The reduced Justin Martyr

Justin Martyr was getting just a bit tedious over at Evangelical realism, so we hit the fast forward button and hit the highlights of something like 9 chapters in one post. If you’re a Justin Martyr fan—or perhaps if you’re really really not a fan—you might enjoy it.

Five years ago today

Over at Evangelical Realism, I’m taking a break from Justin Martyr due to a time crunch at my day job. To fill in the hole, I’ve reposted one of my earlier encounters with presuppositional apologetics, which didn’t turn out at all the way the apologist had hoped. It’s the first two of a series of …

See you August 1st…

Hey folks, I’m going to be without reliable Internet access for the next week or so, and that means a temporary hiatus in the postings. I know, it’s cruel of my family to drag me off into the wilderness for a week of relaxation, swimming in the lake, and enjoying fine home cooking. But what …
