Archive for November, 2017

This is our blog’s eighth year in which we post our recommendations of books as Christmas gifts on the subject of Presuppositional apologetics or the Christian worldview.

Below are links to the recommendations from previous years, and if you are new to the whole thing with Presuppositional apologetics and want something introductory I highly recommend the listing from 2014 which we highlighted in bold:

I know there are many great spiritual things I am thankful for.  But I’m also thankful to God’s common grace in other things as well such as the relative freedom the United States have compared to other parts of the world.

I watched many times this video of the fleeing North Korean defector for the last twenty four hours.  I watched it because it was quite dramatic.  And since this is near Thanksgiving it left me grateful for God’s grace and mercy that I’m in a country where I’m not on the run away from a tyrant that’s out of control.

I don’t want to get too personal but both my parents have fled communism under some very dramatic circumstances.  This made me think about how evil communism is and also thankful to God that my life is so much better because of my mom and my father fleeing two different communist nations.

Vern Poythress. Christian Interpretations of Genesis 1.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, September 20th, 2013. 32 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

This is another work in the “Christian Answers to Hard Questions” series published by Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing.  Here the author Vern Poythress looks at how Christians should interpret the first chapter of Genesis.  Although the author is a New Testament professor I think Poythress is more than capable to write on this subject given his expertise in hermeneutics, linguistics, science and theology.

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. 3 He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows. 6 Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Purpose: Today we shall see the three seasons in our lives in which Christ is our shepherd so that we would trust in Him and have Him as our Shepherd today.

The Lord is my shepherd during ordinary times (v.1-3)

The Lord is my shepherd during difficult times (v.4-5)

The Lord is my shepherd for eternity (v.6)

This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading a few days ago, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is 2 Corinthians 5:11.  Here’s my translation:

Εἰδότες οὖν τὸν φόβον τοῦ κυρίου ἀνθρώπους πείθομεν
Therefore knowing the fear of the Lord we persuade men

θεῷ δὲ πεφανερώμεθα
and we are manifested to God

ἐλπίζω δὲ ‹+ καὶ ἐν ταῖς συνειδήσεσιν ὑμῶν +› πεφανερῶσθαι”
And I hope also in your conscience to be manifested

Here’s some observation:
