A La Carte (2/10)

A First Century Manuscript? – Dan Wallace: “On 1 February 2012, I debated Bart Ehrman at UNC Chapel Hill on whether we have the wording of the original New Testament today. … I mentioned that seven New Testament papyri had recently been discovered—six of them probably from the second century and one of them probably from the first. These fragments will be published in about a year.”

A Month of Junk – Over the next month PluggedIn will be looking at all of those new reality shows that buy, sell, trade or auction other people’s junk. What a strange phenomenon that so many of today’s most popular shows deal with this premise, of all things.

What If I Don’t Feel Love? – “Over the years, I have had people tell me they want to be married because they love each other and I’ve had people tell me that they want out of their marriages because they no longer feel love for their mate. This has led me to ask some serious questions about the nature of love. What is love? Is it something we can fall into and fall out of? Is it chemistry? Infatuation? Is it an emotional response or a choice?”

Spam Works – This is quite an amazing infographic dealing with the spam industry.

An Interview – My pal Darryl Dash interviewed me recently, asking me about being and becoming a pastor, the relationship between blogging and pastoring, and so on.

Judges in the American Canon – Ever since I got my Audible account, I have been using some of my credits to explore the works of Cormac McCarthy. John Piper once said “Cormac McCarthy is to the American literary canon what Judges is to the the biblical canon.” I have found that to be true. In this article Mike Cosper reflects on those books.

$5 Friday – Ligonier has a couple of good deals in this week’s $5 Friday. Look for books by R.C. Sproul and Michael Haykin.

It is never said, “whom the Lord loveth he enricheth,” but it is said, “whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth.”

—C.H. Spurgeon
