Eclectic Guitar 2015

Logos Dads Band | 2015 Concert Promo from David Johnson Productions on Vimeo. The Logos Dads' Band is an eclectic collection of musicians associated with Logos School, and some of us even play eclectic guitar. We periodically hold a fund-raiser concert to help raise funds for the music program at Logos School. For some it is just an opportunity to listen to music and donate to a great cause. For others it is more of a cautionary tale -- kids, you need to pay attention in your music classes so that you don't turn out like that. At any rate, we have a wonderful time playing covers from the classic rock era, and our next concert is being held the Thursday night right before the opening of the Grace Agenda. We hope to see you there. … [Read more...]

Some Important NSA News

Lewis Writing

So here is some news that I am kind of whizzed up about, to use the technical phrase for it. After Peter Leithart left for Theopolis in Alabama, New St. Andrews needed to revisit our catalog offerings in our MA program, for the simple reason that Peter had taught a lot of our courses. Now as some of you know, NSA offers an MA in theology and letters, and we have now completed our adjustments to that program. I have accepted the responsibility of directing the MA program next year, and if you click here, and scroll down, you will come to a treasure trove of updated information about our vision for literary theology and theological wordsmithing. We have kept the heart of our program, but we have also made some significant adjustments. The main thing I would like to draw to your attention is the fact that we have placed a line of directed readings through the middle of the MA program, with the result that at the end of two years of study, our grad students will have had the option of … [Read more...]

Intensive Hebrew

This coming May, in conjunction with BibleMesh, New St. Andrews is offering a week-long intensive course in biblical Hebrew for pastors. Further details can be found here. The course will be taught by Dr. Timothy Edwards, just to the right here, whose British accent will not make you learn it any faster, but we guarantee that it will make you think you are. A number of other exciting developments are also percolating at NSA, and we hope to keep you abreast of them all. This is just the first. Stay tuned.   … [Read more...]

A Couple Shameless Plugs

Drake's Flag

So let me explain what happened. Some months ago, my CD player in my truck conked out. Nancy was kind enough to get me a new one for Christmas, which I then had installed. But in the meantime, a bunch of my Mars Hill Audio Journal CDs had backed up into a small pile, so I then went on a Ken Myer binge, which was fun, because in the middle of that, I went down to Monroe where he and I were both speaking at a conference together. Ah, a familiar voice. But, eventually I got caught up. Ken's interviews are where I get many of my ideas for book purchases. So check it out, I tell you. Also during this enforced-audio-hiatus-time, a former student sent me some samples of a project he and some others are working on -- audio dramatizations of some of G.A. Henty's books. So I just finished listening to their production of Under Drake's Flag, and highly recommend it to any of you who have kids who like to have adventures while riding in the car. These productions values are high, and they got … [Read more...]

Basic Christian Living

Basic Christian Living

This coming semester I am going to be teaching an elective at Logos School on practical Christianity. The students will be using a workbook I put together, Basic Christian Living, and which Canon has just published. There are short teaching sections interspersed throughout, along with questions and Scripture references to look up to answer the questions. There are chapters on worship, confession of sin, restitution, contentment, and so on. The point of the book is to help Christian young people learn the basics of Christian holiness. If you are in a position where you want to help a person in such a situation, take a look. … [Read more...]

Chedorlaomer, UT Alum

Sword of Abram

The Sword of Abram just arrived in the warehouse yesterday, and are just sitting there, ready for shipping. The illustrations are fantastic, and though the thing is too big for a stocking, it is not too big to set the stocking on. Here is Chedorlaomer, disgruntled about something that happens in the story. To find out what that is, however, you will have to . . . … [Read more...]
