BULLETINS VOLUME III
Volume 243 in the set, In Praise of Christ Jesus
The Creator, Starkly Superior,
in word, works, wisdom, wonder, creation, and unique
in salvation, love and loveliness.
For Volume II see 242
For Volume I, see 241
January to December 2019
In this third volume of Bulletins, we come to some refinements and developments, some summaries and surveys, often short, but including occasional in-depth treatment, still in kind a summary of much else that has been written. The main topics are creation (9 items), freedom both in God and relative to man (9 items), foreknowledge and predestination (4), the trinity (3).
Major works occur in Bulletin 105 (around 30,000 words) in survey and analysis of METHOD ins biblical Christian Apologetics, and this author's system is covered distinctively, and an assembly of major topics in the way they inter-relate It also brings up to date on major scientific topics, relative to our field. Bulletin 93 exposes a strange departure from the Bible in astronomy, while the nature of various aspects of man, and their genesis from God is considered so that the full weight can be given to a realistic, non-reductionism view of what God has done, unconfused with contrary assumptions.
Special care is given to prevent fallacious combinations of ideas of one model, with those of another, making messy opportunities for logical malpractice. Keeping to what the Bible says, and seeing it in terms of propositions, it is delightful and impressive to see not only a harmony of many concepts never matched elsewhere, but a TOTALLY workable account of the genesis, maintenance and meaning of life and its placement.
This is turn is one more reason to trust the Lord Jesus Christ, the epic centre of Christianity, focus in the Bible and executor of salvation.
From JANUARY TO DECEMBER, see notes below.
