Monday with Mounce – Wouldn’t it be great to have mastered Greek? “One of the beauties of knowing Greek is that you get to see nuances of meaning that are often lost in translation. It’s not that the translators don’t see the meaning; it’s that they simply cannot bring it over smoothly into English.”

Top 10 Preaching Mistakes – David Murray counts down the top ten mistakes preachers make (and especially if they are new).

Are Evangelicals Dangerous? – Dr. Mohler wrote an article for CNN and it attracted a ridiculous amount of attention (not too surprisingly). “By mid-Monday, there were 75 pages of comments at the site. That tells us something about the volatility of the question.”

    A Difference-Making Ministry for Any Christian

    The experience of preaching is very different from the front than from the back, when facing the congregation than when facing the preacher. The congregation faces one man who is doing his utmost to be engaging, to hold their attention, and to apply truths that will impact their hearts and transform their lives.
