New Creation & the Two Wolves Analogy…

April 22, 2009

Besides being one of my new favorite bloggers, Michael F. Bird is an excellent scholar who has an amazing ability to churn out books despite how relatively young he is.  He has a post that is awesome here concerning the two-natures analogy of wolves, which he finds to be inconsistent with the New Creation that has happened in Christians through Christ Jesus.
