A La Carte (05/11)

Thursday May 11, 2006

Music: Bob Kauflin is looking to give away 50 copies of the “Worship God Live” CD, but only to people who meet the following criteria: “You are a pastor or a music minister/worship leader in your local church or ministry; You regularly write a blog (that people other than your family read); You will post a review of the CD on your blog by June 15.”

Blogspotting: Paul, with whom I travelled to the Together for the Gospel Conference, has posted a photo essay (if three photos can be considered an essay) of yours truly, including a rare look at me riding a moving sidewalk. I hope they were all taken on the same day, since otherwise it means that I forgot to change the whole time I was in Louisville.

Interview:Sojourners” has an interview with McLaren that discusses “Da Vinci Code.” McLaren says “We need to ask ourselves why the vision of Jesus hinted at in Dan Brown’s book is more interesting, attractive, and intriguing to these people than the standard vision of Jesus they hear about in church.” That’s because they hate the Jesus of the Bible, Brian!

Theology: The most recent issue of “Critical Issues Commentary” is now available. The topic this time around is “Recovering Reformation Theology.”
