Review: Future Men: Raising Boys to Fight Giants

Future Men: Raising Boys to Fight Giants Future Men: Raising Boys to Fight Giants by Douglas Wilson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a very good and useful book. Looses a star (it would have lost only half a star, were that possible) for its somewhat cavalier usage of the Bible, with some minor occurrences of eixegesis, that is, taking (Biblical) texts out of context and giving it unwarranted interpretations.

Sets a high standard for raising boys. I do feel I fall short, and pray God will supply my many faults in raising my son.

Review: Vestígios da Trindade: sinais de Deus na criação e na experiência humana

Vestígios da Trindade: sinais de Deus na criação e na experiência humana Vestígios da Trindade: sinais de Deus na criação e na experiência humana by Peter J. Leithart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Reviſão de minha tradução. Fiquei menos crítico quanto ao texto e quanto a minha própria tradução neſta terceira leitura — uma lendo mesmo, outra traduzindo e agora reviſando. Deu para apreciar melhor o uſo de imagens e analogias, e contextualizar melhor as partes que me incomodaram na primeira leitura.

Review: Traces of the Trinity: Signs of God in Creation and Human Experience

Traces of the Trinity: Signs of God in Creation and Human Experience Traces of the Trinity: Signs of God in Creation and Human Experience by Peter J. Leithart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A very intriguiŋ, challengiŋ text. Could not avoid þinkiŋ it ſeemed to ſide wiþ Grudem & Pipe againſt Trueman & Jones, but I could be wroŋ; anyway, its point is ſo much bigger & loftier ðan T&J’s miſreprentative vendetta!

Eßentially, it argues for the Univerſe declariŋ not only God’s glory, but more ſpecifically the Trinity’s mutual indwelliŋ glory.

Review: Biblical Exegesis in the Apostolic Period

Biblical Exegesis in the Apostolic Period Biblical Exegesis in the Apostolic Period by Richard N. Longenecker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A very technical but intereſtiŋ analyſis of how ðe early church, but ſpecially ðe apoſtles & evangeliſts, dealt wiþ ðeir Scripture, namely ðe Hebrew Bible (ðe Proteſtand Old Teſtament), but alſo apocryphan & pagan texts; &, at ðe very end, how is ðat relevant to ðe modern church. From an Evangelical, text-critical (¡but not high-critical!) perſpective.
