A La Carte (3/30)

I get to spend the day in Grand Rapids, hanging around the Zondervan offices and trying to plot out my next book. A few days ago I solicited some suggestions. Thanks to those who sent them along; several of them were quite good! I hope that today brings some clarity.

Sexting Epidemic - Denny Burk writes about the sexting epidemic among young people today. “Christian parents have to be absolutely committed in a counter-cultural kind of a way to providing guidance to their kids. Dads, that means that you have a special responsibility for the protection of your daughters and the leadership of your sons.”

The Next Story - Here, if you’re interested, is an early (and encouraging) review of The Next Story.

Thriving at College - My friend Alex Chediak has a new book out that is garnering great reviews and endorsements. And as it happens, it’s currently available at a great discount.

6 Keys to Poor Preaching - Darryl Dash lists them. [insert hilarious joke if you’ve ever heard Darryl preach]

He Hasn’t Even Died - Carl Trueman makes me laugh.

Piper & Sproul - At the recent Ligonier Ministries National Conference, John Piper and R.C. Sproul had “A round table discussion on the valuable lessons learned by each man throughout their ministry experiences as well as advice to the next generation of Christians and leaders in the church.” Justin Taylor wrote up an introduction to their ministries that’s well worth reading.

To Love Your Neighbor - A radical suggestion from an article at Gospel Coalition.

Pride gets no pleasure out of having something, only out of having more of it than the next man. We say people are proud of being rich, or clever, or good-looking, but they are not. They are proud of being richer, or cleverer, or better-looking than others.C.S. Lewis
