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

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?”

    The Least of My Children’s Accomplishments

    I know what it is to be a father and to take pride in the achievements of my children. I had not been a father for long when I learned that the least of my children’s accomplishments by far outshines the greatest of my own. Their smallest victory generates more delight than my largest and…
