Trevin Wax posts the second part of an interview he conducted with Justin Taylor. They talk about the forthcoming ESV Study Bible.

Craig Brian Larson addresses a blind spot in the spiritual formation movement. “Read books on spiritual formation and you will be hard-pressed to find listening to the preaching of God’s Word mentioned as a first-order spiritual discipline in its own right.”


Is Success a Hindrance to Marriage?
