Whatever happened to sacrifice?


Not within cloistered walls,
Not in the peaceful glade,
Not in the sheltered home
‘Neath the trees’ spreading shade.
But on the mountain side,
Wind swept;
Crossing the desert bare,
Sun scorched;
Braving the torrent stream.
Out on the battlefield,
Unsheathed His sword.
Here I find my Lord.


An interview with Mark Strom

Tony Payne speaks with Mark Strom about his new book, Reframing Paul, and the issues that it raises.

On the first, you seem very down on systematic theology generally. Can you explain why?
