Review: Missing Lenses by Tom Holland

What does it mean that we were buried with Christ in our baptism (Rom 6:4)? Or that our baptism freed us from sin (Rom 6:6-7)? These verses have caused me trouble over the years and I’m sure I’m not alone. Does Paul say that baptism is required for salvation? Or are the unbaptised saved but not freed from sin? Usually the answer goes something like this: when you believed in Jesus, you died to sin and were raised to new life, like Jesus, and your baptism at church symbolizes that reality. But what if our radical individualism has caused us two miss something massive in these verses? In Missing Lenses, Tom Holland thinks that we approach verses like this with a wrong perspective that quickly leads us astray. Holland wants nothing less than to reshape how we read scripture and think about our relationship to Christ and his body.

July Biblical Studies Carnival (162)

I am coming out of a semi-blogging retirement to do this carnival. Quick update: I am working several jobs (I’m a pastor at Imprint and publicist for Lexham Press), am in seminary (Western), and with any free time I have left, I am slowly working on a few books. I have a few ideas for the future of the blog, but everything is moving very slowly!
