Man, Woman, and the Mystery of Christ – Here’s the (PDF) text of Russell Moore’s address at the Vatican earlier this week.

Interpretive Dance – WORLD magazine covers BioLogos. “The BioLogos Foundation is making a major, well-funded push to change the way Christians read Genesis and think about Adam and Eve.”

Daily Devotionals – I’m often asked to recommend daily devotionals, but rarely know which to suggest. Here are a few that are bundled and on sale at Westminster Books; they all look excellent. (Peace by Stephen Nichols, New Morning Mercies by Paul Tripp, Saving Grace by C. John Miller.)

A Proud Calvinist – “A proud Calvinist is a combination of two terms that have opposite meanings. A true Calvinist is one who humbly submits to God’s sovereignty.” And yet…

Mothering in the Internet Age – Instead of googling that question about mothering, why don’t you ask one of the older women in your church?

What’s Wrong with Reparative Therapy? – Heath Lambert addresses the much-maligned reparative therapy.

    Young Man, Don’t Even Make that First Sports Bet

    It’s impossible to avoid the advertising and impossible to miss the claims. Sports are great, they say, but do you know what makes them even better? Adding a little wager. Sports are exciting, they say, but even more exciting when you’ve got a bit of money riding on them. So why not enjoy them all…

  • Not a Life of Ease

    It’s Not a Life of Ease

    You can’t read the New Testament and fail to understand that the Christian life was never meant to be a life of ease. Each of us will encounter adversity and adversaries, and each of us will have to wage war against our fearsome foes— the world, the flesh, and the devil. Then, each of us…
