As my regular readers have noticed, I’ve been in quite the blogging lull over the past few months. My wife and I moved to Austin from Dallas, TX this past summer, to be an active part of Austin City Life. This transition of sorts has proven to be an indescribable blessing in our lives, marriage, and mission. God moved us away from our comfortable and busy lives into an (un)comfortable and missionally busy community. God is good. Jesus is being formed in us more and more. We are grateful, and will continue to share more about what Jesus is doing more personally here.
As my seminary days come nearer to a close, I’m prepping myself to write a thesis on a particular topic relating to one or more of Jonathan Edwards’ Works. I find it fitting to streamline this process by working out some ideas through this blog beginning in 2011. So, in January, The Two Books will morph into an (almost) exclusively Jonathan Edwards web log. After all, The Two Books is a very Edwardsean concept. Edwards thought, wrote, and preached deeply and passionately on the idea that God reveals himself to his creatures through two books–the literal book of Christian Scriptures, and the metaphorical book of Nature.
I hope you will join me in this delightful study.
