Biblical Theology Basics

Timmy Brister, SBTS grad and assoc. pastor at Grace Baptist Church, has done a great service for his congregation and all those interested in learning more about biblical theology.  In conjunction with a study on healthy church membership from Thabiti Anyabwile’s book, What is a Healthy Church Member?, Brister has posted a series of helpful blogs that describe biblical theology (Carson & Goldsworthy), list significant and accessible resources, and even set biblical theology to lyrical rhythm (Shai Linne).

These posts will help you find food for you biblical-theological appetites.  If you utilizes their resources, they will help you read the Bible better and, by God’s grace, make you a healthier church member.   Here are the five posts.

Too Busy Not to Evangelize?

Always probing, Timmy Brister challenges brothers and sisters in Christ to slow down and evangelize. The whole article, “Too Busy Not to Evangelize?”, is convicting. This is the sentence that got me.

The more important we think we are, the less time we will have for people, especially people who are not like us.

Lord, may we like John the Baptist decrease so that Jesus Christ and the gospel may increase. May we slow down to spend time with the people for whom Christ died so that the kingdom of Christ may gain speed in our neighborhoods and around the world.
