A La Carte (12/15)

First up, I’ve got some more Kindle deals for you. This is pretty much the rest of the Shepherd Press catalog, all marked down to $1.99. There are some really good books in the list. Red Like Blood by Joe Coffee and Bob Bevington, Christ Formed in You by Brian Hedges, When Sinners Say ‘I Do’ by Dave Harvey, Get Outta My Face by Rick Horne, Herein Is Love: Genesis by Nancy Ganz, A Proverbs Driven Life by Anthony Selvaggio, Everyday Talk by John Younts, Lost in the Middle by Paul David Tripp, Get Wisdom by Ruth Younts. (All these other deals remain as well)

Encourage Your Husband - Jared Wilson has a helpful little blog post in which he shares 5 ways that women can encourage their husbands.

The Lure of Rome - “Last month, Westminster Seminary California’s Office Hours podcast spoke with Ligonier Teaching Fellow, Dr. Robert Godfrey, about why evangelicals and other Protestants become Roman Catholic and how we should respond.” In a similar vein, this article from Gospel Coalition is an interesting read.

5 Signs You’re Borrowing Too Much - TIME: “They’re ba-ack. Like the ghosts in Poltergeist, shoppers have returned this holiday season and they are threatening to stir up a familiar demon—debts they can’t repay.”

Climate Change - I got a laugh from this cleverly sarcastic article: “Canada Officially Withdraws From Unenforceable, Unheeded Climate Change Pact.”

Maybe I Do Want Topical Preaching - Jonathan Leeman calls for relevance and application in expositional preaching in this light-hearted article.
