Paul Helm's Deep Theology - Blog Style

Justin Taylor informs us that Paul Helm has a blog where he is providing many of his papers. If you don't know Helm, he is a fantastic scholar and has written some excellent books (I have read The Providence of God and some of Faith and Understanding). I have been really encouraged this past year with many professors entering the blogosphere to provide their scholarship to the masses of those who would never read a scholarly journal or attending their seminary class. This is what it is all about. Now, of course, there are some profs who wouldn't dare stoop to converse with such unqualified thinkers on the internet, but I find these guys quickly moving to the periphery and missing a moment where technology and a passion for the truth are coming together to inform and transform people's thinking at a level unprecedented in recent history. With that said, I am really looking forward to reading more from Helm. If you can remember, I wrote a little on anthropopathisms and anthropomorphisms in dealing with the omnibenevolence of God earlier this year. One of the articles Helm already has online is called "Anthropomorphism Protestant Style" and encourage you to check it out. He addresses a wide swath of theologians, including Turretin, Calvin, Edwards, and Bavinck on one hand and Swinburne and Wolterstorff on the other. Helm mentions some future posts, including: "The Calvinist Concept of God" (January) "Three Replies: to Roger Olson, John Sanders and Bruce Ware" (February) "Karl Barth and the Visibility of God" (March) "'No Easy Task': John R Franke and the Character of Theology" (April)
