    [quote user="Denise"]A canon normally begins with a group, and what they consider authoritative (by someones). This volume has it backwards. They start with modern idealogues, and (have yet) to identify 'who' might use that 'NT'.

  • Re: A new New Testament?

    Back when this collection came out, my father took me to a "Jesus Seminar on the Road" presentation with Dr. Hal Taussig where this volume was promoted. My opinion is that like just about everything that comes out of the Jesus Seminar, the PR is grossly overstated and much of their talk that theirs was THE scholarly view is a simplification, that in

    [quote user="Damian McGrath"] Fascinating that "Mariology" is situated under "The Person and Work of Christ". [/quote] Is not the Council of Ephesus's declaration that Mary is the "Mother of God" a Christological statement? Does not Ineffabilis Deus give Christological reasons in the center of the definition of Immaculate Conception?

  • Re: The first protestant

    From what I understand, the "easy" answer is that the term "Protestant" comes from the protest made by the Evangelical Princes after the Diet of Speyer in 1529. In the view of the "Protestants" the Diet in 1529 where the Emperor was not present improperly set aside a ruling of the Diet of Speyer of 1526 where the Emperor was there. The ruling in question

  • Re: Lexham Survey of Theology - feedback

    Like Sine Nomine, the first portion I looked at to see theological bias was in the sacrament section. In my case, I started with Baptism to see how it fits with my Lutheran understanding. I do not mean to engage in theological discussions, which indeed would be against the forum rules. But to critique the Logos resource, I offer the following: The initial

    [quote user="Rick Ausdahl"]Wow! I've been doing a study of Genesis 1, and have read through many, many pages in several commentaries. I'm impressed with how well this commentary has taken all the various views and arguments I've been reading through on verses 1-3, and synthesized them clearly and neatly into just a few paragraphs.

    Yes it has for me. But I have been having lots of re-indexing, and so assumed that was it, and it would be fine once it stops wanting to rebuild the index just about every time I load.

    I got on the Christmas Special CD's about a dozen years ago. I found it to be decent set, but have generally not used it after my library grew and I had other sets. Pulling up Gen 1.1-2, we get this treatment: The Beginning of Creation (1:1–2) The Bible begins with a statement unlike that which can be found in any other known creation story (including

  • Re: Detailed History of Southern Baptist?

    [quote user="Justin Gatlin"]Fun fact, according to a prof I had in undergrad (secular). Protestant as "one who protests" doesn't come from the reformers, but from the RCC. It probably means "pro testari," for the testimony. So it was the Papists versus the Protestants. Those for the Pope versus those for the Scriptures. [/quote] A bit of a zombie thread

    Good catch! Not new for me since it evidently was in some base package I have had over the years, but they could be useful for some. That say, be aware that the Episcopal Church USA changed from this Sunday Lectionary to a version of the Revised Common Lectionary. That said, the 3 year Sunday Lectionary above for free is quite significant historically

  • Some random initial impressions of the Logos 8 packages

    For a while I was one of the more vocal Lutherans here – although I admittedly have not been active here lately. Since L8 has rolled out, I have looked a bit at the Lutheran packages… As a word of background, I describe myself as an over-educated lay person. I do not have, and never had a teaching office at any Lutheran church. That said

    Please forgive me if I get really basic here. Since I don't know you and your background, I cannot get visual cues about when you get it, and so abbreviate what I am going to say... The Church Year is dominated by two big festivals - Christmas and Easter. Christmas is on a fixed date - December 25 here in the west. Easter, however, is based on a simplified
