The Biblical-Christian View of Ultimate Reality: God – An Excerpt from The Essentials of Christian Thought
Christians disagree on doctrine, politics, church government, certain moral questions—just about everything under the sun, it can seem. Yet a unity remains, centered around a core outlook on God and the world that is common to all believers.
In today’s excerpt from The Essentials of Christian Thought, eminent theologian and church historian Roger Olson outlines a biblical vision of this ultimate reality—God, the sole absolute, the metaphysical source and sustainer of all that has being.
At the heart of every metaphysic, every vision of ultimate reality, lies something absolute, something believed to be the source and/or connecting center of all that is. By absolute, here is meant only “unsurpassable” in terms of explanatory power; it is whatever…

The World is a Battleground—Both Literally and Figuratively – An Excerpt from The Essentials of Christian Thought
In today’s excerpt from The Essentials of Christian Thought, eminent theologian and church historian Roger Olson explains what leads to confusion and accommodation to nonbiblical, non-Christian life and world perspectives.
The Biblical-Christian Perspective on the World
The world is a battleground—both literally and figuratively. Here both senses are in view. First, conflicting worldviews and metaphysical belief systems see the world as radically different things. And that can make a great difference in ethics. How we should treat nature, and all that is in it, for example, can depend very much on what we believe it is. One theory about the environmental crisis lays the blame for the rape of nature by human industry at the feet of Judeo-Christian religion;…

What Does God Call You? (Acts 2:39) – Mondays with Mounce 275
In Peter’s sermon on the eschatological outpouring of the Holy Spirit, he says this. “The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call (προσκαλέσηται)” (NIV).
There are two problems with this translation. (1) It does not particularly make sense. Call what? (2) Why is προσκαλέσηται middle?
The point, of course, is to point out the scope of God’s salvation. Joel has already said that “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Acts 2:21); that is the human side of salvation. Now, in v 39, is the divine…
Do Not Quench the Spirit! – An Excerpt from Practicing the Power by Sam Storms
In Practicing the Power, pastor and author Sam Storms offers practical steps to understanding and exercising spiritual gifts in a way that remains grounded in the Word and centered in the gospel.
In Today’s excerpt, we learn how we as Christians often quench the Spirit, as well as how we can welcome the Spirit’s work in our churches.
There are numerous metaphors and analogies employed by the biblical authors to describe both the nature and ministry of the Holy Spirit, the three most common being wind, water, and fire. When it comes to wind, one thinks immediately of our Lord’s words to Nicodemus and the mysterious way in which he brings new birth to spiritually dead sinners (John 3:7–8).
When the apostle…

“There can be no higher Christology than that.” An article by the late Verlyn Verbrugge
In 2014 we asked our friend and teammate Verlyn Verbrugge this question: How might a pastor or teacher find value in the New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology and Exegesis? Verlyn later passed away in 2015, and we miss him. Before he passed, Verlyn wrote the article below. This article first appeared in the free NIDNTTE Primer, but we’d like to share it here for wider readership. -The Zondervan Academic Team
My goal is to shape people’s lives, not by “5 easy steps to achieving (fill in the blank),” but by the same way people in Bible times grasped the life-changing concepts of God’s Word.
