A La Carte (4/19)

Social Media & Politics - According to this article “Obama set the ‘gold standard’ for use of social media, and now it’s an absolute must for candidates.” Indeed. It is tough to imagine how any political campaign could be successful today without a strong social media component.

Pastors & Social Media - Speaking of social media, Darryl Dash looks at advice being given to teachers and their use of social media. He then applies it to pastors.

The Hour of the Mad - A great site for any World War 2 buff.

TNS Blog Tour - Zondervan is putting together a blog tour for The Next Story. So if you a) have a blog and b) would like a copy of the book and c) would like to read and review the book, well, click the link at have at ‘er.

Matthew Smith - Matthew Smith has put his solo albums on sale for this week only. They are great albums! If you’ve got no money to spend, check out some free music from the Gospel Coalition hymn sing from last week.

Pillars of Grace - David Steele has a glowing review of Steve Lawson’s new book in the Long Line of Godly Men series. “Pillars of Grace is a theological tour de force.  It is essential reading for pastors who seek to integrate historical theology into the regular preaching menu.  It is essential reading for students who are investigating the roots, depth, and breadth of the doctrines of grace.”

Tempted and Tried - A good book trailer makes me want to read a good book. This one’s got snakes and mopeds. It’s hard to go wrong.

The Mountain - This is a stunningly beautiful video. Watch and enjoy!
