My good friend and fellow teacher at Calvary Chapel Bible College York, Randy McCracken, has just released a book resulting from his 10+ years teaching 1 & 2 Samuel called Family Portraits: Character Studies in 1 and 2 Samuel. This book has a unique blend of academic rigour and devotional warmth. Unlike many character studies, it is firmly grounded in the text and insights spring from in-depth study (rather than imagination and/or speculation).
I have been dwelling on the blessing it is to be part of my church Calvary Chapel York and a teacher at our Bible College. In light of our annual UK Pastors & Leaders Conference (beginning today), I thought I’d share a few reasons why my wife and I love the Calvary Chapel movement. These are particularly true in our church in York.
Another Calvary Chapel Bible College York semester is over, and this one was quite an adventure for Tasha and I. We had our first baby and I taught Introduction to Theology whilst working my day job, the three make for an interesting mix!
Eschatology. For some, it is the icing on the cake of theology; they can’t get enough. Others roll their eyes at the thought of wild-eyed theories, bearded bomb-shell-dwellers, zombie apocalypses, and so on. However, eschatology is important. Rather than simply futile speculation about future events, Biblical eschatology reflects the saving activity and purposes of God.
