Pastors Writing Books – Kevin DeYoung writes seven thoughts on pastors writing books.

Kids in a Sex-Filled Culture – Interesting: “I believe the porn pandemic and other forms of illicit sex are really a result of our failure to love God and our neighbors. Consequently, we cannot merely fixate on ‘Don’t do this, don’t do that’ instruction or on isolating our children. They need to know deep down why we do what we do or don’t do.”

Angels We Have Heard On High – This is a pretty good rendition of “Angels We Have Heard On High.”

How Can Jesus Be the Only Way? – Michael Horton answers the age-old question.

Heavenly, Glorious, Melting Power – “It’s easy for our devotional lives to revert to plodding through scheduled chapters in the Bible, and mechanically praying through a list of requests. Don’t you hate that? So what can we do to keep this from happening?”

Finding Myself in the Song of Songs – This is a neat reflection on The Song of Solomon.
