Weekend A La Carte (March 23)

Today’s Kindle deals include some classics that are worth looking at. (Yesterday on the blog: My Favorite “Minor” Museums) The Industrial Revolution of Shame Wow. “We are undergoing an industrial revolution in shame. New technologies have radically expanded our ability to make and distribute a product. The product is our judgment of one another. As in past industrial revolutions, the mass manufacture and use of a product previously available to just a few or in small amounts has given us the …

A La Carte (March 22)

Today I’m down in Louisville, Kentucky for the Boyce College’s Preview Day. We’ve already got one student thriving here, and with my daughter finishing up eleventh grade and beginning to think about college, she is eager to see it as well. I dug up a handful of worthwhile Kindle deals that may interest you. 5 Questions—5 Scholars: Paul’s Letter to the Romans Justin Taylor had the neat idea of asking 5 scholars the same 5 questions about Romans. I find it …

A La Carte (March 21)

I came up empty looking for new Kindle deals today. You may be interested in subscribing to Ligonier’s Tabletalk magazine and getting 12 months for just $12. (Yesterday on the blog: Are You Writing Headlines for You or Articles for Them?) Is Missionary Work Colonialism? Certainly some has been in the past, but is it necessarily true today? “You might be a missionary – someone called and sent to serve God cross-culturally – but chances are, you don’t like being called …

A La Carte (March 20)

It’s kind of a grab-bag day for Today’s Kindle deals. You may also want to check out this week’s deals at Westminster Books. We All Live in Marx’s World Now Carl Trueman does it again. “Perhaps serious Christians might spend less time hammering each other on Twitter and more time working hard in the local church, talking to the people they can actually influence—those with whom we have real relationships and a common church community. This has to be better than …

A La Carte (March 19)

Today’s Kindle deals include a few books from Zondervan and one for college students. (Yesterday on the blog: Look! Look To Your Baptism!) Pastor, Be What You Want to See Jared Wilson: “God forbids pastoral domineering but commands instead ‘being examples to the flock’ (1 Pet. 5:3). Therefore, pastor, whatever you are, your church will eventually become. If you are a loudmouth boaster, your church will gradually become known for loudmouth boasting. If you are a graceless idiot, your church will …

A La Carte (March 18)

Today’s Kindle deals include several volumes in a biographical series from Crossway. (Yesterday on the blog: A Corporate Confession of Sin & Assurance of Pardon) The Age of Terrorism Meets the Era of the Troll Joe Carter reflects on the horror that unfolded in New Zealand. “The New Zealand shooter is an extreme example of an increasingly common disaffected person—mostly young men—whose worldview is shaped largely by an evil online culture. Here are six characteristics of these ‘trolls’.” The Perfectionist’s Enemy: …

Weekend A La Carte (March 16)

Today’s Kindle deals include some newer books and some classics. This has been a really good week for deals! (Yesterday on the blog: Counsel for Couples) Why Charismatics and Non-Charismatics Can Get Along Tom Schreiner: “We don’t have to deny that our view on spiritual gifts or on whether or not infants should be baptized are important. These issues do matter, but they’re not first-order issues. They’re matters on which faithful believers disagree. And we celebrate the good work that …

A La Carte (March 15)

There are a few new Kindle deals that you may want to consider for your virtual connection. (Yesterday on the blog: Exclusive Preview & Bonus Resources for A Visual Theology Guide to the Bible) The Epic Hunt for a Lost World War II Aircraft Carrier I thoroughly enjoyed reading this account of the search for the U.S.S. Wasp, a carrier sunk during the Second World War. “On Jan. 2 of this year, a research vessel called the Petrel set out from Honiara, on …

A La Carte (March 14)

Today’s Kindle deals include the whole Gospel for Life series from B&H. (Yesterday on the blog: Should Christians “Self Care?”) Don’t Mistake Transfer Growth for Evangelism Transfer growth isn’t necessarily bad, but we sure don’t want to be content with only transfer growth. “Here’s a better question for assessing healthy growth: Who is coming to your church who otherwise probably wouldn’t be active in the faith? This metric, of course, is imprecise, and we don’t want to presume how the lives of …

A La Carte (March 13)

Crossway has just released the ESV Gospel Transformation Study Bible, and Westminster Books already has it on sale. Today’s Kindle deals include several books by Paul Washer as well as a few others. No Private Matter I appreciate this look at social media debate and conversation. “Surely this speaks to the social media debates and debacles which have become so much a part of what Christians are saying and then restating via retweets and shares. Could there be room for …
