Tales from the carpenter’s desk, the risk of Bible study, and the Black Swan of Puritanism.
In this episode, I talk about why Jesus never used carpentry in any of his parables, why Tobias Crisp is the “Black Swan of Puritanism,” and why studying the Bible doesn’t necessarily have to have a goal in order for it to be profitable and beneficial. Sometimes God’s just wants us to go to the Word for the enjoyment of it.
