Endnotes: Introduction to Part 3

  1. The analogy of cricket was suggested by Del Tackett in the second lecture (“Philosophy and Ethics: Says Who?”) of the DVD series The Truth Project (Colorado Springs, CO: Focus on the Family, 2006). He tells a similar story to make a different point.
  2. Disclaimer: It is, of course, presumptuous to make the claim that one is setting forth the definitive statement of “God’s design for {whatever}.” Only Holy Scripture can legitimately make such a claim in a literal sense. So what I am explaining is my understanding of his design. And given the limitations of space, I have had to be content with a survey. My hope is that I have gotten enough of it right to provide a starting point for others who don’t have the time or resources to conduct their own original study.
