The Best of July
I've been at this blogging thing for quite a long time now--it's coming up on ten years. I've been at the daily blogging thing for almost as long. This means that I've got an extensive backlist of articles from years gone by. I thought it might be fun to pull out some of the articles I wrote in previous months of July, stretching all the way back to 2004.
Speaking Love’s Languages - I wrote this as a reflection on The Five Love Languages and some of the areas in which that book is useful.
Read Better with Baxter - Richard Baxter, that is.
All About Endorsements - This post kind of anticipates the one I wrote last week about how people who endorse books often don’t read the book.
Your Suffering Does Not Just Belong to You - This is an important implication of living life in Christian community: your suffering does not belong to only you.
Every Word of God - Here I discuss the importance of a good translation of the Bible.
How to Begin a Commentary Collection - Lessons I learned in putting together a collection of commentaries, along with suggestions on specific volumes.
Environmentalism and Christianity - In this article I tried to think through environmentalism from a Christian perspective.
The So Much More - Sometimes I look back through the archives and find an article I had forgotten about but really enjoyed reading again. This is one of them.
One Thousand - This was a reflection on 1,000 consecutive days of blogging.
The Tyranny of Quiet Time - I look to Jerry Bridges to see how quiet time can become a time of tyranny.
The Proper Use of Scripture in Books - Back in 2006 I was thinking about how to use the Bible well.
The Nature of Truth - In this article from long ago I look at God’s progressive revelation of truth.
