The Apostolic Theology Book is Finally Here!



The first several hundred copies of Apostolic Theology, the book, are, as we speak, winging their way to over 40 countries on 6 continents. Those who pre-ordered a copy in the UK might well have received it already (and if you haven't, you should before the end of this week), although overseas readers might need to wait a wee bit longer for delivery.

And, if you hadn't pre-ordered a copy, but would like to get your hands on one, then click on www.apostolictheology.org/book where it's now available to order. To launch the book there's even a discounted price between now and 31st October. So, if you want to save £6, now is the time to buy!

It's a big book, and so obviously it costs the Royal Mail a bit to deliver, but we're doing our best to keep postage costs down. That means we're offering free postage and packaging in the UK (and the Channel Islands and Isle of Man), and substantially discounted postage rates to the rest of the world. (However, if anyone wants to order multiple books from another country, it's probably best to get in touch as it can sometimes be possible to organise sending bigger parcels of multiple books for cheaper than paying the per book postage rate.)

Thanks again to everyone who's helped out with the project, and thank you to everyone who had pre-ordered books for your patience through the delay when we had to get the books reprinted. I hope people enjoy reading, and that the Lord uses the book to build people up in the faith and bring glory to Jesus.

These are the Bones of Elisha (Declaring the Word of the Lord)

One of the most curious events in all of Scripture is found in a single verse in 2 Kings 13. That chapter records the death of the prophet Elisha, and yet, there’s still one more story of Elisha here some time after his death. 2 Kings 13:21 tells us:
So it was, as they were burying a man, that suddenly they spied a band of raiders; and they put the man in the tomb of Elisha; and when the man was let down and touched the bones of Elisha, he revived and stood on his feet. Elisha was dead. And yet when a corpse was thrown into his tomb hastily in an attempt to hide from marauding bands of Moabites, the man came back to life simply by his corpse touching Elisha’s bones. Even as miracles go, that one’s quite impressive.

On the Church and On Sin: With a (former) Tory MP and a Catholic Priest

What with the Extraordinary Synod going on in Rome this week, the Roman Catholic Church has been in the news a bit of late. And as a result of all this pre-synod hype in the media, two Roman Catholics wrote two of the best articles I read last week. One was an article in the Catholic Herald by a priest. The other was an article in the Spectator by a former MP. You should read both of them. (But if you're not going to read both, then please at least read the second one!)

Now, maybe that seems a bit odd. I am, after all, both a Pentecostal pastor and an Ulster Protestant. And as such, I'm convinced that very significant aspects of Roman Catholic theology are seriously wrong. I still believe that justification by faith alone is the article on which the church stands or falls. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't read, and even learn from, Roman Catholics. Although we are justified by faith alone, it is by faith in Christ alone, not faith in the right formulation of the doc…
