Final Lecture for Asia Center for Advanced Christian Studies

In which I take students through How to Think about Others’ Exegetical Fallacies and then talk through some portions of my dissertation that focused on ἀγάπη (agape) and what it “really” means. No, like, for real this time.

Review: The Passionate Preaching of Martyn Lloyd-Jones

The Passionate Preaching of Martyn Lloyd-JonesThe Passionate Preaching of Martyn Lloyd-Jones by Steven J. Lawson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Earnest, edifying, admirably brief. Doesn’t break any new ground or offer any new insight if you’ve already read Murray’s biography. But a great introduction for those unfamiliar with the Doctor.

Christian Audio provided me a free review copy of this work (no strings attached), and the reader was absolutely perfect: I’m pretty sure he imitated DMLJ’s accent, and I’ve heard the Doctor often enough that he brought me up short several times—I could almost believe I was listening to the man himself.

Born to Die: A Video Reflection on the Incarnation

I had the chance to do a little video meditation on Hebrews 2:10–18, paying special regard to its connections with the Christmas season. It’s part of a much longer series of videos featuring many other evangelical teachers—one for each week of the year. And my video is now up for free on Faithlife TV.

I’ve got two others in the series, one on Eph 5:8–14 and one on Psalm 40:1–11. You can buy the whole thing here.

Dr Mark Ward Jr on Sermon Audio

Untitled-1 copy

It took me 35 years and a terminal degree, but a sermon of mine finally made it onto SermonAudio.com.

In God’s providence, I simply have not had much opportunity to preach to adult Christians (I’ve preached several hundred evangelistic messages). It was a genuine thrill to herald the Great Commandments to a precious body of believers in Edmonton, Alberta.

(By the way, I did not supply the title to this message, but it’s pretty good.)
