It's been such a busy week I haven't had chance to mention the Evangelical Library Lunch time Lecture last Monday. The speaker was Robert Strivens. We normally tackle historical subjects but this time the LTS Principal looked at the parables and very helpful it was. I won't say more as I think he's doing it with the students soon. We hope to have it online at the Evangelical Library website in due time. A recording is available from the Library. We were in double figures again attendance wise even though it was jalf term. Next one November 28 with Jeremy Walker on Hugh Latimer. Come along if you can.
Bonhoeffer uses a similar phrase 'worldly Christianity'. It's J Gresham Machen that I want to line up most closely with. See his Christianity and culture here. Having done commentaries on Proverbs (Heavenly Wisdom) and Song of Songs (Heavenly Love), a matching title for Ecclesiastes would be Heavenly Worldliness. For my stance on worldliness, see 3 posts here.
