As many of you know, the primary purpose for this blog over the past few years has been to review and discuss books. That said, I thought I might try to bring back the Theological Fragments feature in 2017 so there is more than just book reviews here. I believe the last time I ran one of these was in April of last year. I always enjoyed the discussions that would take place on these posts. So without further ado, here are a few fragments of theology. . . theology in small bites rather than an entire post on one topic.
If you didn’t catch The Briefing on Monday you will want to listen to this. There is a lot going on in politics right now as you are all very well aware. What happens however when we see a clash between the politics of populism and the politics of identity? What does this all mean for the Christian? Whose version of the truth are we to believe and does it matter? These are all questions discussed on Monday in The Briefing 01-23-17.

Today at paultripp.com, Paul Tripp shares a memory from his childhood that illustrates how the gospel speaks to the words we speak. Read, The Roots of Words.
I hope you enjoy these fragments of theology. Now, let’s discuss and incorporate them into a fuller theology that speaks to all of life. I’m excited to hear how God uses these to make the gospel come alive.
