Unsolicited comment from Kenya

I just received an email from a man in Kenya regarding ECLEA. Here is what he said:

"May I take this precious time to thank you for the tireless effort you are putting in to equip leaders who will then equip the Church through ECLEA COURSES. I must mention that indeed it has been a spiritual oasis to us."

Thank you, Samuel, for taking the time to write.

New sermon on ECLEA website

Last Sunday I preached on 1 Cor 7:17-24. The title of the message is "The Primary Versus The Secondary." In essence, Christ is primary; our circumstances are secondary. As we take into ourselves who Christ is, what he has done for us, who we are in him, and what we have in him, our lives can be profoundly transformed.

Both the audio and a PDF of that message are available on the "Sermons" page of the ECLEA website:  http://www.eclea.net/sermons.html

New review of Biblical Eschatology

While I was in East Africa, a lengthy review of my book, Biblical Eschatology, appeared on the blog "Spoiledmilks" by Spencer Robinson, a Bible teacher who lives "across the pond." After summarizing the book chapter-by-chapter, he concludes:

It’s a tall book, and Menn packs a punch. He holds to Amillennial eschatology, and he argues it well. Many will be challenged by this book, and they should be challenged. Some parts are dense, yes, but I was surprised at the clarity (mentioned above) in which Menn writes. There were some issues I had to read a number of times (especially the bit about the “‘first’ resurrection” and the “‘second’ death”), but I can say that I have a clearer view of the Bible’s overall structure. . . . This is a book that you will come back to for a long time. It’s long. There is a lot to read. There are more Bible references than you can shake a stick at. Menn has done his work, and this book will require a lot of prayer. Highly recommended.

He also posted a similar, albeit not identical, review on Amazon, here: http://www.amazon.com/Biblical-Eschatology-Jonathan-Menn/product-reviews/1620325799/ref=cm_cr_dp_see_all_summary?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1&sortBy=byRankDescending
