one of the best books i've ever read.

Hi there fellow Wisconsinite...

I read that book several years book, and I found it very good as well.

I just finished reading "The Prodigal God" by Timothy Keller

I particularly liked some of the insights he gave about the Elder Brother, and the Father (in the biblical story of the prodigal son).

"Violent Prayer - Engaging Your Emotions against Evil"...i think by Piper...is a great book about prayer.

Some I've read once. A few I've read more than once. Most I've skimmed a chapter of two and set aside for later.

I liked Yancy's book, "Prayer" and "Soul Survivor", I can't read too much of Yancy at once, because he is a melochoy and I am not. But I need to read him to relate to the moody and brooding types in my life.

I'm reading The New Birth by David Bernard for the first time! Which is kind of funny since I like discussing doctrine so much. I'm halfway through chapter 2.

I'm also reading John Murray's Like Christ.

A_PoMo,

Does he go back to the early church Oneness (modalists) believers or does he start in the early 20th century?

Since you've been to seminary, I was wondering if you knew of some good articles or a book on this subject:

Quote:

Theology on the use of the word kurios in the NT compared to the usage of the name YHWH in the OT. The NT appropriates the OT's use of LORD (YHWH...not ELOHIM) and uses the greek term Kurios with the force of the OT Yahweh.
I read this statement in different forum from another poster after I had asked someone who does not believe in the deity of Christ to explain Romans 10:13 in the light of Joel 2:32. Do you know of a work on this subject that is not too technical in the original languages or at the very least can explain them simply in layman's terms? I want to delve a little further into what I already understand from my reading of the word of God. :)

Dodging snowflakes should be fairly easy for me to do, since I now live in Georgia :irule

LOL, my Mom was talking to my sister yesterday, and my sister mentioned that the kids were out of school, a Snow day.

Those were so much fun as a child! But now all I could think of, was having to get to work in all that snow...then having to shovel! ugh!
