A revamped site. I have blogged for some 25+ years and enjoyed the discipline of putting down a few thoughts on a regular basis, and through the responses I have received in the various comments I have been enriched. I have always sought to present what I write as 'a perspective' and certainly not as the final word.
My personal interest is in how faith in Jesus can impact society, and in particular the ‘gates‘ of society. The Christian faith clearly makes an impact personally – we are called to follow Jesus personally, but that faith has public implications. The Gospel is ‘good news’, precisely because Caesar is not lord, nor any would-be dominating Caesar. The title ‘Lord‘ is given to Jesus because of how he lived. He was not humble and obedient to death so that now he can be dominant, he emptied himself (kenao) as he was in the form of God (not 'in spite of' or 'although'), and he continues as the servant for all. Jesus reveals God - God is 'Jesus-like'. Discipleship calls us to engage with our society.
I guess my core interests are two-fold: biblical theology and the practical outworking of our faith. I initially wrote four small books in 2020 which were termed 'Explorations in Theology'. I valued the response I had from those as I engaged with people on various Zoom calls. The feedback was invaluable. I thought I might write a few more volumes, but decided that I could serve better by releasing random pdf-based extended articles (booklets) that could be downloaded. I also make available 'Open Zooms' that will look at a theme - theological or practical. Details: Open Zooms. The revamping of the site is to coincide with the various developing areas.
