A La Carte (6/2)

NEXT - This year’s NEXT conference just wrapped up and all of the sessions are now available for download. They include sessions by Josh Harris, Kevin DeYoung, Mark Dever, D.A. Carson and others.

Summer Reading - I always look forward to Al Mohler’s summer reading list and will definitely be reading at least a few of the titles he has listed this year. As usual the list is full of books dealing with history.

A Disaster With Many Fathers - Here’s an interesting bit of writing from the Washington Post: “Here’s my question: Why were we drilling in 5,000 feet of water in the first place? Many reasons, but this one goes unmentioned: Environmental chic has driven us out there. As production from the shallower Gulf of Mexico wells declines, we go deep (1,000 feet and more) and ultra deep (5,000 feet and more), in part because environmentalists have succeeded in rendering the Pacific and nearly all the Atlantic coast off-limits to oil production.” While on the subject of the oil spill, this article from the Times offers a good perspective on our faith in technology.

They Danced - Another touching article from Ali’s African Adventures.

Free Audio Book of the Month - This month Christian Audio is Francis Chan’s Forgotten God as a free download.

Book Deal - Reformation Heritage Books has packaged four books (three of them by Joel Beeke) for only $10.
