A Woman’s Response to Rachel Held Evans’ "A Year of Biblical Womanhood" – Index

February 6, 2013

Obviously, my dear readers know perfectly well that I’m not a woman. Nevertheless, a woman who will remain anonymous (at least, that’s the plan) to my dear readers kindly volunteered to write a response to Rachel Held Evans’ “A Year in Biblical Womanhood.” I edited this response and posted it to this blog in installments. The following serves as an index to those responses.

Introduction Section


Bonaventure in English – Index

August 17, 2011

I cannot fully recommend the works of Bonavanture, sometimes referred to as “the Seraphic Doctor.” Some people have speculated that Bonaventure serves as one of the links between Augustine and Calvin in terms of Calvin’s doctrines of grace. I have not found very many English translations of Bonaventure’s works, and only one English biography of Bonaventure, at least among those works that are freely available. I would be delighted to expand the index below, or to revise it if some of the works are pseudo-Bonaventure (he was popular enough that there are a substantial number of pseudographic works bearing his name).

Therefore, please don’t think that the following is an exhaustive list of his works, or even a list of his works that has been thoroughly checked to confirm authenticity of authorship. Likewise, I cannot fully endorse the theology or liturgical practices of the 13th century Italian we know as Bonaventure.


1) Christ: the One Master of All (English and Latin)

2) The Journey of the Mind into God (English and Latin) (English only txt alternative)(English only html alternative)

3) The Soliloquies of St. Bonaventure

  • Four Mental Exercises
    • How the soul by mental exercise ought to reflect the beams of contemplation to those things that are within her, that she may see (How formed by nature, deformed by sin, and reformed by grace)
    • How the soul by mental exercise ought to convert her contemplation to things external, that she may know (How unstable earthly wealth is, mutable worldly excellency is, and miserable worldly magnificence is)
    • How the soul by mental exercise ought to convert the beams of contemplation to things below her, that she may understand (The inevitable necessity of man’s death, the formidable authority of final judgment, and the intolerable pain of eternal punishment)
    • How the soul by mental exercise ought to convert the light of contemplation to those things that are above her, that she may know and understand (The inestimable value of celestial joy, the unspeakable delight, and the interminable eternity)
  • Treatise, “A Bundle of Myrrh,” concerning The Passion of Our Savior
    • Of our Lord’s praying in the garden, and of his taking
    • Of the mocking of him before Annas, and Caiaphas, and Peter denying him
    • Of his crowning and crucifying
    • Of the things which were done whilst Christ hanged on the cross, and of the giving up of his Spirit, Christ hanging on the Cross thirsteth
    • Of the things which were done after his death hanging yet on the Cross
    • Of the seven seals opened by the passion of Christ
    • Of the resurrection, ascension, and sending of the Holy Ghost

4) The Life of Saint Francis (copy 1)(copy 2)(copy 3)

  • Of the manner of life in the secular state
  • Of his perfect conversion to God, and of the repairing of the three churches
  • Of the founding of his religion, and sanction of the rule
  • Of the advancement of the order under his hand, and of the confirmation of the rule already sanctioned
  • Of the austerity of his life, and of how all created things afforded him comfort
  • Of his humility and obedience, and of the divine condescensions shewn unto him at will
  • Of his love for poverty, and of the wondrous supplying of his needs
  • Of the kindly impulses of his piety, and of how the creatures lacking understanding seemd to be made subject unto him
  • Of his ardent love, and yearning for martyrdom
  • Of his zeal and efficacy in prayer
  • Of his understanding of the Scriptures, and of his spirit of prophecy
  • Of the efficacy of his preaching, and of his gift of healing
  • Of his sufferings and death
  • Of his canonisation, and the translation of his body
  • Miracles wrought after his death
  • Concerning the power of the sacred stigmata
  • Of the dead that were raised
  • Of them that he delivered from the peril of death
  • Of them that were saved from shipwreck
  • Of them that he set free from bonds and imprisonment
  • Of them that were delivered from the perils of childbirth
  • Of the blind that received sight
  • Of them that were delivered from divers diseases
  • Of them that did not observe his feast, and that failed in reverance toward the saint
  • Of certain other miracles of divers kinds

"Debate" with Norman Geisler Regarding Ergun Caner – Index

July 22, 2010

Given the wide latitude that Dr. Norman Geisler has given Dr. Ergun Caner in using the word “debate,” I don’t think that Dr. Geisler can reasonably complain if I now claim to have “debated” Norman Geisler on the topic of Ergun Caner. It’s not a real debate, and I’m not claiming it is, but there was some interaction. Here’s an index of the interaction.

1) (Geisler) Norman Geisler’s Alleged Comments
2) (TurretinFan) Response to Norman Geisler’s Coments
3) (TurretinFan) When can We Expect our Apology?
4) (Geisler) Further Comments from Geisler
5) (TurretinFan) Dr. Norman Geisler Digs Himself a Deeper Hole
6) (Geisler) In Defense of Ergun Caner
7) (TurretinFan) Intro to Response to Geisler
8) (TurretinFan) Response to Geisler Regarding Caner Part 1
9) (TurretinFan) Response to Geisler Regarding Caner Part 2
10) (TurretinFan) Response to Geisler Regarding Caner Part 3
11) (TurretinFan) What Dr. Geisler Overlooked
12) (Geisler) In Further Defense of Ergun Caner
13) (TurretinFan) Rebutting Norman Geisler
14) (TurretinFan) Is Lying a Moral Issue?
15) (TurretinFan) Has Norman Geisler Acknowledged that Lying is a Moral/Ethical Issue?

Although, of course, there was a lot of work that went into this interaction with Norman Geisler (from both sides, I imagine), I think it would be unwise and misleading to go around saying that I “have debated Norman Geisler” (or for Dr. Geisler to say the same about me). That’s why I have “debate” in quotation marks in the title of this post.


One Year Until the End of the World

May 21, 2010

The subject of this post is the message I found in my inbox earlier today. The message reminded me that Harold Camping has, based on complex series of calculations, predicted judgment day to be May 21, 2011. I have already attempted to show a number of problems in Mr. Camping’s theology, and rather than rehash those problems, I’ll just provide links to the relevant posts below:

1) “Lucifer” and Angels’ Names

2) More not Less Church as the Day of the Lord Approaches

3) ISI Discussion Regarding Harold Camping

4) Four Hundred Thirty Years Series
a) Camping Jenga
b) How Then Four Hundred, Thirty Years?
c) From Seventy to More then a Million?
d) 430 Years from the Promise – A Response to Fred Butler

5) Camping and the Atonement

6) Surprising Wisdom from Harold Camping

I have no idea how many of Harold Camping’s listeners on the Family Radio network read this blog, or whether they will hear and listen to me before May 22, 2010.

Bryan Cross – Index Page

February 15, 2010

Now that I’ve responded (and hosted responses from Pastor David King) to Bryan Cross of the Roman Catholic blog Called to Communion several times, it seems fitting to create an index page for easy reference to interactions with him. As with all index pages, I will try to update the page and I may date bump the page according to my plan (not yet implemented) to group all of the index pages at a particular time period for easy reference.

1. Response to Bryan Cross’ Misuse of Jerome (David King)

2. Debunking “Natural Necessity” Argument (and other arguments) against Sola Scriptura (TurretinFan)

3. Demonstrating the Inevitable Flow of Communication (and consequent interpretive role) to the Individual (TurretinFan)

4. A Distinction in Principle between Sola Scriptura and Solo Scriptura (TurretinFan)

5. Principled Distinctions Again – This Time in a More Narrower Category (TurretinFan)

6. The Distinction Gets Yet More Narrow (TurretinFan)

7. Examining John 17 and Christian Disunity (TurretinFan)

8. Arianism is Consistent with Scripture? (TurretinFan)

9. Is the Magisterium more Sufficient than Scripture? (TurretinFan and David King)
