/
It’s been several years since I have taken time to write anything other than Tweets about Fundamentalism, but a new book and a blog post piqued my interest recently. When I saw that Dr. David Beale, under whose teaching I greatly benefitted as a college student and afterward when he’d come to speak here, had...

The Devil (and God) is in the Details

/
 This article is adapted from Bryan Murawski’s book, “Preaching Difficult Texts of the Old Testament” (Hendrickson, 2021).
