Z Books Around the Web - Languages, Theology, and Center Church
Inspired by some advice from N.T. Wright, Abram delves into
the Readers Hebrew and Greek Bible and shares this review.
“I met N.T. Wright briefly in January at a worship symposium
and asked him how to improve my Greek. He said, ‘Read the text, read the text,
read the text.’
He told me to really get the feel of the language. Don’t
think of Greek just as a code for English; get into the Greek itself. I asked
him about reading with a diglot, but he encouraged me to check the English
translation only after reading an entire Greek paragraph, and then, only as
Dave Jenkins at Servants of Grace read Grudem’s Systematic
Theology and Allison’s Historical Theology side by side.
“Historical Theology read together with Dr. Grudem’s
Systematic Theology will give new or seasoned Christians valuable insight and
instruction into what Christians should believe by helping them to understand
what the Bible teaches about the Scriptures, humanity, the future, and more.
Historical Theology will help Christians to understand that they are not the
first Christians to think seriously about their faith, but rather that they
have a rich intellectual heritage that goes back to the early church.”
And finally, Bob Hayton at Fundamentally Reformed and Daniel
Wells at The Aquila Report both engage with Tim Keller’s Center Church.
"I give Center Church a top recommendation. It is the best book outlining the theological
vision and philosophy of ministry prior to determining specifics church models,
ministry programs, and methods of multiplication." – from The Aquila Report
