Please join us in our new blog

How would you like to wake up every day and learn something new about Christianity? Perhaps theology, Bible study, Church History, or World Missions. This has been the purpose of our blog, the Curious Christian.

We will also be posting some blogs from some of our professors.

And in essence in that model, I try to address the fundamental problem the other models suffered from. What I argued is that those other models suffered from the main problem of trying to ground the authority of canon in something outside the canon.
