Don Brake & The King James Bible – Personal Stories

We all know by now that Dean Emeritus of the Seminary Dr. Donald L. Brake has been busy publishing and speaking during this, the 400th anniversary of the KJV Bible.

It's interesting to wonder why someone would take such a liking to the subject - recently some short essays on the matter were published by the man himself. So, we'll let his words speak for him.

A while back we stumbled across a
Q & A article at www.insidehighered.com with the author of a book about the increasingly close and connected relationship between parents and their college students. Among the topics discussed are the issues surrounding being close with children while also letting them grow up. It can be a tenuous balancing act. Toward the end of the article there are some decent tips that may help parents and students better navigate this stage in life together. Read the rest of this entry »

This morning (Monday, March 29, 2010) The Oregonian newspaper published the story on the front page! It is also today's "Editor's Pick" on the home page of www.oregonlive.com.

Last Friday (March 19th) at 10:20 a.m. the 15,000th book was entered in to the library database. And, probably in honor of Dr. Garry Friesen who's been running the program, the final book was "Mere Christianity" by C.S. Lewis!

The Oregonian Photos taken by one of their staff photographers turned out really well too. Be sure to go to the story on OregonLive to comment and share it via the buttons at the bottom of the article.

Still Donating To Haiti Earthquake Relief

Multnomah students raised over $2000 for Haiti earthquake relief during the week of the Global Ministries Conference. (And we're sure the dollar amount is much higher now - but we weren't able to confirm exactly how much at time of posting).

Haitian Seminary Collapses

Bruce and Cindy McMartin, grads of Multnomah, teach at a seminary in Haiti which recently collapsed because of the earthquake. All funds collected will be sent to help them.

There have been reports that there are around 5000 people camped out on a campus that holds roughly 200 students! There is no place to use the restroom (save for holes they've dug), medical supplies run out fast, and food/water supplies run short.

Burying Dead Students

And more disturbing than all of this is that we've heard reports that they even had to bury some dead students on the campus grounds because there was no other place to put them.

Now, try to imagine all of this on the Multnomah campus - but with far fewer resources!

Consumer Christmas, Dr. Metzger, and USA Today

USA Today referenced Dr. Paul Louis Metzger and M.Div alum Tony Kriz in today's opinion blog. The article, written by Tom Krattenmaker, is titled:

"You Can't Buy The Real Gifts Of Christmas"

Consumer Christmas TreeA Metzger Quote

Here's our favorite quote from the story:

"Many thriving prosperity-gospel churches appear to have thoroughly embraced the American ideal of upward mobility and material well-being," Metzger says. "It makes one wonder if these churches' leaders think Jesus was a savvy entrepreneur on the rise, who would have become rich had his career not been cut short."
