Daily Roundup for August 15, 2017

Now that my wife and I have moved to Newport, TN and have settled into a normal routine, I will be returning to my blog, working on some specific articles that will be released in the near future. 

Here are the items and resources of interest for August 15, 2017:



Theology/Christianity:

  • The Calvinist movie — a trailer for the upcoming movie. You can watch it here and pre-order it here
  • Are you called to be a preacher and a minister of the gospel? This article is very good. Written by Al Baker
  • A Well Spent Sabbath — written by David Strain. From the article:

For a few people today, an hour or two on Sunday mornings is occupied with public worship, but for most people, the idea that Sunday is the Christian Sabbath—an entire day set apart for worship, rest, and ministry—is entirely novel. And yet, in an age of frenetic and unrelenting busyness, when technology allows us to stay plugged in to the world twenty-four-seven, when entertainment becomes the de facto purpose of so many lives, nothing could be more countercultural, nor bear more eloquent testimony to a Christian’s citizenship in another world, than a well-spent Lord’s Day.

The debate between paper books and e-readers has been vicious since the first Kindle came out in 2007. Most arguments have been about the sentimental versus the practical, between people who prefer how paper pages feel in their hands and people who argue for the practicality of e-readers. But now science has weighed in, and the studies are on the side of paper books.

Blogging Through the Bible

Blogging Through the Bible

Beginning August 14th, I am going to be “blogging (not slogging!) through the Bible”. My plan is to write a summary of each chapter I read in God’s Word along with some notes, observations and, if I am feeling very zealous, some comments on other items to study that come out of the chapter. 

So, my plan is as follows:

MON-SAT: one chapter from the Old Testament, beginning in Genesis.
TUES and THURS: one chapter from the New Testament, beginning in Matthew
