A La Carte (7/28)

John Stott’s death has already generated a lot of memorials. Here are a few that I found particularly interesting: Sandy Grant, Mark Meynell, Andy Le Peau and Timmy Brister. Many more will follow in the days to come.

When Tumor Markers Rise – This is a powerful article from Mike Pohlman. “My wife Julia impresses me more every day. For over two years now she has valiantly and gracefully endured stage four breast cancer. When I look at Julia I am reminded of the words Abraham Lincoln said of Ulysses S. Grant in a rising tide of criticism against him: ‘I can’t spare this man; he fights.’”

You Just Don’t Get Me – I appreciated Julian’s comments on John MacArthur’s letters to the Young, Restless and Reformed crowd.

Pornification – Ed Stetzer is posting what looks to be a promising series on the subject of pornography. On a similar note, Paul Tautges is asking father’s to consider listening to “Sex & the Single Man,” by Mark Dever from the 2004 Desiring God Conference.

The Norway Attacks – The Big Picture has a photo gallery dealing with the aftermath of the shootings in Norway.

And here are a few deals you may wish to take advantage of. Westminster Books is offering the SOUL series (Christianity Explored for young people) at a deep discount. Reformation Heritage Books is having an inventory reduction sale and offering some good deals. Shepherd Press is selling off “scratch and dent” books at just $2.99 each.

It is better to get wisdom than gold. Gold is another’s, wisdom is our own; gold is for the body and time, wisdom for the soul and eternity.

—Matthew Henry

    Stop Swiping, Start Serving

    I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest that in the past few weeks, you have probably not gotten rip-roaring drunk nor participated in a debauched drinking party. You have probably not given yourself over to rampant sexual immorality or a life obsessed with sensuality. At least, I hope not

    One Measure of Greatness

    While all of us ought to see evidence of marked growth in our knowledge of God, our relationship with him, and our obedience to him, none of us ever evolves beyond our need for the ordinary means of grace. We never “level up” to such a degree that we gain access to some hidden extraordinary…
