Interviews About Everything Else

I have been able to conduct a lot of interviews in the many years I’ve been running this blog. A couple of weeks ago I drew up a list of interviews featuring Christian artists. Today I’ve got a second round-up for you, this one showcasing interviews about, well, everything else. About Everything “10 Questions with John MacArthur” and “5 More Questions with John MacArthur” About Books They’ve Written “Spiritual Healing in the Midst of a Husband’s Addiction to Pornography” about …

Interviews with Christian Artists

I have been able to conduct quite a few interviews in the many years I’ve been running this blog.

Fiction & Literature: An Interview with Russell Moore

When I was in Louisville for Together for the Gospel I bumped into Russell Moore and had a few minutes to speak about reading fiction. I quickly saw that he has done a lot of thinking about fiction, about the morality and responsibility of reading it. I was eager to learn more and he was kind enough to answer my questions. In recent months I have been reading and listening to more novels than is typical for me. I’ve enjoyed …

3 Ways to Encourage Your Pastor – R.C. Sproul Jr. offers up three really good ways to encourage your pastor. As I read these, I realized that though I am a pastor, I ought to be more deliberate in encouraging the other pastors at my church! Building Healthy Churches – 9Marks has just released a helpful new series of study guides along with some new books on church discipline and church membership. Westminster Books has it all on sale; now’s …

The Good Life: An Interview with Trip Lee

I’ve made it no secret that I enjoy Christian rap music (and I’m not above poking fun at myself, as I did with The Middle-Aged White Guy’s Guide to Christian Rap). Near the forefront of the Christian rap or holy hip-hop movement is Trip Lee. His new album, The Good Life, releases today and last week I was able to catch up with Trip to ask him about life, ministry, and this new album. You have a new album releasing …

The Essential D.A. Carson

I happen to know two people who have read the complete written works of D.A. Carson–at least everything that is publicly available. This takes some dedication, considering that Carson’s bibliography includes 62 books, 257 articles and 115 reviews. I recently interviewed the two of them, trusting that they would be able to give us an introduction to Carson’s works and help bridge the rest of us into the ones that are most important and most accessible. Andy Naselli is a former student of …

The Most Unlikely of Heroes

I first met Lee Dyck at a men’s retreat. I had been asked to lead a retreat for the men of his church and over the course of the weekend he told me about Emma, the daughter who had just been adopted into his family. That was a couple of years ago now, but just recently our paths crossed and I asked him how Emma was doing. As he filled me in I realized that I wanted to do a …

Songs for the Supper – Free music. Need me to say more than that? Cardiphonia: “Songs for the Supper is the 3rd in a collaboration of songs dedicated to serving under-emphasized themes in our worship music. … Some of these songs are quiet meditations, others look to the great rejoicing of the Lamb’s Feast. All of them reflect the incredible diversity of postures and approaches to our Lord’s table. “ Joel Osteen and Reality TV – Oh boy. “More than …

Should You Go to T4G?

Next April will bring the 2012 Together for the Gospel Conference–the 4th of these bi-annual conferences. What began in 2006 as a meeting between friends has expanded into a very large event with thousands attending. With a new, bigger venue, next year’s event promises to be bigger than ever. With the early bird registration period ending in just a few days (October 31), I was asked to mention T4G on this blog. I took the opportunity to speak to Matt …

William Tyndale – Glen remembers the death of William Tyndale. “This year I have marvelled at the beauty of so many ‘King James phrases’.  Yet on closer examination the great majority turn out to be Tyndale phrases.  Only around 20 of the 365 phrases I have been considering this year are original to the King James Bible.  And Tyndale has provided the bulk of the rest.” Kicking and Screaming – Al Mohler reflects on Piers Morgan’s interview with Joel Osteen. …
