Calvin Downloads

In honor of Calvin’s 500th birthday, Christian Audio is offering great deals on a list of Calvin-related audio books.


Prime Minister Harper and Transubstantiation
“At a recent funeral for a Canadian dignitary, Prime Minister Stephen Harper was televised at the altar of a Roman Catholic church about to take the Eucharist. Instead of ingesting the host, Harper slipped it into his pocket. This created a furor amongst leading Canadian Catholics.” My buddy Ian has the story and video.


Next Live Available for Download
Bob Kauflin: “The Next 2009 conference took place in Baltimore, Maryland May 30-June 2. Over 2500 people gathered to worship Jesus Christ in song, to study his Word, and to rediscover who he is and what he has done. I had the privilege of leading the songs along with three different bands: the Na Band, Reilly, and Zelos. Some of the sessions also featured a 14 piece string section. We were able to record the event and are now offering Next 2009 Live, a 13 song download for $5. That’s right – 13 songs for 5 bucks. Where else are you going to find a deal like that?”


Is Hurt Mail the New Hate Mail?
Carl Trueman takes this on one in his latest column.


Deliberate Mortgage Defaults
I found this article from TIME rather interesting. “Up to 26% of U.S. homeowners who stop paying their mortgage may be doing so intentionally, not because they can’t make the payments but because they don’t want to put money into a house that’s worth less than what they owe.”


Deal of the Day: The Hope Fulfilled
RHB has The Hope Fulfilled on sale today. “In honoring Dr. Owen Palmer Robertson who is a scholar, pastor, church planter, seminary professor, author, and missionary-administrator, this collection of essays seeks to embody both the Reformation and Westminster tradition flavors of Old Princeton theology and Old Southern Presbyterianism.”

    It’s Easier to Tear Down than Build Up

    In my travels, I encountered a man whose work is demolition. When buildings are old and decrepit, or even when they just need to be removed to make way for others, his job is to destroy them and haul them away. New or old, big or small, plain or fancy—it makes no difference to him.…
