Mrs. B.B. Warfield – Fred Zaspel: “Believe it or not, since the publication of my The Theology of B.B. Warfield: A Systematic Summary in early 2010 I have received more inquiries regarding Warfield’s wife, Annie, than any other single Warfield subject.” In this article he dispels some of the myths.

6 Discontinuities – This is a helpful little chart that displays six discontinuities between the Old Covenant and the New Covenant in Jesus.

4 Sermon Types to Avoid – Derek Thomas gives four sermon types that we ought to avoid.

Commentaries Written By Women – May we use commentaries written by women? Jared Wilson answers with a resounding yes. “I love John Piper, as I assume has been evident over the years, but I found his answer to this question lacking at best and unhelpful at most. To some extent, he was directed to go to the biblical outline of gender roles by the phrasing of the question itself. But I think a better answer would be simply to step back, redirect, and consider the nature of a book.”

God Wins – “Ever since Jen McManus was first diagnosed with a malignant tumor, she’s been fighting—fighting against cancer, and fighting for hope. However, far from being rooted in the vagueness of wishful thinking, Jen’s hope is anchored in the certainty of Christ’s love. ‘Cancer has made death more real—and the gospel more real,’ she says. ‘I’m joyful because of the gospel and because of the story God is telling through my life’.”

God cannot give us happiness and peace apart from himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

—C.S. Lewis

    Why Those Who Seem Most Likely to Come, Never Come At All

    It is something we have all observed at one time or another and something we have all wondered about. Why is it that those who seem most likely to come to Christ so often reject him? Why is it that those hear the boldest invitations and who have the greatest opportunities so commonly turn away?…
