When I Don’t Desire God – Ligonier and Desiring God have partnered to create a course called “When I Don’t Desire God” featuring John Piper. It’s free for the taking! (Also, Ligonier is having an #AskRC Live Twitter event today.)

Q&A with Sam Allberry – Denny Burk recently moderated a Q&A with Sam Allberry where he fielded questions from both Denny and students at SBTS. You can watch the video at the link.

Cannonball – Whether or not you like the music that accompanies it (I did!) this video is very well done.

Honoring Our Favorite Theologians – Westminster Books is offering a great deal on 3 volumes written in honor of some favorite theologians (Piper, Carson, Gaffin). Logos has some good deals in their March Madness event.

Take Note – Every serious reader has strong opinions about footnotes versus endnotes.

The Christian and Common Grace – I appreciated this reflection on God’s common grace. Now there’s something we too often take for granted!

Emotional Blackmail – John Piper comments on emotional blackmail within the church.

Machen

    A Difference-Making Ministry for Any Christian

    The experience of preaching is very different from the front than from the back, when facing the congregation than when facing the preacher. The congregation faces one man who is doing his utmost to be engaging, to hold their attention, and to apply truths that will impact their hearts and transform their lives.
