Flotsam and jetsam (11/5)

My own position is quite clear on this, that I have supported women Bishops in print and in person. I’ve spoken in Synod in favour of going that route, but I don’t think it’s something that ought to be done at the cost of a major division in the Church.

I propose in contrast that God is “kenotically” or self-sacrificially infused (not by divine loss or withdrawal, but by an over-generous pouring out) into every causal joint of the creative process, yet precisely without overt disruption of apparent “randomness.”

The title of “America’s Greatest Theologian” is pretty universally ceded to Jonathan Edwards, and after him there is a tight race for “Second Greatest.” In my opinion, Warfield is a contender for that second slot.

Free audio books from Amazon

Audible.com, Amazon’s audio-book company, is offering two free audio books if you sign up for a 1-month trial of their service. (I’d tell you how much it costs after that, but I didn’t bother to find out. I always cancel before the trail period runs out.) It looks like they’ve got a really good selection. So, if you have any kind of commute (like I do), this could be a good opportunity to pick up some new books for the road.
