Personality Types and Scholarship (or, “Why are Doug Moo, Doug Campbell and N.T. Wright so different?”)

I hate being pinned down or “figured out” and I’m always skeptical (and a little annoyed) by those who try. However, I must admit that my wife won me over to the Myer-Briggs personality type system. Yes, yes, these things are all flawed, but I have found it uncanny how much it has helped me understand myself and other people. When a new semester begins at CCBCY, we love to try and guess the personality types of each student to better understand them. Maybe this sounds weird, but as an introverted teacher I need all the help I can get!

Review: Encountering Romans (2nd Edition) by Douglas Moo

Encountering RomansDouglas Moo is a veteran and respected commentator, particularly in the area of Paul’s epistles. Having written the esteemed Romans commentary in the NICNT series, he is a natural choice for a guide to this most sweeping of Paul’s letters. I had the pleasure to read the second edition of Encountering the Book of Romans: A Theological Survey in the Encountering Biblical Studies series from Baker, and now it’s my privileged to review it.

How and When Will “All Israel” Be Saved? Moo, VanGemeren, Feinberg & Glaser

One of the numerous difficult texts in Paul’s letter to the Romans is Romans 11:26. What does it mean that “all Israel” will be saved? There are numerous interpretations on this passage: Is this speaking of a mass conversion within the modern nation of Israel? Is this referring to all elect Israelites throughout history? Is “Israel” referring to God’s elect, Jew and Gentile, and thereby saying that God will save all His chosen people?
