 2012 4:16 am

    Looks to be a pretty interesting/useful Christian apolegetics bibliography (with links to articles):

  45. commpassioninpolitics / Dec 13 2012 9:26 pm

    Ed Stetzer on Church Growth & Leadership–(arguably) more for pastors & church leaders:

    Stetzer is also the author of a number of books on missions/church growth/leadership.

    Leadership Summaries (just under $7 a month):

  46. Nathan Ketsdever / Dec 17 2012 2:59 am

    List of interesting Christian links (I’m not sure any are direct to apolegetics…but you might find some that deal with art theology or justice theology, etc…):

    Interesting other stuff on the blog part.

    Also a good time to revisit Culture Making a bit (the links are on the page).

  47. commpassioninpolitics / Dec 24 2012 6:20 am

    Pepperdine hosted an event that tilted ideologically toward theistic evolution:

    There are a number of videos from the event. I believe about 10. If you click through to YouTube….you can find the others.

    Or you can just open a window with YouTube and do a search for said videos.

  48. compassioninpolitics / Jan 3 2013 6:08 pm

    Crossway. I saw something about faith & art from them, which seemed interesting–but here is their entire Vimeo channel:

  49. compassioninpolitics / Jan 5 2013 2:30 am

    This center probably tells a slightly different story than the Pepperdine video above–this is a center for Origins research at Bryan College:

  50. compassioninpolitics / Jan 5 2013 2:34 am
  51. compassioninpolitics / Jan 7 2013 6:47 am

    This I believe is a free resource for Christian apol. & theology books:

  52. compassioninpolitics / Jan 8 2013 4:14 pm

    Faith Comes By Hearing:

  53. compassioninpolitics / Jan 14 2013 6:05 pm

    Faith and Learning at Baylor–This happens to be their external resources/links page

  54. compassioninpolitics / Jan 14 2013 6:14 pm

    My name is Christopher B. James. I am PhD student at Boston University School of Theology in Practical Theology with a dual-concentration in Church & Society and Evangelism. My research interests include: ecclesiology, congregational studies, missional theology, evangelism, spiritual formation/discipleship, contemplation and action, American Evangelicalism, Lesslie Newbigin, Ignatius of Loyola, and church planting/new monasticism/emerging church.

    Through my work, I hope to bring together contemporary movements in missional ecclesiology and spiritual formation in the context of congregations.

    From Jesus Dust. Probably thought provoking–probably worth checking out given the scholarly basis with which is has been written:

  55. compassioninpolitics / Jan 17 2013 4:48 am

    A word on life-work balance (not Christian per se, but grounded in Christian values):

  56. compassioninpolitics / Jan 17 2013 4:52 am

    A critique of scientism (note: not a critique of science–a critique of scienctism & materialist ideology)

  57. compassioninpolitics / Jan 18 2013 4:06 am

    I’m curious about the way in which this framework (aka the diagram itself & major labels, not the text) might be helpful as a method for explaining certain apolegetics or approaching some question:

    Health Missions Method–CHE:

  62. compassioninpolitics / Feb 20 2013 7:55 pm
  63. compassioninpolitics / Mar 6 2013 4:40 am

    I believe these are potentially quite good:

    You can also find them on YouTube perhaps.

  64. compassioninpolitics / Mar 9 2013 2:15 am

    An interesting blog roll with some Christian philosophers & apologists

    A pretty decent YouTube question on theology:

    “First, the beginning of the universe clearly points toward a Creator (“Whatever begins to exist has a cause; the universe began to exist; therefore, the universe has a cause”). Second, the universe’s incredible fine-tuning defies coincidence and exhibits the handiwork of an intelligent designer. Third, our objective moral values are evidence that there is a God, since only He could establish a universal standard of right and wrong. Fourth, the historical evidence for the resurrection—including the empty tomb, eyewitness accounts, and the origin of the Christian faith—establish the divinity of Jesus. And, fifth, God can be immediately known and experienced by those who seek Him.”

  65. compassioninpolitics / Mar 9 2013 2:38 am

    Summary of works:

    Also the Templeton Societies work. Interesting integration of science & theology. I believe they put out one book a year on this topic.

  66. compassioninpolitics / Mar 9 2013 8:59 pm

    This essay isn’t quite in line with the other resources–its more worldview based:

    Not sure what politics or perspective this center has….I believe its Christian or at least generally so:

    I linked to it above, but a different subsection

  68. compassioninpolitics / Mar 9 2013 11:32 pm

    Faith has its Own Reasons:

    Fideism–including because its philosophically important….and it provides something to position from:

    There is a sense in which an intergrationists approach is needed. Thats what I believe is the purpose of the book “Faith has its Reasons”

    Interesting to back source some of the organizations that spoke:

  84. Nathan Ketsdever / Apr 18 2013 9:53 pm

    Reasons to Believe Partners (also Christian resources–at least most of them)

    They also have a number of educational programs. I don’t know if you have to pay for any of them. They are a non-profit, so I would think they either don’t charge or what they charge is minimal:

  85. Nathan Ketsdever / Apr 18 2013 10:00 pm

    From Notre Dame–not quite as conversational as Veritas:

  101. compassion in politics / May 1 2013 7:44 pm

    Preach Better Sermons:

    They have a fundraising product too.

    Acts 29 Network is a specific brand of Christianity–but probably have many insightful things to say:

  102. Nathan Ketsdever / May 3 2013 7:29 pm

    Massive list of seminaries & Bible schools:

  103. Nathan Ketsdever / May 3 2013 9:28 pm

    Various videos of cool science stuff–some of which proves or hints at patterns:

    I’m curious if there are more vivid or visually impressive projects which are similar.

  104. compassioninpolitics / May 6 2013 8:13 pm

    Know Think Act:

    Don’t know much about the ministry. Looks like an interesting ministry.

    The core concepts seem to be described here:

    I think this may be one of their revenue streams:

  105. Nathan Ketsdever / May 7 2013 5:58 pm

    Classic Academic Press (one of the home school presses):

    * Their focus on critical thinking is what is of interest to me.

  106. Nathan Ketsdever / May 8 2013 12:20 am

    Q Ideas Conference Videos

  107. Nathan Ketsdever / May 8 2013 11:28 pm

    Chip Ingram’s Living on the Edge:

  108. compassioninpolitics / May 17 2013 2:59 pm


    He has a TEDx talk as well. Called the Science Delusion. He’s more radical than I might like.

  109. Nathan Ketsdever / May 21 2013 3:24 am

    There is also a free Google/iPhone app:

  110. Nathan Ketsdever / May 21 2013 3:26 am

    Miracles are a controversial topic–its kind of a difficult issue to dive into–here is an article that does so:

    I’m personally not into the laying on of hands thing–it does mention some of those occurrences. So read with appropriate caution.

  115. compassioninpolitics / Jun 10 2013 6:24 pm

    Proverbs 32 Husband:

    This is not a real thing. There is no Proverbs 32 in the Bible. But….its an interesting
    thought experiment:

  116. Nathan Ketsdever / Jun 18 2013 1:32 am

  119. Nathan Kets / Jun 21 2013 2:24 am

    I’ve posted this before, but it bears repeating:

    Note to self–book distributors:

  127. compassioninpolitics / Jun 27 2013 7:05 pm

    MLK Sermons:

    Challenge–they are in cursive. I would think others might be in text.

    You can also buy the speeches for $20 bucks in book form or $30 in audio form (note this is partial). Stanford’s project on MLK also sells them.

  128. compassioninpolitics / Jun 27 2013 7:18 pm

    Critiques/Criticisms of Relativism:

    Piper also includes a critique of relativism in his book “Think” I would imagine that it may have been a sermon at some point.

    I would also harken back to Peter Kreft of Boston College’s criticism of relativism. You can Google it. It has 9 arguments:

  129. Nathan Kets / Jun 30 2013 5:13 am

    Andy Stanley’s/Northpoints–Your Move Series:

    Incredibly Impressive (Your Move Series–also runs after SNL on Sat night/Sun morning). I DVR it and should watch it more often.

  130. Nathan Kets / Jun 30 2013 5:42 am

    When God Seems Silent Conference on Open Biola (4 lectures/speeches):

  131. Nathan Kets / Jun 30 2013 5:49 am

    Old Earth Creationism (I think)–Presbestyrian

    I believe its also an attempt to look at both sides of the issue.

  132. Nathan K / Jul 2 2013 10:52 pm

    “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” – Marianne Williamson

  133. compassioninpolitics / Jul 7 2013 8:21 am

    Apolegetics search on Archieve (aka books & essays on Apolegetic)

    I’m not sure to what extent this includes ancient/classic Christian writings (aka the canon). You may want to do independent searches for those.

    St. Thomas Acquinas, Augustine, etc..

  134. compassioninpolitics / Jul 7 2013 9:46 am

    There are a number of other resources on the Archieve.

    This is on neuroscience:

  135. compassioninpolitics / Jul 7 2013 9:53 am

    Determinism type stuff:

    He also has a book (there may be some scientism stuff in there) & has an info philosopher entry

  136. compassioninpolitics / Jul 8 2013 3:33 am

    I would probably file this under Christian-ish stuff:

    Some free audio downloads from Christian type literature–not necessarily Christian proper.

  137. compassioninpolitics / Jul 8 2013 4:02 am

    Possibly interesting–the Spirituality of Science

    Q-Ideas may also have other interesting stuff (aka the main website)

  138. compassioninpolitics / Jul 8 2013 4:11 am

    Possible Ministry Resources:

    Not sure what the basis of this list is but its pretty extensive, unfortunately they haven’t linked to many scholars:

    Also, the site itself is Calvinist, but with a seeming rejection of Natural theology–otherwise interesting. (or at least thats what their natural theology link would suggest)

  139. Nathan Kets / Jul 8 2013 9:54 pm

    Issues at a Glance:

  140. Nathan Kets / Jul 9 2013 8:30 pm

    Not “resources” in the traditional sense–but a list of Apolegetics Events (a Calendar)

    Speaker list for a symposium:

    This is on the philosophy of science (from an academic perspective, not necessarily a Christian one):

  141. Nathan Kets / Jul 9 2013 9:19 pm

    I’ve heard this is a bit more fundamental than the (so-called) Josh McDowell school of apologetics:

    Although they can certainly work together.

    The former is more philosophical–probably more difficult for people outside philosophy to grasp in some instances. Although to me the cultural/worldview debates seem to be pretty easy to follow (but I’m not per se objective in this regard by any scope of the imagination)

  142. Nathan Kets / Jul 9 2013 9:27 pm

    Islam Apologetics (public facing):

    Islam Apologetics (Academic college audience):

  143. Nathan Kets / Jul 16 2013 8:55 pm

    Explorers Class for Christian Coaching

    Christian Coaches Magazine:

    Should probably include more general resources on Christian Coaching.
    * This is an e-commerce site. I think its run by Tony S, whose products I’ve had a good experience with (I think I have 3 or so of his books I purchased on Amazon).

  144. Nathan Kets / Jul 17 2013 4:19 am
  145. Nathan Kets / Jul 17 2013 4:31 am
  146. Nathan K / Jul 18 2013 2:41 am
  147. Nathan K / Jul 18 2013 6:26 pm

    This is philosophy (probably shouldn’t be filed under Christian–except as it relates to the background for theology or the overlap). Also, I’m not sure about the ideology of the author:

    The first link I believe is to actual works.

  148. Nathan Kets / Jul 19 2013 5:25 pm

    Possibly interesting…

    It also deals with evolution & suggests books which provide ways to cross the science-faith divide.

    Not sure to what extent this might help, but:

  149. Nathan Kets / Jul 21 2013 6:49 pm

    Biblical Counseling Coalition–Recommended books (organized by topic)

  150. Nathan Ketsdever / Jul 24 2013 7:47 pm

    Sermons–specific to NT or OT, etc…:

    I think he has preaching on (almost) every book of the Bible. He’s from a Baptist background.

  151. Nathan Ketsdever / Jul 25 2013 9:09 pm

    Interesting perspective from Donald Miller:

    I think this argument could be used to broadly to run over existing doctrine grounded in text.

    A little bit on the other side (kinda):

    Some people would also suggest reading about “authority of Scripture”

  152. Nathan Kets / Jul 26 2013 6:25 pm

    Interesting–RE: Christian response to the Bachelor for Daughters/Women

  157. compassioninpolitics / Aug 9 2013 3:46 pm

    Proofs of Gods Existence:

    I’ve included this mostly because of the Bibliography suggests a couple different options (ie books with 10 and 12 reasons).

    Resources for answering cults:

    It may be more useful to seek out specific answers to specific cults. However, perhaps this can be an added resource.

  166. compassioninpolitics / Sep 26 2013 1:58 am

    Theologian Pages–with PDF documents. Very interesting.
    Not sure if there is a theological bent–in terms of inclusion. I think the publisher is an Anglican.

    Curious about weight (priority) or the context that applies to each of these.

    What do we mean when we say “tradition” in this context?

  188. Nathan Kets / Dec 22 2013 4:04 am

    Seems like they have a number of commentaries available too:

  189. compassioninpolitics / Dec 24 2013 5:32 pm
