A La Carte (February 4)

When Neighbors Begin – Doug Wilson responds to Rachel Held Evans and her thoughts on when life begins. “The size of these tiny people only affects the clarity of the situation if we define the humanity of others on the basis of our limited eyesight. But why is the question of a soul connected to size, as though the naked eye were in charge of these things?”

Forged in Forgiveness – “This is a remarkable story. Erik Fitzgerald was a youth pastor in Georgia when he awoke one day to the terrible news that his wife and son had been killed in a car accident.” A video tells what happened after he met the man driving the other car.

Happily Ever After – I guess this is one for women: “Even at my age I still love princess stories. Growing up I was committed to my role as princess whenever playing dress up. Honestly, I wish we still dressed in big flowing gowns. I am all for chivalry, I love movies with happily-ever-after endings, and am totally into reading Monarchical History. I am a romantic through and through.”

Bible Translations and Bible Reading – Here are some helpful distinctions in Bible translations and helpful counsel in Bible reading and studying.

Amazing Olympic Facts – I think “amazing” might be overselling it; “random and interesting” is more like it.

Ask R.C. Live – Here’s a link to the recording from last week’s “Ask R.C.” online event; there’s also a list of all the questions he answered if you’re looking for something in particular.

Spurgeon Rock

May your character be not a writing upon the sand, but an inscription upon the rock.

    The Danger and Necessity of a Passion for Church Growth

    Quite a long time has passed since we witnessed the unexpected rise of a new kind of Calvinism. Few had anticipated that in the twenty-first century, so many millions of people spanning a host of nations and traditions would find themselves affirming such old and controversial doctrines. Yet many did so because they were wary…
