A La Carte (9/4)

Thinking Evangelically About Tim Tebow – Jared Wilson: “I’m a little concerned about the way many of my fellow evangelicals think about the phenomenon that is Tim Tebow, and I’m a little concerned about the way Tim Tebow may think about the phenomenon that is Tim Tebow. I think in general evangelicals could think more evangelically — which is to say, guided by the gospel, soberly.”

An Eternal Perspective – I enjoyed this interview with Randy Alcorn from the current issue of Tabletalk magazine.

The History of the World – You may have seen this before. It’s an amazing “histomap” that displays all of world history (up to 1931, anyway) in a single image. It’s incredible.

The Gray Havens – Tomorrow evening The Gray Havens, a band I like (see this interview I did with them) will be performing live on UStream in case you’re interested. You can listen to their album on Bandcamp.

Are You a Calvinist? – I am all for rethinking what labels we use and how we use them. This article provides some good food for thought.

A Warning Against Division – R.C. Sproul goes back to the Reformation to find a warning against division within the church.

Zzzzzz – I’ve been enjoying the comic strip Adam4d. His latest one is about falling asleep while praying.

God uses men who are weak and feeble enough to lean on him.

  • Unite in Prayer with Persecuted Believers

    This week the blog is sponsored by Help The Persecuted. “Can I have a Bible?” The guard studied Qasem. “If you paint the walls of every cell in this prison, I’ll get you a Bible.” “Where is the paint?” And so Qasem, enduring what would ultimately be a three-year sentence for running house churches throughout…

  • 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…
