How To Understand and Apply the New Testament

Whenever I begin to read a new book, I immediately look to the opening pages for a clear statement of purpose. Why did the author write this work? What sets it apart from others? When it comes to Andy Naselli’s How to Understand and Apply the New Testament, he wastes no time. Here are his opening sentences: “I love God, and I love studying his Word and his world. I wrote this book to help you study the New Testament, …

John MacArthur Wants Us to Grow Up

John MacArthur is in the midst of penning a series of articles that will address (and encourage and scold) the Young, Restless, Reformed movement–this thing they call the New Calvinism. I have one great concern about this. I will tell you what it is, but only after I give a brief overview of what MacArthur has said so far. MacArthur’s series will extend to four parts (after which there will be a couple of follow-ups by other writers). In the …

A La Carte (7/22)

Banning Weird Names – “In the past two years, the country [New Zealand] has banned 102 names deemed to be too out there. The list includes Baron, Bishop, Duke, General, Judge, Justice, King, Knight and Mr. Those names were banned because they were deemed to be too similar to titles. The name Messiah has also been turned down, as have requests to name kids 89, C, D, I and T. As well, the agency has refused to give a pass …

Love of the Greatest Kind

Jason Dunham of Scio, New York, joined the U.S. Marines in the year 2000. Just 18 years old when he enlisted, he quickly showed leadership ability and was chosen as a squad leader in Kilo Company, Third Battalion, Seventh Marine Regiment. Dunham’s unit took part in the invasion of Iraq and it was here that he would perform an act of outstanding gallantry. On April 14, 2004, Corporal Dunham was in the town of Karabilah, leading a patrol to scout potential …

A La Carte (7/13)

When Piper Touched My Chin – I thoroughly enjoyed this article from Clint Archer. “My question was a thinly veiled attempt to tease out some Piper-esque wisdom on this potentially spicy topic. He leaped over my trap with a single bound. His underwhelming answer was decaffeinated of all controversy. No passionate gesticulating, no mention of potty-mouth preaching, in short nothing to Tweet. So I did what every seminoid who can’t take a hint would do: I got in line after …

4 Remarkable Things about John MacArthur

One of the many gifts my parents bequeathed to me is a love of history. I have not seen my parents read many Christian living or spiritual growth books, but I have seen them read countless biographies and histories. One of my great joys is to buy them books for birthdays and Christmas (and any other occasion I can think of) and then to talk with them about what they’ve read. My mother recently read the new biography of John …

John MacArthur: Servant of the Word & Flock

I have a deep respect for John MacArthur. I admire the man himself, having met him several times; I admire the teacher, having had many opportunities to sit under his teaching; I admire the writer, having had his books (literally) change my life; I admire the leader, having spent a lot of time with the people he surrounds himself with–always an interesting means of finding the measure of a man. MacArthur is a man who has been used by God in …

Win the New Biography of John MacArthur!

Banner of Truth recently announced that Iain Murray’s next book, a biography, will be titled John MacArthur: Servant of the Word and Flock. Murray has previously authored highly-praised biographies of Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Jonathan Edwards, John Murray, and others. I have had the opportunity to read John MacArthur and enjoyed it tremendously. Though by Murray’s own admission it is unlikely to prove the definitive biography of MacArthur (and really, how can any biography be definitive while the subject is still alive?), …
