In Memorian, James Montgomery Boice – Rick Phillips writes about James Montgomery Boice who died ten years ago this month. “In my opinion, the reason for James Boice’s influence and legacy is seldom understood.

Ligonier Video – The video for most of the sessions from the recent Ligonier Ministries National Conference is now available. You can check out the pre-conference (Mohler/Parsons/Stetzer/Challies) or the conference itself which featured “Tough Questions Christians Face.” Be sure to note the “THU/FRI” switch at the top of the list of video since that’s how you’ll find all of the video for the second day of the conference. And bookmark it so you can come back when the Saturday videos are available since there were some very good sessions on the Saturday as well.

And while on the subject of Amazon, their Gold Box Deal is worth checking out if you still don’t have a good GPS.

  • Tell Me

    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…
