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.

  • Not a Life of Ease

    It’s Not a Life of Ease

    You can’t read the New Testament and fail to understand that the Christian life was never meant to be a life of ease. Each of us will encounter adversity and adversaries, and each of us will have to wage war against our fearsome foes— the world, the flesh, and the devil. Then, each of us…

  • The Way You Walk

    The Way You Walk

    You can tell a lot about people by the way they walk, can’t you? You can tell a lot about their physical health, their emotional state, and perhaps even their spiritual condition.
