A Few Highlights from ETS
I spent the last week in New Orleans, LA at the Evangelical Theological Society meeting. It is always nice to see old friends and meet new ones. I did not spend a fortune on books, though I did make a short [wish] list. Its always hard to be away from my family, especially now since we just recently had our third child. I am thankful for a very faithful and loving wife.
Here are a few highlights from the meeting that I thought was worth sharing:
(1) Al Mohler and John Piper were involved in a panel discussion on the “Common Word Between Us” effort to bridge Muslims and Evangelicals theologically. Below is the audio:
- Muslim Perspectives on the Writing of “A Common Word”
- Christian Defenses of the Yale Response to “A Common Word”
(2) Owen Strachen live-blogged Bruce Ware’s presidential address on the humanity of Christ. Owen did a superb job. I cannot imagine trying to live-blog an address like this.
(3) Speaking of Owen Strachen, he also introduced me to Bible Mesh. While many of you, like me, have probably seen this new teaching tool recently mentioned on popular Christian blogs, I wanted emphasize the value of it. I would encourage you to spend some time and explore their website.
