This past weekend I took part in a conference at St. Thomas’s Episcopal Church in Whitemarsh, PA, sponsered by St. Thomas and the Center for Biblical Studies and by a generous gift from the Philadelphia Theological Insitute. The conference was on Making Sense of the Old Testament. The main speaker was Old Testament theologian Walter […]

The next day, […]
….NOOK. And here’s the link to prove it. Just thought some of you would like to know.
David Williams has posted the video from the symposium Biblical Faith in an Age of Science; Adam & Eve, Evolution, and Evangelicalism that took place on the campus of NC State on April 12. David is the campus minister for InterVarsity’s graduate and faculty ministries at NC State and Meredith College. A while back I also linked […]
