The Trinitarian Father is not another work by an expert father to the rest of us — no, it’s better than that. Rather than offering his own wisdom, Uri Brito guides fathers through the whole biblical sweep of our Heavenly Father’s … Continue reading
I have published my little essay The Trinitarian Father via kindle. And at this moment it seems to be doing quite well earning a #6 spot under “Christian Youth Ministry.” Go ahead and download yourself a copy for $0.99.
With the publication of The Church-Friendly Family in September, I have finally fulfilled one of my great dreams. This blog has become a great place to throw ideas, sermon manuscripts, and a host of other thoughts. In terms of readership, I have … Continue reading
I have always enjoyed reading my good friend, R.C. Sproul Jr. over the years. He is witty, sharp, and biblically astute. So I am glad that he has joined Kuyperian Commentary as Special Contributing Scholar. Here is his first post.

Born on August 30th, 11:52PM:
We are headed to Monroe, LA for the twelfth Auburn Avenue Pastor’s Conference. I am looking forward seeing some old friends.
One of the many purposes of going to Monroe in early January was also to be a part of the examining committee of Faris Paxton. Faris did a fine job answering questions thoroughly and pastorally. May God grant Faris mercy … Continue reading
With 2011 in its genesis, this also means lots of new projects for this blog. A few reasons to check this blog often: First, I have the great goal to read 52 books this year and provide a video review … Continue reading

Our second night at the hospital has been quite eventful. We had many visitors and some great gifts as well for little Ezekiel. The four hours of sleep have done us some good. My mother arrived from Brazil yesterday and … Continue reading
My first night here at the hospital with my wife and our new baby was quite peaceful, though I look forward being back on my own bed. The nurses have been very friendly and gracious. Mommy and baby are doing … Continue reading

I remember walking into Chuck Hill’s office at Reformed Seminary. It looked lovely and romantic with books scattered in the most unlikely of places. Dr. Hill is a genius. He can afford to be a bit eccentric. I am no … Continue reading
A long, but satisfying Tuesday. I began the day quite early going over some of my notes for my class on the Psalter. Having done some previous work (sermon and lesson) on Psalm 23, I re-arranged a few notes and used them … Continue reading
As I sit down in my office I am staring at hundreds of books on the floor. They–that is the books–all desire an eschatology of hope. They want to be raptured into a shelf and neatly ordered according to author … Continue reading
Early tomorrow I will be flying to Altoona, PA. It has been almost ten years since I last visited Altoona. I attended a small high school while living there for a year. In those days, a Georgian 73 year old … Continue reading
I am always encouraging people to start their own blogs…so, when I found out that my old college friend Craig Hurst started one I had to plug it. Here it is!
Here it is… Book Description: The baptism of Jesus by John the Baptizer is one of the theologically richest narratives in the Gospels, touching the transition from the old to the new covenant, the doctrines of water and Holy Spirit … Continue reading
