As we enter the time of year when the Church has traditionally emphasized the Cross of Christ in its preaching and teaching, I want to refer you to two articles I have written that may be of interest to you, especially at this time of year. The first is a new article, just published, and is entitled, "The Judged Judged in Our Place." The article is developed from ideas that came to me when reading through a section by the same name in Karl Barth's Church Dogmatics IV.1. The second article, "The Humility of God," was published at this time last year. This article is inspired by Barth's statement that "it is just as Godlike to be humble as to be exalted." Both these articles have been published in the Plain Truth Magazine. They are written for a general audience (non-theologians), so I hope you will read them and share them with others. To read the articles, look in the right-hand column of this page and click on the appropriate title under "Articles."
