Denny Burk on “An Evangelical Manifesto”
Denny Burk has some good reflections on the Evangelical Manifesto in this post and in several others at his blog.


Sportsmanship
Stephen Altrogge shares a great little video dealing with sportsmanship.


The Uneven Playing Field
Owen comments on a fascinating article from the New York Times. “In “The Uneven Playing Field,” Sokolove details at tremendous length the high injury risks girls and women face in playing contact sports. I found the piece compelling, frightening, and reflective of common sense: girls are not built like guys, and thus when they play contact sports with tenacity and abandon, they will often face very serious injury.”


The Dubious Future of Libraries
Here is an interesting article from a seminary librarian. He asks “Will the Dubious Future of Libraries be the Salvation of Evangelical Seminaries?”


A Review of “A New Earth”
Don Whitney provides a good review of Eckhart Tolle’s mega-selling “A New Earth.”


Interview with a Would-Be Mother
Lydia has an interview with a woman who, for the past ten years, has been unable to conceive. “She shares with us what a baby-hopeful, godly couple has learned from their infertility about things such as in vitro, adoption, and marital intimacy. “

    The Danger and Necessity of a Passion for Church Growth

    Quite a long time has passed since we witnessed the unexpected rise of a new kind of Calvinism. Few had anticipated that in the twenty-first century, so many millions of people spanning a host of nations and traditions would find themselves affirming such old and controversial doctrines. Yet many did so because they were wary…

    Cognitive Decline and Common Faults

    When visiting a far-off church, I met a man who, with sadness, told me about his father’s final sermon. A lifelong pastor and preacher, his father had withdrawn from full-time ministry several years prior, but still preached from time to time. On this Sunday he took to the pulpit, read his text, and gave his…
