A La Carte (2/6)

Watch Out or the Devil’s Gonna Get You - “In rural America, off a country road, on the soft soil of a weathered field, stands a sobering message for every passer-by: Go to church or the devil will get you!”

Will You Be My Facebook Friend? - Tim Chester has a small ebook titled Will You Be My Facebook Friend? You can get it for free for the next 24 hours if you use voucher code 10ofthosefb. “Image, identity, idolatry and self–promotion are just some of the challenges that social networking can present. Dr Tim Chester looks at these issues pastorally and biblically, in his usual clear and candid manner. He asks pertinent questions to help us tackle them head on.” (Make sure you are buying the ebook, not printed book)

Crazy Love - Francis Chan’s Crazy Love is on sale for $4.99 (Kindle edition). It’s worth reading, even if just to understand what all the hype is about. Remember as well that the Kindle Fire is on sale for another couple of days. Use coupon code FIRELOVE.

What Happens at an Atheist Church? - “An “atheist church” in North London is proving a big hit with non-believers. Does it feel a bit like a new religion?” Whatever it is, you can be confident that it won’t last for long.

Seven Deadly Thoughts of Leaders - I don’t usually go for this kind of article, but this one stood out to me, probably because I know just how prone leaders are to exactly these kinds of thoughts.

This Digital Life - I think it is worth just looking at these images and pondering them for a couple of minutes!

A good teacher like John the Baptist, clears the way, declares the way, and then gets out of the way. —Derek Prime & Alistair Begg
