“Fostering More and Better Bible Reading”


We all have a particular Bible translation we always turn to. It might be the Bible we grew up reading or it might be a translation we chose after hours of diligent research and thoughtful consideration. But what about all the other translations available to us? Should they be tossed aside?

Abraham Kuyper’s Theology in Practice


In his two massive theological commentaries, Common Grace and Pro Rege, Abraham Kuyper develops a robust public theology, fully addressing the intersection of faith and culture. Too often, theology simply resides in the lofty chambers of academia, without any real connection to the life of the common man. That is why Kuyper’s encounters with Islam during his travels around the Mediterranean are so crucial for a full understanding of his public theology.

The Great Legacy of Charles Octavius Boothe

As the country celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, we are also reminded of other African-Americans who have contributed to the black community and the world through education, ministry, and writing. One such individual is Charles Octavius Boothe (1845-1924).

Boothe was born into slavery in Alabama, but went on to become a pastor, educator, and activist. He established and pastored Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama, which would later be pastored by Martin Luther King Jr. and renamed Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church.

Boothe also helped found Selma University and served as its second president. He was the editor of The Baptist Pioneer, and promoted literacy programs and theological training for black preachers and laypeople. In 1890, to further this mission, he published a systematic theology titled Plain Theology for Plain People. It was his aim for the book that “simplicity should prevail—simplicity of arrangement and simplicity of language” so that even the average sharecropper could understand it.

How to Choose the Right Bible Translation for the Task

What’s the best Bible translation? If you’ve been a Christian for very long at all, you’ve probably heard or maybe even asked this question.

But what if it’s the wrong question?

What if we shouldn’t be asking “Which translation is best?” but “Which translation is best for the task at hand?”

Which English Bible translations are most useful for evangelism? How about for close study? How about for shaking you out of a Bible-reading stupor? How about for reading in big chunks? How about for teaching children and other poor readers? How about for expository preaching? [Read more…]
