Here’s this week’s recommended reading, and a great resource as well…
If you don’t have an audio Bible, don’t miss your opportunity to get this great dramatized version of the ESV… FREE!
Dave Dunham has only written two posts in his series entitled “Godliness and Perfectionism“, but I have to say I have already enjoyed reading the first two parts of this series more than any other series of posts I have read this year.
Here’s an important article by Thom Rainer on criticism in the church which all Christians should check themselves against.
For those who are called to creative work, here’s a good article by Jeff Bettger.
I was as surprised as Thabiti Anyabwile to read this, but found it very intriguing to read this post on why W.E.B. DuBois chose not to vote in the 1956.
David Dunham also wrote this great article on one of my favorite bands, Mumford & Sons.
Gay is NOT the New Black– This article from The Gospel Coalition was written by Voddie Baucham and interacts with recent public debate on the issue of homosexuality. This discussion has everything to do with issues in the church at the present time and it is very much worth your time to read.
Worldview,Culture, and Eschatology– This podcast was put out by The Reformed Forum. In light of our current series on worldview, this is a remarkably helpful resource. It is highly recommended. Enjoy!
Lately, when Robie and I meet together in the lobby of our local Tim Horton’s restaurant for coffee, it seems that there is one theme that dominates our conversation—that of worldview. One of the many blessings that God has graciously granted is the companionship of another who cares deeply for the same issues that concern me. What Robie and I have come to understand (and I hope he agrees!) is that discussing the concept of building and maintaining a Christian worldview is of paramount importance! Over the next several weeks, I’d like to take some time and expound upon what John Frame labels as, “The four most important things to remember about the Christian worldview.” However, before all the fun begins, we must do a little work in defining the idea of what it means to champion a “worldview”.
Thought Thinking Itself?: Christianity and Logic– This is an article written by Scott Oliphint who is professor of apologetics at Westminster Theological Seminary and blogger at Reformation21. I found this article to be helpful and actually easy to read, which is usually not the case with anything involving theologians/philosophers and logic! Anyway, I hope you check this out because it can be used for some greater insight into our apologetic approach.
Why We Should Reexamine the Faith of Barack Obama– I originally foundthis article at Credo Magazine, but then it linked me to the fuller story at Christianity Today’s website. Since everything is heating up with the coming election, I thought that this article added some fuel to the flame and is actually an interesting read. I think that the insight that the article provides can be helpful in considering the worldview of our President. Perhaps the most important thing to take away from this article, even if you do not agree with it, is that it is vitally important to consider with a biblical lense what our leaders say and do, and then match it with Scripture.
