A La Carte (4/13)

TBN Again – “A $50 million jet. Chauffeurs. Mansions in California and Florida. Clandestine affairs. Crimes and cover-up. Even a $100,000 motor home for the pet dog. These are just a few of the allegations directed against the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) and its directors in a pair of lawsuits filed in February by former employees of the nation’s largest Christian broadcasting network.”

Denver Moore – If you’ve read the bestselling book Same Kind of Different As Me, you may be interested to know that Denver Moore died last weekend. (I’ve got a review of the book here.)

The Anatomy of Holiness – Kevin DeYoung has a helpful post that deals with holiness.

T4G – All of the main sessions are now available in audio format.

$5 Friday – There are a few notable deals in Ligonier’s $5 Friday this week. That includes The Holiness of God teaching series, A Taste of Heaven by R.C. Sproul and some T4G-related material. I use sales like this to stock up on resources for the church’s library and book table.

Blog Post Planner – A reader of the site sent me a link to this blog post planner. It looks like a helpful resource (especially for women since I think it may be a bit on the flowery side for most guys!).

No Vision Shift – The Christian Post has an interview with Matt Chandler and the future of the Acts 29 Network now that he has assumed leadership.

Faith is to prayer what the feather is to the arrow.

—Thomas Watson

  • Managing Kingdom Causes with Sound Business Principles 

    This week the blog is sponsored by Redeemer University. The word “management” conjures up images of executives leading large corporations with the goal of generating wealth for shareholders. Think of “sustainability” and the lens widens to benefiting other stakeholders like customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. Now, broaden your view even wider. Pan out–way out!…

    Comparative Suffering

    It is something you tend to hear a lot when you have endured a time of significant sorrow or suffering: “I know it’s nothing compared to yours, but…” We have a natural tendency to compare—to compare our experiences to another person’s and to rank or rate them accordingly.
