As 2010 comes to a close, it’s a good time to reflect on the last year’s worth of blogging.

This last year, I’ve attempted to write some essays concerning theological method and the inter-relationship of doctrines and theological disciplines, while adopting the framework and using the tools/insight of Cornelius Van Til’s Presuppositional Apologetics and John Frame’s Multiperspectivalism.  The inter-relationship and the coherence of how all things come together has made me have a deeper desire to stand at awe at God for the coherence of His truth.

I hope to continue further exploration and writing in this vein unto next year, as this is a growing interests of mine and I have much to grow and know in the Lord.

Here are the essays that I’ve attempted to go further indepth than my usual blogging posts, in my exploration for 2010 thus far:

2.) Book Review: Vern Poythress’ “Symphonic Theology- Thought it was important to review an important introductory work to Frame’s type of Perspectivalism written by a capable colleague.

4.) A Critique of Process Theology’s Epistemology and Doctrine of Revelation- The relationship between one’s epistemology and doctrine of revelation provides an avenue to critique the foundation for Process Theology’s theological positive statements.

5.) A Swift Refutation of Sander’s Open Theism: Eternal Security in Heaven in light of Libertarian Free Will and Epistemic justification of future events- Refuting John Sander’s Open Theism by exploring his perspective on Libertarian Free Will, God’s knowledge of the future and his view of the believer’s eternal security.

6.) The Inter-relationship between eschatology and Apologetics: Implications for Apologetics and Eschatology- The relationship between the two are explored.

7.) The Basis for Religious Language in light of the Holy Spirit- Exploring philosophy of religious language in light of biblical pneumatology.

8.) A Critical Evaluation of Peter Enns’ Theological Method in his formulation of the Incarnational Model of Scripture- Taking account Enns’ theological method such as his model of coherence and relevance, his goal for the construction of his bibliology and other precommitments is a fruitful to explore the faults of Enns at a foundational level.

9.) Enns and Ancient Near East Literature: A Case study in his interaction with the Egyptian Tale of Sinuhe- Exploring a specific case study of Enns use of ANE record, discussing ‘genre-calibration’ that is built from the foundation of the previous essay on Enns theological method, and applies the earlier critique to a specific example of what Enns sought as ‘evidence’.
