Learning How to Think Biblically– Part Two

Ben Witherington - Bible and Culture - Mon, 03/23/2015 - 02:21

Learning How to Think Biblically— Part One

Ben Witherington - Bible and Culture - Sun, 03/22/2015 - 02:59
One of the real differences between proper Biblical orthodoxy and cultish behavior is that when it comes to leadership the former works by persuasion and dialogue, and the latter works by dictatorial tactics, mind control, smoke-filled room decision making from above, and of course the claim ‘the Spirit told me to say or do X’ [Read More...]

Best Books– Part Six

Ben Witherington - Bible and Culture - Sat, 03/21/2015 - 02:35
It’s nice to be able to commend some of your contemporaries and their good serious scholarly work. One such contemporary is John M.G. Barclay, the current Lightfoot Professor of Divinity at Durham. John was at Glasgow before that and trained, if memory serves, at Cambridge. His first major book immediately got him all kinds of [Read More...]

Suspicion– Part Two

Ben Witherington - Bible and Culture - Fri, 03/20/2015 - 02:21
The world of academia is a bit like a circus. There are main acts and side shows. There are barkers drawing attention to themselves, and others who are not on ego trips at all. There are actually truth seekers, but their are also job seekers. There are careful scholars and careless scholars. There are scholars [Read More...]
