When Helping Hurts - This month’s free audiobook from ChristianAudio is a good one: When Helping Hurts by Steve Corbett & Brian Fikkert. It would be downright ridiculous not to download it! Meanwhile, Logos users will want to grab this month’s free Logos book: Biblical Theology in the Life of the Church by Michael Lawrence.
Pilgrim’s Progress: A Guided Tour - Ligonier has a new course from Derek Thomas: Pilgrim’s Progress: A Guided Tour. If you haven’t ever looked at Ligonier Connect, maybe now’s the time. I think I’m going to take this one before long…

Blessings Too Big - When God said that children were a blessing, he wasn’t kidding (Psalm 127:3). I’ve got blessings doing cartwheels in my living room and blessings smeared on my kitchen nook windows. The signs of this shocking blessedness is all over the place. My wife and I spend our evenings mopping up the remnants of this blessing, regrouping, catching our breath, getting ready for another day of drinking this blessing from the fire hose of five insanely cute, creative, and (let’s admit it) slightly crazy people under the age of ten.”
Those Who Doubt Their Faith - Here are eight diagnostic questions to ask of people who doubt their faith.
Outrageous Adolesence of the F-16 - “is is the story of two brothers, who happen to be airplanes. The older brother, the F-15 Eagle, entered the world fully formed, and his doting parents—the U.S. Air Force—nurtured him and quickly forgave minor transgressions. The younger brother, the F-16, was born prematurely, with no name, and scrambled to catch up.”
You are always on duty in the Christian life, you can never relax. There is no such thing as a holiday in the spiritual realm. —Martyn Lloyd-Jones
