What am I studying this semester?

For those interested, here is what I'll be doing for a lot of the time between now and sometime after Christmas. It's the big, bad, 3rd year so modules are big and bad (in a good way) too - consequently there's only room for three a semester.

Hebrews and the General Epistles in Greek: Final attempt to do serious CPR on my Greek, taking in the scenery in Hebrews and 1 Peter along the way.

The Doctrine of God: A whole module simply trying to read, understand, digest, compile and apply what the bible has to say about the One it's really all about in the first place. After all, the chief end (i.e. main goal) of man is to glorify God and enjoy him forever.

Evangelical Public Theology: So, what does believing 'Jesus Christ is Lord' mean for engagement with public life (politics, education, media, art etc.)?

Pretty good huh?

Ah, now I miss college.

Don't fall for any of that lily-livered principled pluralism stuff in Public Theology.

Neil, college misses you too.

I'm doing the seminar on 'Media', so if you've any thoughts or book suggestions let me know.

I think anyone at Fieldy's address at the public theology day in May would find it hard to defend principled pluralism in any sustained way surely?
