Detroit Baptist Journal includes my article on Watts’s trinitarian problems and my review of The Benedict Option

Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary just released volume 22 of their journal, and it includes two contributions from me:

“Was Isaac Watts Unitarian? Athanasian Trinitarianism and the Boundary of Christian Fellowship”

In this article, I explore whether or not the well-known English hymn writer, Isaac Watts, became Unitarian as some claim, and I use the narrative of his trinitarian struggles to make a few larger points about necessary doctrinal boundaries for Christian fellowship and the power of hymns.

Review: The Benedict Option by Rod Dreher

In my review, I show how what Dreher is proposing is not all that radical; it’s merely Christian. I conclude, “If we want to be effective missionaries in the unbelieving culture—and we should; it is the mission Christ
gave us—then we need to first recover what it means to be Christian. This is the heart of the Benedict Option.”

Go give them and the other articles and review a read!
