Fred Sanders on Calvin on Union with Christ

Fred Sanders writes some terrific stuff.
Here, he unpacks one paragraph in Calvin's Institutes.
I hope this note helps me to find his article again!

How Jesus Became God - or How God Became Jesus

Rob Bowman's review of Bart Ehrmann's latest book (and Mike Bird and colleagues' response) is well worth reading and whets my appetite to read the books themselves.

James Anderson on the importance of Adam as an historical individual

Did Adam exist? Or is he a myth? More and more folk today say that there never was an Adam and Eve, both those who don't believe the Bible is God's Word, but now, also folk who say they do.

I like what James Anderson has to say on most things, at least the bits I understand! 

In this article, James gives twelve reasons why "an evangelical view of the Bible commits one to the existence of Adam as a real historical individual."
