Commentaries on Sale – Westminster Books is offering three hardcover commentaries by Iain Duguid at $20. That’s $20 for all three! That’s a ridiculously good deal. They’ve also got a free book in PDF format.

What I Didn’t Do Today – I enjoyed this one!

What the Bible Says About Swearing – “There are two basic ways we might handle swear words with our kids and in our own use of the tongue. We could call them the List Strategy and the Heart Strategy.”

Legalism Is a Real Problem – “In the coming weeks, Dr. Richard Phillips will be discussing the affirmations and denials of the Gospel Reformation Network.” This is an increasingly important issue, so I’m looking forward to the series.

Spurgeon

    The Glorious End without the Difficult Means

    Just as Olympic athletes cannot realistically expect to win a gold medal unless they strictly discipline themselves toward victory, Christians cannot hope to prevail in the Christian life unless they take a serious, disciplined approach to it.
