A La Carte (July 22)

friday

Those who use Logos will want to remember that they are offering 50% off many of their best commentaries this month. Also, they’re offering 30% off the Logos 9 feature set for those haven’t yet made the leap.

Westminster Books has an early sale on a new book by Joni Eareckson Tada (for which I was pleased to write an endorsement).

The Myth of the Modern Self

Carl Trueman: “The sheer rage that has greeted the Dobbs decision demands reflection. The rhetoric regarding victims of incest and rape is powerful but hardly explains the anger, given that such cases are comparatively rare and exceptional. They make good material for emotional appeal to the populace, but are neither foundational to the philosophy of the pro-abortion cause nor the real source of the outrage we are witnessing.”

There is One Gospel

Be sure to listen to this great new song from CityAlight.

He/Him please

Jesse Johnson: “Imagine you are a youth soccer coach, and a girl you have coached for five seasons takes you aside at practice and asks you, ‘Coach: I’m going through some changes in my life, and one of them is that I’ve decided I want to be known as a guy.

Newton’s God

I appreciated this new video from the John 1:10 Project.

What I’ve Learned from 25 Years of Marriage

Cara shares some of what she has learned through 25 years of marriage.

Death is not Dying

“This life is a vapor, the shadowlands of beauty and sin and grief. A splashing, shallow kiddie pool compared to the swirling depths of magnificent ocean-treasures awaiting us one day, if we bow in humble submission before God.”

Flashback: White Fragility and the Bible’s Big Story

The question I eventually want to answer is this: Is White Fragility a helpful tool for white Christians as we discuss issues of race and then begin to take action?

We obey God not because we are afraid of what He will do to us if we do not. Rather, we obey Him because we are moved by all that He has done for us in Jesus Christ.

—Anthony J. Carter

    The Deconstruction of Christianity

    There is nothing new and nothing particularly unusual about apostasy—about people who once professed the Christian faith coming to deny it.

    When God Gives Us a Platform

    There are many ways we may respond to the sudden onrush of some new pain or the sudden onset of some fresh sorrow.
