Link Roundup: Bible Engagement, Peter’s Conversion, and Acts in History

It’s time for another roundup of noteworthy links from around the web! These are just a few of the interesting articles and discussions we’ve run across recently:

Lifeway Study on Bible Engagement: A recent study that focuses on how chuchgoers engage the Bible. Their findings aren’t entirely comforting: “While the majority of churchgoers desire to honor Christ with their lives and even profess to think on biblical truths… few actually engage in personal reading and study of the Scriptures.”

Peter as a process: At the Jesus Creed blog, Scot McKnight lays out the passages from the gospels that recount Peter’s faith journey and asks a compelling question: “When do you think Peter was converted?” Where you pinpoint his conversion might say a lot about your theology!

Summarizing the Gospel in 7 words: I always enjoy reading blog posts like this. There’s a lot you can learn by trying to compact the message of Jesus into a few short words. My favorite from the post: “God sent Jesus to make everything new.”

Apologetics 315 on the historical reliability of Acts: James Hickey takes a look at the historical reliability of Acts, as seen through extra-biblical sources. Looks to be a great resource for digging into studying the historical documents that surround the Bible.
