History and BiographyIt seems that George Marsden's excellent (and massive) biography of Jonathan Edwards has now been abridged into a shorter version. From now on call this one Lil Edwards (160 pages) and the former award winning volume Big Edwards (640 pages)
On ScienceAlmost three years ago I preached a message entitled "Space" at the Inversion Fellowship. It was a fun night contemplating the vast creativity of God as seen in the universe. We showed a video clip that night...and had some massive technical difficulties. The video was a special feature from the DVD The Privileged Planet. Looks like someone has embedded it online in flash. It is an awesome video which displays the biblical understatement: As high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him - Psalm 103:11 - You can watch the video on this blog here.
Matt Chandler is now blogging and will no longer be mocking bloggers...here were his reasons for not entering the blog world:
- I have plenty to do already and don’t want any new tasks.
- I am not sure that writing is a strength of mine.
- I don’t want to debate with a hyper fundamentalist from Idaho who thinks that because I don’t use the King James I am leading people to hell. (If I got a letter from that guy you know he’ll find me online.)
- Last but not least, I desperately want to continue to make fun of blogs and bloggers. If I enter the blogosphere then it would be hypocritical to continually mock them.
