Developing Right Thinking (8/29)

It is so critical that we continue to develop right thinking amidst our sinful world.  I’m so thankful for the godly men and women who are diligently addressing the relevant cultural issues.  Each week I come across articles that I believe are worth sharing and I link to them here (usually on Fridays).  I hope … Continue reading

Book Review: ‘Just Do Something’

There are a few men who are such good communicators that I will buy and read what they write regardless of the topic…Lewis, Piper, Hiebert, O’Brien, etc.  Kevin DeYoung (his blog can be found here) is solidifying his place on my list.  Of the seven books he’s written I’ve read three, own three more that … Continue reading

Book Review: ‘Jonathan Edwards: The Great Awakener’

While we were on vacation this week I read ‘Jonathan Edwards: The Great Awakener‘, which is part of Barbour Publishings, ‘Heroes of the Faith’ series.  I’m sure there are many better Edwards biographies out there, but I was looking for something on the shorter end and it was good enough for a quick summary. At … Continue reading

Book Review: ‘Brothers, We Are Not Professionals’

In the introduction to his book, ‘Brothers, We Are Not Professionals‘, John Piper states his purpose in writing, he states: ‘The aim of this book is to spread a radical, pastoral passion for the supremacy and centrality of the crucified and risen God-Man, Jesus Christ, in every sphere of life and ministry and culture…The title … Continue reading

Insights Into Our Culture

I’ve been working through another of Kevin DeYoung’s books and am so appreciative of his thoughtful works and insights into the culture in which we live.  I often feel as though he’s able to clearly communicate biblical truth about a topic or issue I had noticed but been unable to appropriately critique. This time, I’m … Continue reading

Developing Right Thinking…

It is so critical that we continue to develop right thinking amidst our sinful world.  I’m so thankful for the godly men and women who are diligently addressing the relevant cultural issues.  In the past couple of days I’ve encountered a few articles that I believe are worth sharing.  Excerpts from each article are posted … Continue reading

Book Review: ‘The Sovereignty of God’

With much trepidation I picked up A.W. Pink’s ‘The Sovereignty of God‘ about 10 days ago.  I was pretty worried that it would become one of those books I started and then took forever to finish because it was difficult to read and hard to get through.  I was incredibly wrong – this was a … Continue reading

The Design of Prayer

I picked up ‘The Sovereignty of God‘ by A.W. Pink this last week and will probably post a review of it shortly, but in the meantime I wanted to share a few great thoughts he had on the design of prayer – enjoy! “Why has God appointed that we should pray?  The vast majority of … Continue reading

Extra! Extra!

Often, in my times in my studying to preach, I end up with material that doesn’t make it into my sermon.  It doesn’t get cut because it’s bad (though sometimes it is), but usually because it doesn’t enhance the primary purpose or focus of the passage.  When it’s good I like to post it here…you … Continue reading
