Twinterview – Jeremy Walker recently did what he calls a “twinterview” with David Murray and me. It is an interview between two people. “As usual, neither interviewee saw the other’s answers until both sets of responses were in, and there was no collaboration or collusion.”

Complementarianism for Dummies – Mary Kassian has a very helpful post here that provides a brief and basic look at complementarianism.

Internally and externally, Christian denominations are ‘sore oppressed, by schisms rent asunder, by heresies distressed.’ Amid despair, Baylor professor Rodney Stark’s The Triumph of Christianity: How the Jesus Movement Became the World’s Largest Religion (HarperOne) provides long-term perspective. It is WORLD’s 2012 Book of the Year.”

Why Your Kid Can’t Add – Why your kid can’t add without a calculator, that is.

Sinners in a Fishbowl – I haven’t been a Preacher’s Kid but I now have three of them. I appreciated Barnabas Piper’s take on the unique challenges they will face.

Temptations and occasions put nothing into a man, but only draw out what was in him before.

    The Hands and Feet of the Bible

    The Bible has life and the Bible brings life because it has been spoken by God. The Bible’s life, its voice, its feet, and hands are the life, voice, feet, and hands of God extended toward his people. For that reason among others it is always worthy of our time, our attention, and our dedication.
