Here are some recent posts I found of interest and one a little disturbing:
Terrance Tiessen offers some helpful definitions of four- and five-point Calvinists.
Zondervan announces New Studies in Dogmatics. A projected 15-volume series in constructive theology. It has an impressive list of contributors.
Paul Adams offers a nice quote and some helpful thoughts on creationism versus traducianism.
Roger Olson offers a list of “approved denominations.” A comment was made that he did not include any Catholic or Orthodox churches. Catholic Frank Beckwith responds why Olson was correct in doing this.
