Here are a few Kindle deals. Killjoys by Desiring God ($2.99). This is the last day to grab these books from 9Marks: The Gospel by Ray Ortlund; Evangelism by Mack Stiles; Expositional Preaching by David Helm; Sound Doctrine by Bobby Jamieson; Church Elders by Jeramie Rinne; Church Membership by Jonathan Leeman; Church Discipline by Jonathan Leeman ($4.99 each). Also, Mongerism has a whole series of books that is free for the taking.
Here is an important word about Introverts in the Dearest Place on Earth. “Both extroverts and introverts must do the work to see that those with the gift of introversion are a grace to God’s Church.

Jonathan Leeman adds an important entry to the ongoing discussion of Can Women Teach Under the Authority of Elders?
Is This What Love Looks Like? I would say it is. “My husband and I have been married nearly 20 years, and because we live in a city (and attend a church) teeming with young, professional singles, we’re often asked about marriage. There are things I wish to tell those eager for advice.”

I appreciate what Jake Meador says about Evangelicals and the Search for Credibility.
