A La Carte (6/19)

New Commentary Series – Danny Akin just announced a new series of expositional commentaries and several of them look like great fits–Mark Dever with 1 Peter, Al Mohler with Hebrews, Russell Moore with Genesis, Thabiti Anyabwile with Luke, etc. I’m not so sure about Francis Chan in James, but I’m willing to keep an open mind! This series certainly has the celebrity factor going for it.

The Gospel According to Prometheus – Thabiti Anyabwile has an interesting look at the new film Prometheus. “Here’s a movie that puts the question of origin and God’s existence center stage–perfect for an outing with that neighbor or friend that does not yet believe in the Lord.”

Profile of an Abuser – “In his book, Mending the Soul: Understanding and Healing Abuse, Steven R. Tracy identified four general characteristics of abusers. If we hope to protect our children and society from abusers, we need to be aware of the traits that make up the profile of an abuser.”

Google Taking Over – Here’s a quick, visual take on how much room Google now takes up in its search results.

Short-Term Missions – “Contrary to popular belief, most missions trips and service projects do not: empower those being served, engender healthy cross-cultural relationships, improve quality of live, relieve poverty, change the lives of participants [or] increase support for long-term missions work.” Ouch!

A Culture of Reading – Mark Dever has some very helpful things to say about creating a culture of reading in your church. (HT)

The shop, the barn, the scullery, and the smithy become temples when men and women do all to the glory of God!

    Why Didn’t You Tell Me?

    If you have spent any time at all on YouTube, you have probably seen videos of people hearing for the first time or people seeing color for the first time—videos of people who, through the miracles of modern science, have senses restored that had either been missing altogether or that had become dull through illness…

    We All Have To Do With God

    Every one of us must deal with God. Every one of us must, at some time, face God. Every one of us must be prepared to give an account to God. For, as Scripture says, “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto…
