New Review of James Anderson’s “What’s Your Worldview?”

What's Your Worldview

James Anderson, Associate Professor of Theology and Philosophy here at RTS Charlotte, has written a wonderful little book entitled What’s Your Worldview?.  Over at Reformation 21, Gabriel Fluhrer has offered a very positive review. Although there are many books on the topic of worldviews (maybe too many), Fluhrer argues that Anderson’s is unique. He says, “Anderson’s work might be the best brief worldview book to date.”

He concludes his review:

In the end there is very little to criticize in Anderson’s work, even if one is not a Christian.  Those who hold to any one of the twenty or so worldviews Anderson scrutinizes will find their

Great Review of Doug Kelly’s New Systematic Theology (Vol. 2)

Systematic Theology

Doug Kelly, the Richard Jordan Professor of Theology here at RTS Charlotte, has just released the second volume of his fantastic systematic theology series: Systematic Theology (Vol. 2): The Beauty of Christ–a Trinitarian Vision (Mentor, 2014).  Although one might think there are enough systematic theologies out there, this volume (and its predecessor) are genuinely unique.  In particular, Dr. Kelly engages the patristic writings with a level of detail that is unmatched by other volumes.  Thus, Kelly roots his theological discussion deeply within the context of church history.

This very point was made by Robert Letham in a great view of Kelly’s book that just came out on The

My Review of Peter Enns’s New Book “The Bible Tells Me So”

The Bible Tells Me So

Pete Enns has just released his latest book, The Bible Tells Me So: Why Defending the Scripture Has Made Us Unable to Read It (HarperOne, 2014).  It’s quite a bold piece of work, with a lot of serious claims about the role and purpose of the Bible.  Endorsers of the book include Rob Bell, Rachel Held Evans, and Brian Mclaren.  Tony Campolo also offers a blurb, but qualifies it with the statement, “[I] have some problems with what he has written.”  Given that Campolo is no fundamentalist, this is a telling statement.

Another telling statement is the inside flap of the book cover which states, “In The Bible Tells Me

New RTS Charlotte Women’s Bible Study on Romans

Lloyd Jones

In the mid twentieth century, Martin Lloyd-Jones preached through Romans on Friday at night at Westminster Chapel in London.  Before it was all done, his series spanned 11 years and 372 sermons.  Now those sermons have been gathered together in a commentary series on Romans which is one of the finest available. I highly recommend it.

Although I don’t have plans to remotely challenge Lloyd-Jones epic series in Romans, this Fall we began a new study of Romans here at the RTS Charlotte campus.  It is a Wednesday morning Bible study for women in the Charlotte community.  I had the idea for this study a few years ago as I …
