D.A. Carson Interviewed on Biblical Exegesis

Video interview with Don Carson by R. C. Sproul on the task of exegesis

RC Sproul interviews DA Carson on biblical exegesis at Ligonier.

Incidentally, Carson’s Exegetical Fallacies is a fabulous study of some of the most common hermeneutical fallacies that exegetes face when interpreting scripture. The book identifies common grammatical, lexical, cultural, theological, and historical mistakes that preachers, pastors and students make frequently.

Colossians Commentaries

A while ago, I put together a quick guide to commentaries on Colossians for the benefit of a newsletter that subsequently never went to print. Here, if anybody is interested, are some very brief remarks on recommended commentaries on Colossians from an evangelical perspective. This list is restricted to technical or semi-technical works: excellent devotional commentaries include R. C. Lucas’ The Message of Colossians in the Bible Speaks Today series and Kent Hughes’ Colossians & Philemon in the Preaching the Word series. Read more »

Smartphone App Makes Book Citations a Snap

From the Chronicle of Higher Education:

A new smartphone application takes most of the grunt work out of citing books in scholarly papers.

Quick Cite, which costs 99 cents and is available for both iPhones and Android-based phones, uses the camera on a smartphone to scan the bar code on the back of a book. It then e-mails you a bibliography-ready citation in one of four popular styles—APA, MLA, Chicago, or IEEE.

HCSB available free for Amazon Kindle (UK only)

The Holy Bible: HCSB Digital Text Edition

The latest release (2010 edition) of the HCSB is currently available for free on Amazon UK’s Kindle site. Take a look at the link below. On my download, there do appear to be a few formatting errors, with spaces missing between words but I’m not sure if this problem is down to my Kindle application, the download itself or the publisher.
