This new article is insightful: Laughlin, Bryan, and Doug Ponder. “Complementarians and the Rise of Second-Wave Evangelical Feminism.” Sola Ecclesia, 26 February 2024. Here is one of my takeaways from the article (the below table is my own synthesis but in line with the article by Laughlin and Ponder): Four Views on Hierarchy and Complementarity Hierarchy Complementarity 1. Biblical patriarchy / broad, thick, or natural complementarianism 2. Narrow, thin, or ideological complementarianism * ** 3. Egalitarianism / evangelical feminism (initially) ** 4.

How I Got Stronger with Strength Training (with Advice for Beginners)
Andy Naselli – Thoughts on Theology
by Andy Naselli
6M ago
Today with God’s help I joined the 1,000-pound club—the total pounds for 1 bench press + 1 squat + 1 deadlift. 250 pounds (bench press) + 340 pounds (squat) + 440 pounds (deadlift) ______________________ = 1,030 pounds (total) A lot of men can lift way more than that. (Arnold Schwarzenegger recently shared, “My best bench press was 525, my best deadlift was 710, and my best squat was 610.” That’s 1,845 total pounds.) Lifting 1,000 total pounds isn’t hard for super strong guys, but it’s a milestone for me. I’m 43 years old—about 6 feet tall and 200 pounds. And I didn’t start strength trainin ..read more

Here are my publications that released in 2023—plus some books I endorsed. (I prepared this list so that I can conveniently link to one post.) As I explain in the article “Three Reflections on Evangelical Academic Publishing,” I aim to be academically responsible more than academically respectable. The ultimate reason I research, write, teach, and shepherd is to glorify God by serving Christ’s church. Books Tracing the Argument of 1 Corinthians: A Phrase Diagram. Bellingham, WA: Logos, 2023. Dictionary of the New Testament Use of the Old Testament. Edited by ..read more

Twelve Reflections on Twelve Interviews on Christian Nationalism
Andy Naselli – Thoughts on Theology
by Andy Naselli
6M ago
David Schrock—along with either Trent Hunter, Brad Green, or Steve Wellum—recently conducted twelve interviews about Christian nationalism for Christ Over All. I copied the transcripts of those twelve interviews into a Word document, and that document is 200 pages single-spaced. That’s a lot to sort through. After listening to the twelve interviews and reading the transcripts, I offer the following twelve reflections or observations in this article: Naselli, Andrew David. “Twelve Reflections on Twelve Interviews on Christian Nationalism.” Christ Over All, 27 November 2023. Here are the twelv ..read more

In this new book, I invite you to hike up a mountain with me: Andrew David Naselli. Predestination: An Introduction. Short Studies in Systematic Theology. Wheaton, IL: Crossway, January 2024.

Later this month I plan to reflect on the interviews on Christian nationalism. But first I am attempting to add some clarity by framing ..read more
