Because I am now working out of the church offices a couple of days a week, I am starting to haul my library over there (since that’s where I anticipate doing the bulk of my study). That’s no small task, as it happens. But little by little I’m moving it over, a few boxes and a single bookcase at a time. My back hurts.

Critical Thinking Saves Faith – Nancy Pearcey writes about the importance of critical thinking in the Christian life.

The Worst Gifts Ever – MSNBC has a roundup of gifts you don’t want to give or get this Christmas.

The Final Judgment – Matt Perman writes about something we often miss when we discuss the final judgment.

Famous Pastor Quits, Moves to Asia – CNN writes about Francis Chan. “He pastored a 4,000-member church in California.

Homeschooling by the Numbers – Here’s an interesting (though obviously one-sided) infographic on homeschooling in the US of A.

Free Online Hebrew Course – David Murray posts a link to an online Hebrew course he created a few years ago. I wonder if this will teach you to speak Hebrew with a Scottish accent…

Free MLJ – A friend of mine has made up a list of free Martyn Lloyd-Jones sermons. So if you want to hear some MLJ or know where you can find other free resources, click the link.

—D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

    The Hands and Feet of the Bible

    The Bible has life and the Bible brings life because it has been spoken by God. The Bible’s life, its voice, its feet, and hands are the life, voice, feet, and hands of God extended toward his people.
