Two more stops on the Blog Tour

Two more reviews are in.

Adam Nigh at Out of Bounds (read here)

One of the great strengths of this book … is the rejection of any dichotomy between theological reflection and Christian practice, between the intellectual and the moral, between doctrine and life. That is signified in the title: not just our initial justification but the whole scope of our lived faith needs to be understood by reference to the being, character and gracious work of the triune God.

Chris Woznicki at Think out Loud has another addition to his multi-part review, this one on Willimon’s chapter, “Preaching” (read here)

One thing that I really appreciated about this chapter is the importance Willimon places upon the task of preaching. Nowadays many people tend to see preaching as superfluous or as belonging to a bygone era. But according to Willimon this should not be so. A primary way that the Christian life is formed and sustained is by preaching...Life with a loquacious God demands disciplines of listening.

  1. Kent and Kyle, I’m finally getting a (desk) copy of this. It might be a good fit for dealing with the spiritual formation side of a Christian ethics class. I’m excited to read it! -Steve
