Here are the items and resources of interest for July 4, 2017:
- Nick Napier, a friend, and graduate of Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary writes a helpful and though provoking article.
What is wrong with this? Why is it wrong to “hearken back” to when things were simpler and outwardly more “noble?” Why is it wrong to fantasize that you were born in/live in medieval or Victorian or Edwardian Eras? (For whatever reason, these seem to be the two of which I see most Christian pining.) What is wrong with longing for a bonnet and suspended trousers? Well, there are several reasons Christians should not romanticize time periods or particular cultures:
- New books you should know — a list compiled by The Gospel Coalition.
- It is the 4th of July so this article should be of interest to someone.
Here are the items and resources of interest for June 27, 2017:
- The Importance of Being a Pastor’s Wife — a talk given by Michael Kruger at the most recent PCA General Assembly. I have not vetted the audio and only offer it here for information purposes.
- Some new titles at Westminster Bookstore:
- Memrise — I use this free service daily to keep up with my Greek and Hebrew vocabulary. There are many other uses as well.
- A story of one woman’s encounter with pornography.
- Ten ways to cultivate “gossip-resistance.” — an article that all leaders of the church should read. In my experience, some of the biggest gossips are teaching elders/pastors. It should not be that way.
- Kindle Deals for Christians — These resources made available by challies.com.

Here are the items and resources for April 21, 2017:
- Ministry can be a roller coaster ride. This article talks about it. Authored by Nick Batzig.
- John Knox and the Lord’s Supper: Some Practical Points —
Up to thispoint it has been shown that, for John Knox, the Lord’s Supper is ordained of God; Christ is truly, but spiritually present; and it is a great blessing, but a blessing that is reserved for God’s own people. Knox’s hatred (and that is not putting it too strongly) of the Mass has also been considered. However, an examination of Knox’s teaching on the Lord’s Supper would be incomplete without considering briefly some practical aspects. Knox’s convictions regarding the regulative principle of worship, and his position that “The Table of the Lord is then most rightly ministered, when it approaches most nighto Christ’s own action…” carried with it a number of practical implications. (Knox, “First Book of Discipline” in Works, 2:187)
- Paul and James and the Subject of Justification
- Report of the PCA Committee on Women Serving in the Church — it has been released and, thankfully, early enough to read and consider before going to General Assembly in June.
