Theology: The theology wiki Theopedia is continuing to grow and mature. It is a good, though not infallible, resource for questions of church history, Bible study and theology.

Theology Bonus: There is some interesting discussion happening at the Together for the Gospel blog. Mark Dever is asked Ligon Duncan about Presbyterian church membership and they are questioning whether Calvinists are better evangelists than Arminians.

    Let’s Hear It For the Second Parents

    While today we tend to associate step-parents with divorce, in previous centuries they were almost exclusively associated with death and with either widow- or widowerhood.
