As I read through my list of blogs that I frequent each week, I continued to come across posts that I wanted to include in this week’s recommended reading.  I found some to be extremely helpful, while others were just interesting.  Hopefully you enjoy them as well.

 

Looking for a good Systematic Theology textbook?  David Dunham offers a quick description of several leading systematic texts.  David also began a new series this week entitled, “Godliness and Perfectionism.”

There has been much said about this week’s discovery of the Coptic fragment dubbed the Gospel of Jesus’ Wife.  Here, Justin Taylor posted Francis Watson’s six-page analysis of the document.

Greg Laurie posted the third part of his series entitled “Why Jesus Had to Die.”  Here’s Part 1 and Part 2.

Many parents struggle with the issue of neo-Darwinian evolution being taught in schools without any mention of intelligent design.  Here is a parent’s guide to intelligent design and science education, provided by the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture.

This is just cool.  Petapixel.com posted this photo, stating “This is the Most Zoomed-In Photograph Ever Created by Mankind.”

R.C. Sproul Jr. answers the question, “Who Are the Sons and Daughters of Men in Gensis 6:1-5?

Tim Challies continues his series entitled “The Essential,” addressing the sin of pride.

Joe Thorn explains how to pray for your pastor.

Dr. Al Mohler responds to the discovery of a 4th century Coptic document that has received a great deal of attention since being announced by the Smithsonian Institution on Tuesday.

This article is not a justification for myself, especially since I have not turned on our Wii in months.  In this post, Stephen Altrogge rightly identifies that the real problem behind an obsession with video games, or any overindulgence for that matter, is really not a video game problem, but a heart problem.

For those Tolkien nerds out there, like myself, Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit will be in theaters in December.  Needless to say, I am pretty excited!  Here’s a new trailor for the prequel to the Lord of the Rings trilogy…

John Mark McMillan is also one of my favorite musicians.  Here’s “Death in His Grave” from his album The Medicine.

Mark Driscoll posted these two helpful articles, one on church unity and one on division in the church.

John Piper and Tim Keller sat down for a two-part chat on sanctification.
