Calvinist, a soon-to-be released documentary by Les Lanphere is about a new generation discovering the rich theology brought to us by the Reformation.
Tim Keller, Russell Moore and Kevin DeYoung how the Church can subvert the cultural narrative of sexuality that has shifted rapidly over the last few years.
Heidelberg Catechism Song Curtis Allen was challenged to write a song based on Kevin DeYoung’s book entitled, The Good News We Almost Forgot: Rediscovering the Gospel in a 16th Century Catechism which took an in-depth look at the Heidelberg Catechism. Watch the video to hear the fruit of that effort… brilliant. HT: The Heidelblog
Just started to read Kevin DeYoung’s review of Brian McLaren’s book, A New Kind of Christianity: Ten Questions That are Transforming the Faith. He had been criticized along with Ted Kluck after writing Why We’re Not Emergent for not being charitable in their criticism of the emergent church movement. In explaining how he was going […]
Kevin DeYoung and Ted Kluck, co-authorrs of Why We’re Not Emergent by Two Guys Who Should Be, recently wrote another book (haven’t read it yet) called Why We Love The Church: In Praise of Institutions and Organized Religion. Steve had posted the following video promoting the book. I’m not saying that local churches don’t have […]
1. Is there a reason why the Census Bureau needs to be in the White House rather than the Commerce Department? Does this stink to anybody else? Do we really want Rahm Emmanuel involved with counting heads? Let’s not politicize the Census Bureau. 2. Debunking Darwinism – the first post in a 12-part series at […]
1. Just wondering if other states are doing this, but Alaska is looking to divest Alaskan money in Sudan in response to Darfur. All states should look at taking stands against genocide similar to this (if they haven’t already). (HT: Conservatives for Palin). 2. R.C. Sproul of Ligonier Ministries writes “Secularism: Ignoring the Eternal” – […]
In the last eight years evangelicals have been blasted as being beholden to the Republican Party. Some of that criticism has been fair, some has not. I find it curious that for some younger evangelicals and those who align themselves with the emergent church in an effort to “find balance” that the pendulum has swung […]
From Why We’re Not Emergent (By Two Guys Who Should Be) in the chapter entitled, “Modernism: The Boogeyman Cometh”, Kevin DeYoung states: The biggest irony about the emergent church may be just this: For all their chastisement of all things modern, they are in most ways thoroughly modern. Many of the leading books display a […]
Picking back up with my reading of Why We’re Not Emergent (By Two Guys Who Should Be) by Kevin DeYoung and Ted Kluck, DeYoung discusses the position (if they so be so inclined to allow themselves to be boxed in) many emergent church leadership hold regarding orthodoxy and orthopraxy. DeYoung points out that historically, Christians […]
Following up on my post regarding spiritual pilgrimages, and how the emerging church views “journey.” It seems to many emergents that journey is more important than the destination. There is a desire to know truth, but it seems like finding it definitively is something that is discouraged. In Why We’re Not Emergent (By Two Guys […]
Following up on my last post based on my reading of Why We’re Not Emergent (By Two Guys Who Should Be), Kevin DeYoung wonders are the pilgrims making any progress? Emergents talk much about being on a journey. How is this different than the old notion of a spiritual pilgrimage? DeYoung writes: The old notion […]
I just started reading Why We’re Not Emergent (By Two Guys Who Should Be) by Kevin DeYoung and Ted Kluck. Kevin DeYoung, a 30-year-old pastor at University Reformed Church in East Lansing, MI, says that he often becomes frustrated with the emergent church “we’re just in conversation” mantra that can be a crutch that is […]
