Hearing God

I’ve been contemplating reading the Old and New Testaments completely thru 2007, something I’ve never done intentionally through one year.

I’ve been looking at the various plans that the folks at ESV.org highlighted some days ago. I like and plan to use Back to the Bible‘s Chronological One Year Bible Plan.

I’ve decided to do this in the Today’s New International Version using Zondervan‘s TNIV Study Bible, which Barnes and Nobel tells me is ready to pick up when we come back to Baltimore (we’re still in Danville, VA). (I had gotten the TNIV Study Bible, Personal Edition, but returned it because the print was just too small to read comfortably.)

I plan to continue my “Fresh View of Jesus” project in 2007, and have been working through Luke using Joel Green’s fine commentary at Scot McKnight‘s suggestion. I’ve modified my planned approach for this, though. I’m reading and re-reading Luke, Acts, and Romans and plan to continue doing so until I’ve finished treading straight thru the last commentary on Romans. I’ve gotten Ben Witherington’s Socio-Rhetorical commentary on Acts to help me through that book and then plan to attack Romans with Douglas Moo’s work on that book. I plan to do most of this reading in the English Standard Version though I’ve also begun listening to these books in The Bible Experience, which has been just delightful.

mars hill audio review announces:

“Listeners who want a good basic introduction to the ideas of Michael Polanyi (which have been discussed in a number of MARS HILL AUDIO features as well as our documentary, “Tacit Knowing, Truthful Knowing“) will want to take note of a recent book by Mark T. Mitchell called Michael Polanyi: the Art of Knowing (ISI Press). In addition to brief surveys of the key concepts in Polanyi’s thought, Mitchell’s book includes a chapter comparing Polanyi’s ideas with those of Michael Oakeshott, Eric Voegelin, and Alasdair MacIntyre. (And just in case you missed the announcement earlier, “Tacit Knowing, Truthful Knowing” is now available in MP3 download form; see here for details.)” [some links mine]

We had earlier blogged ab polanyi and his significance for the emerging church.

somewhere I had written:

“i think that one of the things that this kind of question brings out is the extent to which the ec really is a conversation that occurs to a large extent online. (i’m not depreciating the potential significance of online relationships).”

Bradley Grinnen
asks:

“i’ve been asking myself this same question for a little while now. [could] you take the lead and help us unpack this? could we start a new conversation about this? [i’m] not sure of the protocol, but i think this is a conversation that deserves length and many views.”

There are four primary contexts for the emerging church conversation in North America (though some of below applies to the worldwide movement) and, generally, each context has its own unique flavor.

I’ll suggest these broad observations with notable exceptions:
