Two New Books in the Works

In the next few months, two new books will be released from my editorial purgatory and see the light of day. In October/November, my Ecclesiastes commentary will be available. This is one of the earlier Old Testament volumes in Eerdman’s Two Horizons series, the focus of which is theological interaction with biblical texts, not the safe, boring, […]

Paul, Adam, and Evolution

Here is the video of the Erasmus Lecture I gave at Westmont College on February 9, 2011. I haven’t watched it yet, so I am not sure of the quality but it seems to come across well enough. My thanks to Westmont College and Tremper Longman III for inviting me to give this lecture.

Lecture tonight…weather permitting.

I am speaking tonight at Philadelphia Biblical University at 7:00 on “How Scripture is Shaped by Culture.” Let’s see if the weather decides to hold up. It’s been a rough one thus far.

Marilynne Robinson on The Daily Show on Science and Religion

Pulitzer Prize (Gilead, 2004) winning author Marilynne Robinson was on The Daily Show recently plugging her new book Absence of Mind. The five-minute segment was about the proper relationship between Science and Religion. Robinson’s view, which she states very gently, is that the two “should not be at odds.” So why are they? Here is […]

My Response to Al Mohler and the Age of the Earth

Al Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, has argued recently in a public lecture that it is theologically necessary to say that the earth only appears to be old rather than actually being old. Otherwise, a literal interpretation of the first chapter of Genesis is in jeopardy. He mentioned in his presentation the BioLogos […]

Does God Talk to Us Through Fiction?

I had an article posted today in the Huffington Post in their Religion and Science section. I make the point that conservative Christians and New Atheists share fundamentalist assumptions about the Bible that block their participation in the science/faith discussion. I will now sit back and wait for book and movie deals to come pouring […]

NT Wright interview, 4-20-10

I am interviewing NT Wright in NYC tomorrow on camera for BioLogos. Apparently, you can submit questions through Twitter or the BioLogos Facebook page, and we will see what we can get to.

World News Tonight Piece on Waltke and Evolution Airs

You can access the WNT piece on YouTube. As you can see, I am on camera for about as much time as it takes you to sneeze. Still, I am sitting by the phone patiently waiting for movie offers to come rolling in. All kidding aside (was I kidding?), you can see that the story […]

World News Tonight interview over Waltke’s Resignation

I was interviewed yesterday in my home by ABC’s World News Tonight to discuss Bruce Waltke’s resignation from RTS last week. I had a chance to focus on some of the larger issues involved regarding Evangelicals, science, and faith. About two hours with the ABC crew will likely result in about 7 seconds of air […]

Creating Adam

My latest post about Adam is up at BioLogos. My point here is that any way of looking at Adam that does not accept Paul’s view of human descent from a first pair in recent history is “creating” an Adam beyond biblical parameters, and that such creative work is inevitable. My post today fits nicely […]
