The following is a list those authors I enjoy reading (in no particular order):
Luke Timothy Johnson
Craig S. Keener
Robert H. Stein
C. S. Lewis
David Alan Black
Henry Cloud and John Townsend
The list goes on and on.
The explanation of gnosticism for 1john was very clear. Thanks. I will use it as a resouce for my Sunday school class.
In an effort to make a good blog a better one, I would suggest you correct the spelling of Tolkien’s name.
Craig Evans and N.T. Wright would be good additions to the list.
