A La Carte (September 27)

Today’s Kindle deals include a handful of interesting titles.

Westminster Books has some new deals that are worth a peek.

The Real Story of Christianity and Abortion

Al Mohler tells the real story.

Jan Hus: Martyred Reformer

I plan to visit the Hus Museum in Germany tomorrow, so appreciated this brief bio: “Hus (also commonly spelled Huss) helped lay the foundation for the Reformation through his courageous proclamation of the truth, even when doing so cost him his life.”

Deepest, Darkest Secrets

This writer asked Tinder to send her all the data they’ve collected on her as she has used the app. It came to 800 pages. Her reflections are worth considering for all of us who use so much social media.

A Letter to My Former Pastor, on the Occasion of His Retirement

Trevin Wax pays tribute: “For more than a decade of my life, you were the primary chef who served up and seasoned the meat of God’s Word for my spiritual sustenance. During my most formative years, you nourished me through your preaching more than one thousand times.”

Airplane Mode

This article aptly describes the odd state of conflict that exists in the skies (and airports) today.

Seven Characteristics of Liberal Theology

Kevin DeYoung provides seven characteristics of liberal theology. Such theology shows up constantly, so it’s good to keep this stuff in mind.

Liturgy for the Non-Liturgical Christian

“Liturgy is making a comeback among many in the the younger evangelical crowd. Yet it’s worth pointing out that most of these youngsters (and older folk too) who think they are moving from non-liturgy to liturgy as a kind of ‘adding to’ in their Christian church experience, need first to realise that something entirely different is happening.”

Flashback: You Have Been Taught to Love

Within a local church, the love of one Christian to another will be dependent upon each person’s understanding of the gospel and their focus on the cross of Christ. Is the cross your obsession? Is it central to your life and faith? Your love for others depends on it!

Jesus took the tree of death so you could have the tree of life.

—Tim Keller

  • Leadership

    We Need Qualified Leadership

    A few days ago I happened upon the page of an especially mega-sized megachurch. The church is about to undergo a leadership transition from an older man to a younger one and a page on the site lays out the process through which this new pastor was chosen. I read with a morbid kind of…

  • Do Not Envy the Wicked

    Do You Envy the Wicked?

    It takes a long time for sinful instincts to become pure, for tendencies toward what is evil to be transformed into tendencies toward what is good, lovely, and pleasing to God. The man who quits drugs will still react when he catches a whiff and the woman who gave up alcoholism will still struggle when…
