What a Postmodern Literary Theorist Taught Me about Biblical Authority

Postmodern literary theorists are favorite whipping boys in evangelical hermeneutics textbooks, and Stanley Fish is no exception (although Fish prefers the title “antifoundationalist”). This makes Winning Arguments, the latest book from the former New York Times columnist, an unlikely book for evangelicals to pick up. But as with all of Fish’s oeuvre, this new book might as well be titled Under the Sun; it’s a profound exploration of the vanity of life a la Ecclesiastes—and it clarifies biblical authority by deconstructing pretty much all others.

With summer just months away, wedding season is almost here. And as a wedding planner, I have spent the last few weeks meeting lots of brides and grooms.

A Simple Method to Keep Track of Notes and Resources During Sermon Prep

sermon notes

Recently in the gym, I watched a trainer utilize a weight machine in an unorthodox fashion to focus on one small muscle. Then, I overheard him tell his client, “I like to use this machine in an unconventional way so it does what I need.”

That’s the sentiment in this week’s post. In Logos Bible Software, the Clippings document is officially designed to assist with the writing of papers in an academic setting. We can, however, use it in an unofficial, practical way to store data to be used in a message or lesson.
