October 24 2016 By dvirtue IMPOSSIBLE PEOPLE: Christian Courage and the Struggle for the Soul of Civilization

First, there has often been a tendency toward a false and unbiblical specialization, so that spiritual power came to be seen as limited to certain people, rather than all Christians, and to certain places, rather than anywhere God's people are present. "They," the saints as special people, are obviously the gifted and anointed ones, and "we," the rest of us who are not so gifted and anointed, can then delegate our responsibility to them, with relief.

July 30 2016 By dvirtue THE NEW CIVIC RELIGION

November 18 2015 By dvirtue J.I. Packer: An Evangelical Life

This is, as the description says, an appreciative biography, written by someone who knows Packer and who has long been an admirer. In that way it is quite typical of other biographies of still-living individuals--it describes the subject's life and influence, but without much emphasis on his weaknesses.

August 04 2015 By dvirtue REFORMATION ANGLICANISM: Biblical -- Generous -- Beautiful

The author quickly dismisses the myths surrounding the origins of the church during the reign of Henry VIII and his wifely problems, arguing that the Church of England goes all the way back to Jesus Christ and the apostles.
