Across the sea and around the world 06

1. I organized mission trips and I recommend Vinoth’s post: Who says ‘no’ to ‘mission trips’?

2. Everett Ferguson’s lecture on the Wheaton Center for Early Christian Studies conference this year: Why study early Christian history and literature?

3. The latest Teaching the Bible e-pub from the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL).

4. Cool series: Paul in Critical Contexts.

5. New paper from Mark D. Nanos, a Jewish Pauline scholar: ‘Callused,’ Not ‘Hardened’: Paul’s Revelation of Temporary Protection Until All Israel Can Be Healed.

6. Free e-books at the Book Depository. Some interesting finds:

a. G. K. Chesterton.

b. Martin Luther.

c. Leo Tolstoy.

d. Apologia Pro Vita Sua, by John Henry Newman.

e. Dialogue Concerning Natural Religion, by David Hume.

Once upon a time, book titles were not economical at all:

f. Observations Upon the Prophecies of Daniel, and the Apocalypse of St. John, written by the same guy who described the three laws of motions. Isaac Newton (scientists really like to decode things, huh?).

g. An Enquiry into the Obligations of Christians to Use Means for the Conversion of the Heathens. You know the author. Yep. The book that drove modern Western mission. William Carey.

h. The Practice of the Presence of God the Best Rule of a Holy Life, by Brother Lawrence.

i. The First Blast of the Trumpet Against the Monstrous Regiment of Women, by John Knox. You know. The guy who invented the Presbyterian church.
