What's New?

June 8, 2024

Lamb of the Free: Recovering the Varied Sacrificial Understandings of Jesus's Death, by Andrew Remington Rillera, takes a deep look at the sacrificial system in the Hebrew Bible, how they are spoken about in the New Testament, and gives us a much more biblical (and beautiful) view of Jesus's life, death, and resurrection than the penal substitutionary theory.

Don't miss my restarted Sonderling Sunday! Playing with language by looking at the German translation of children's books - last week I looked at Der Orden der Seltsamen Sonderlinge and learned how to say "Your plan isn't working" in German.

Happy Reading!
