miscellanea

Well…

Our laptop died last week, so I don’t have consistent internet access for the time being.   

I appreciate those of you who have braved the length of the last few posts in order to post comments and discuss issues of history, tradition and pneumatology. 

It has been sitting on my shelf for about four years now, but I’m finally around to reading D.H. Williams’s Retrieving the Tradition and Renewing Evangelicalism: A Primer for Suspicious Protestants.  What a fantastic book!  Williams’s chapter on the great apostasy theory and the various “successionist” theories of church history is worth the price of the book.  For class, I’m busy this week reading books 5-8 of Origen’s Contra Celsum and On Prayer

I’m also working through C.H. Dodd’s The Apostolic Preaching and Its Developments.  Has anyone else here read this?  Thoughts?  It was the subject of a harsh review in Ron Halbrook’s The Doctrine of Christ and the Unity of the Saints, which piqued my interest.

More soon…
