August 31, 2007

To anyone who has the January 2007 issue of F&P: would you please list the article titles and their authors? I suspect my issue arrived at our old address in Dallas, TX, sometime after we moved. I’m trying to determine whether I’m interested in trying to get another copy sent out or not. Thanks!

The Orthodox Church-A Visual Journey

August 30, 2007

This is a really cool video that I came across. If you have never been to an Orthodox church, this will provide you with a glimpse into the liturgy and practices of church. It is a very beautiful video, regardless of whether or not you are Orthodox. Enjoy!

This is a really awesome learning tool called ivocab which helps you learn Biblical Greek* through visual and auditory learning. You can use this with a # of the current Greek textbooks out there right now (Basics of Biblical Greek, The Elements of New Testament Greek, etc.). To learn more, go to the following website:

Is the Reformation Over: An Evangelical Assessment of Contemporary Roman Catholicism by Mark Noll


My Journey towards the Historical Church

August 20, 2007

In the past 1 1/2 years I have been on a journey towards a more traditional, liturgical community of worship. It all began when I read Simply Christian by New Testament Scholar and Bishop of Durham, N.T. Wright. I enjoyed the read and I had heard much concerning Wright’s scholarship. But why was he, a Protestant, called a “Bishop,” and why did I always see him wearing “Catholic” garb in his pictures?
