Blogspotting: My pastor thinks Josh Harris must be confused. Take a look and see if you agree.

Education: ESV Blog pointed me to Biblical Training, a site that offers online courses by a wide variety of notable Christian teachers. Looks like there is lots to learn there!

Bible: Bible Explorer is giving away version 4.0 of their product with some Bibles and Reference books including Talking Strongs Greek and Hebrew Dictionary. They’ll be adding a new book every week including some solidly Reformed works.

Books: Grace and Truth Books is offering a great deal on one of my favorite books, Bruce Ware’s “Father, Son and Holy Spirit.” They have it on sale for only $9.50, far less than any other place I’ve seen. There are a limited number available so grab a couple now!

  • Unite in Prayer with Persecuted Believers

    This week the blog is sponsored by Help The Persecuted. “Can I have a Bible?” The guard studied Qasem. “If you paint the walls of every cell in this prison, I’ll get you a Bible.” “Where is the paint?” And so Qasem, enduring what would ultimately be a three-year sentence for running house churches throughout…
