A La Carte (02/24)

Friday February 24, 2006

Giveaway: Scott is having his second monthly “Free Books Friday.” “This edition has 250 books and 100 audio sermon tapes (MacArthur, Mohler, Piper, Begg, Sproul, etc).”

Du Jour: Josh Harris points to an article from Christianity Today discussing what went wrong with Bruce Wilkinson’s ill-fated attempt at conquering poverty in Africa. “Though I didn’t agree with the premise of his best-selling The Prayer of Jabez or the way many people treated the prayer as a sort of good luck charm, I respect Wilkinson’s obvious love for the Savior and desire to minister to the poor and to orphans. I hope you’ll join me in praying for Mr. Wilkinson and his family.”

Theology: Jollyblogger has some good thoughts on other people’s good thoughts about Total Depravity.

Books: Michael Haykin cries out for authors equal to the task of writing biographies of the great Puritans.
