A La Carte (2/7)

The Cross and the Crescent – Michael Horton: “Newsweek‘s current cover-story is ‘The Global War on Christians in the Muslim World,’ by Ayann Hirsi Ali, who fled her native Somalia and served in the Dutch Parliament before taking a position at the American Enterprise Institute. As the article points out, widespread anti-Christian violence is exploding even in countries with Muslim minorities. How do we respond wisely as Christians to this growing threat?”

The Holy Superbowl – This is an interesting article to find in a secular publication. “To my way of thinking the Super Bowl is holy if by holy we refer to something that garners the simultaneous attention, interest, commitment and passion, of imponderably large numbers of people.”

Social Media Explained – This explains it all.

The Journal of Biblical Counseling – CCEF is bringing back The Journal of Biblical Counseling. The information hasn’t been posted yet, but check in at the CCEF site and it should be there this morning.

More Women Priests – “More female priests are joining the Church of England than male ones for the first time ever, it can be disclosed as it takes another step towards the introduction of women bishops.”

Sproul and Ferguson – “On January 20, 2012, Saint Andrew’s was the location for ‘Theology Night with Sinclair Ferguson and R.C. Sproul.’ Topics addressed included the doctrines of grace, when to leave a local church, Tim Tebow, dispensationalism, free will, and the peccability or impeccability of Jesus.”

Coffer – I like the way this guy rolls.

Is there nothing to sing about to-day? Then borrow a song from to-morrow; sing of what is yet to be. Is this world dreary? Then think of the next.

—C.H. Spurgeon

    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. For that reason among others it is always worthy of our time, our attention, and our dedication.
