Pillar Commentary Sale
Westminster Books is having a sale on the excellent Pillar Commentary series (edited by D.A. Carson). They have the brand new Hebrews volume in stock. Buy two of the commentaries and you’ll get a further 10% off any others you buy. This is a good time to stock up on the series while it is still young and you don’t have too many volumes to catch up with!

Mark Dever: “Our brother Matt Chandler (pastor of the Village Church near Dallas, TX) has graciously agreed, health permitting, to be with us.

CJ will then ask him some questions, and exhort us as we conclude our time together. Pray for him and for us, that God would use this time for His glory.”

    A Freak of Nature (and Nurture)
