A La Carte (April 11)

A La Carte Thursday 1

The bookstore 10ofThose is hosting a flash sale with quite a lot of great titles discounted 60% or even higher. Some good picks include Embracing Complementarianism, Fight Your Fears, Parenting with Hope, and Age of Opportunity.

Meanwhile, Westminster Books is offering a 40% off launch sale on Stephen Wellums’s new Systematic Theology which has gotten accolades from Michael Horton, Tom Schreiner, and others.

I was a bit late adding yesterday’s Kindle deals so check in if you missed them. Meanwhile, I’ll continue searching for more.

4 Reasons Why the Bible Does Not Support Transgenderism

Kevin DeYoung offers four solid reasons why the Bible does not support transgenderism. “We will see that the Bible does not support transgenderism. Instead, God has created each of us as either male or female, and he desires that we live our lives—in appearance, in attitude, and in behavior—according to our biological sex.”

Your Elders Will Fail You

As a long-serving pastor/elder I can assure you that this is true: Your elders will fail you. “My hope from this article is that we, as a Christian community, may give and grow in grace. I’m not giving a pass to sloppy, neglectful, or even sinful shepherding. But, I am advocating that we keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep. Why? Because your elders will fail you.”

25 Questions a Christian Woman Should Ask Herself When a Man Starts to Show Interest

This is a pretty good collection of questions for young women to consider.

Is the Story of Job Historical? (Job 1)

The events that unfold in the book of Job can seem to be unrealistic. Should we believe that it is meant to be historical? Douglas Sean O’Donnell answers here.

The Same Person in Every Room

This is a noble aspiration. “I want to be the same person in every room. I want to be the same person, at the core of me, whether I’m dressed up in a suit or a tracksuit. I want to be the same person with children and adults. The same person when I’m with powerful and influential people as I am with weak, heartbroken, and desperate people.”

Divine Simplicity

For those who are interested in doing some in-depth reading, there is a new issue of Credo magazine free for the taking. It features articles by, among others, Gavin Ortlund, Keith Mathison, and William Boekestein.

Flashback: I Wish I Was Rich

If you aren’t being extravagantly generous with the bit you have now, what makes you think that having more would suddenly make all the difference? 

The reprover should have a lion’s stout heart, or he will not be faithful, and a lady’s soft hand, or he is not like to be successful.

—George Swinnock

    Redeeming Sex in Marriage

    Surely few things in this world are more mysterious than sex. Surely few things give such clear evidence that there must be more to them than the sum of their parts.
