Forgive Us Our Debts

Chris Cox and Bill Archer have written an unsettling piece for the Wall Street Journal about the sobering reality of the US Debt. Though some may be familiar with the $16 trillion figure, there are few who realize that this is actually just the tip of the iceberg. According to the article, the true number […]

The Magnificent Dane: A Tribute to Rod Rosenbladt

Way back when, Kim Riddlebarger introduced me to Rod Rosenbladt, one of his professors at Simon Greenleaf School of Law.  Twenty-five years later, here we are still doing “theology on tap” together at the White Horse Inn.  I can’t calculate the gifts that God has given me through the magnificent Dane over these many years.

WHI-1129 | The Gospel According to Isaiah, Part 2

Part of the Israelites’ new responsibility after the Exodus from Egypt was to serve “eviction notices” to the pagan nations then occupying the land. Over time, however, God’s covenant people disobeyed him and eventually became indistinguishable from their pagan neighbors. Through the prophet Isaiah, God responded to this unfaithfulness and told his people they too would soon be evicted from the land. The hosts continue their exploration of the book of Isaiah and discuss how God begins to reveal more about the coming messianic deliverer, not only through Isaiah’s words of judgment and condemnation, but also through promises of comfort and grace.

No Lines, No Midnight Openings

Last year, my wife and I braved the Black Friday madness–at Walmart, of all places. It was a study in dystopia. I have never seen so many people so desperate for so little. We did have a shopping list, but it became apparent very quickly that people watching was a far better use of our […]

WHI-1128 | The Gospel According to Isaiah, Part 1

What was the role of an Old Testament prophet, and how are we to interpret this kind of literature in our own day? What are the particular themes and messages that the prophet Isaiah addresses? How are the blessings and curses mentioned throughout this prophecy related to covenants already established? How is Christ revealed throughout this book? The hosts will deal with these questions and more as they begin a new six-part series on “The Gospel According to Isaiah.”

What Is Work?

As one of our faithful readers was perusing the current issue of Modern Reformation, he came across this sentence in the Geek Squad section: Refracted by/through the Fall, the cultural mandate is no longer holy work.  It is profane though legitimate and common and valid for all creatures created in God’s image. This raised a bit of […]

Review of A Hole in Our Holiness

The following is by Rev. Andrew Compton, associate pastor of Christ Reformed Church in Anaheim, CA. Rev. Compton is one of the bloggers at The Reformed Reader I recently read Kevin DeYoung’s latest book, The Hole in our Holiness: Filling the Gap between Gospel Passion and the Pursuit of Godliness. I had two reasons for […]

WHI-1127 | Exploring Covenant Theology

What is covenant theology and why is it crucial for our overall understanding of Scripture? How does covenant theology relate to our understanding of law and gospel? What is the difference between the Abrahamic and Mosaic covenants? On this edition of White Horse Inn, Michael Horton will discuss these important issues with Mike Brown and Zach Keele, authors of a new book, Sacred Bond: Covenant Theology Explored.
