- Myths About the Bible: Was Noah Mocked?: The Fight Against Apathy
This was my most viewed post in 2013, 2014, and 2015. I’ve thought about deleting it a number of times due to the amount it’s been viewed. You know, kill your darlings.
- The Misused Passages: 1 Cor. 2:9, Eyes Has Not Seen, Nor Ear Heard
- A List of Benedicions
This one’s always near the top of the list as well.
- God is Love, But Love is not God
- Charlotte’s Web: Dr. Dorian, Miraculous Webs, Animals Talking
- Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones’ Method of Pastoral Counseling and Diagnosis
This post was a labor of love. It took a good bit of work and was worth it. I regularly refer to it for my own use and point others to it that are in need of help in pastoral counseling.
- C.S. Lewis and G.K. Chesterton: Reading, Fairy Tales, and Mental Health
- Martyn Lloyd-Jones on C.S. Lewis
I put together every quotation and anecdote I could find about Lloyd-Jones’ interaction with Lewis. This was the most viewed post written in 2015.
- On ‘On Lying in Bed’ by G.K. Chesterton
This remains my favorite essay written by Chesterton.
- Him that is Unjust, Let Him be Unjust Still: What Does It Mean?
Post inspired by the Johnny Cash song, The Man Comes Around. I am originally from the same rural county in Arkansas as Cash, and my grandfather and great uncle were childhood acquaintances with him, coming from the same home town in the middle of a bunch of cotton fields. I’m not sure if that’s why I feel such an affinity with him. But I digress.
- The Whole Creation is on It’s Tiptoes
I love Romans 8:19. I preached through Romans 8 for a year and it greatly impacted me.
- The Mind of the Maker, by Dorothy Sayers: Summary of the Argument for a Trinity in Creative Art
This book has had a great impact on me since I read, and wrote about it, in 2012.
- The Difference between a Blink and a Wink
A quote from one of my favorite books, Technopoly, by Neil Postman.
- A Summary of John Owen on the Sabbath
Another labor of love. I put together a lot of material of John Owen relating to his doctrine of the Christian Sabbath.
- Michael Polanyi: Subsidiary and Focal Awareness, Indwelling
I was introduced to the work of Polanyi by an apologetics professor in seminary. I find his work very helpful in understanding the nature of belief, especially in relation to his idea of ‘indwelling.’
