A La Carte (11/28)

Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God - Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God is my favorite of J.I. Packer’s books and, all these years later, still one of the best on the subject. It’s on sale for just $2.99 in the Kindle edition.

All I Have Is Christ - Desiring God is hosting a free download of the song “All I Have Is Christ.” The recording comes from the most recent Together for the Gospel conference.

Edwarda O’Bara - This is an amazing story: “A woman who lived in a coma for 42 years, meticulously cared for by her family, died Wednesday in her home in Miami Gardens, Fla., the Miami Herald reported.” It is a real testimony to love and loyalty.

Re-Evangelizing New England - Slate looks at how church-planting and music festivals are bringing about a quiet revival in New England.

A Visible, Exemplary Life - “As I mentor and coach leaders in North American churches, I find a common theme among many pastors: They live and lead in such a way so as to disqualify themselves as an elder in their own church.” Ouch.

The Rage of the Flesh - Ray Ortlund says it well: “Sir, if you abuse your wife or daughter or girlfriend, physically or verbally, you are more than a bully.  You are the enemy of God.”

Complacency is a deadly foe of all spiritual growth. —A.W. Tozer
