Some Recent Lectures and Writings
On Tuesday, I gave a public lecture on the topic “Does God Care How I Vote? The Relationship between Faith and Politics” at Providence Baptist Church in Raleigh, NC. You can listen to that lecture on the Providence College Ministry website. I tried to make a distinction between a “Christian vote” and “voting Christianly.”
I also wrote two posts at Between the Times this week. In the first post, I suggested an argument for the salvation of infants based upon my reading of a couple of texts in Revelation. My post was intended to complement an article by Danny Akin and Al Mohler arguing for the salvation of infants, which we had published the previous day. In my second post, I weighed in on a recent controversy over the puritans and slavery.
Baptist Press published several articles on Wednesday to commemorate the bicentennial of Adoniram Judson’s missions to Burma. See the first six articles on this webpage (the sixth was actually written by my friend Jason Duesing back in February, but the others are from this week). Next week, I plan to blog about a new book, edited by Duesing, titled Adoniram Judson: A Bicentennial Appreciation of the Pioneer American Missionary (B&H Academic, 2012). I contributed a biographical chapter to the book recounting Judson’s years as a missionary in Burma.
