Reliability of the Bible:
A close friend and admired professor, Dr. Matt Harmon, recently delivered an introductory lecture on the origin and reliability of the Bible. His excellent notes are available for download: “How Did We Get Our Bible and Has It Been Changed?” Dr. Harmon was one of several guest lecturers at the No Doubt Apologetics Conference that was held in Indianapolis, Indiana this past weekend. So, if you’re looking for a good overview of the formation and reliability of the Bible, then be sure to check out this helpful resource!! Harmon also regularly maintains a blog entitled Biblical Theology. Check out Harmon’s bio at Grace Theological Seminary’s faculty page: Matt Harmon. He is currently working on several publications that will be coming out in the next couple of years, one of which will be a commentary on the book of Philippians.
A “young Timothy-in-the-making” (who has been a great encouragement to me this summer) sent me a link to John Piper’s article regarding C.S. Lewis and Jonathan Edwards on self-admiration. If you’re anything like me, then your pride expresses itself more naturally and frequently than your humility. I highly recommend checking out the article in order to reflect on the continual need for humility: Piper on Self-Admiration.
Blessings in Christ,
