Daily Roundup for June 19, 2017

Here are the items and resources of interest for June 19, 2017:

Theology/Christianity:

  • The Scars That Have Shaped Me: How God Meets Us in Suffering — So many people are dealing with great suffering.  That is the nature of sin and living in a fallen world. Regardless, it is hard. This new book from Vaneetha Rendall Risner is highly recommended.  Be sure to watch the 9-minute video of her life. 
  • For parents that are broken hearted over wayward children, this brief article from Desiring God Ministries may be helpful. 
  • There are likely to be many articles written on the recent PCA General Assembly.  This one, however, is very good
  • Productivity tips for the busy pastor — You may not agree with all of these, and you may have your own, but these are a good start. 
  • A reformed guide to classical music — I enjoy classical music and often have it on while I work and study.  This is a helpful article written by John Brentnall
  • Don’t forget the Bible in pastoral counseling — an article written by Jay Sanders.

Daily Roundup for May 1, 2017

Daily Roundup for May 1, 2017

  Here are the items and resources of interest for May 1, 2017:

Theology/Christianity:

  • Five Mistakes Small Churches Are Likely to Make — from Christianity Today.
  • Children at the Lord’s Supper? — This is a useful article gleaned from Bavinck.
  • Some people refuse to be encouraged.  I have met some that have that problem.  You try and try, and try to encourage them and they simply refuse to accept it, graciously. This article Refusing to Be Encouraged is helpful on that subject.  
  • Should we preach like the Puritans?  Dr. Joel Beeke says NO and he also says YES.  Read them in order, starting with NO.
  • Starting with this edition of the Daily Roundup I will be offering Kindle Deals (probably not every day, but often). Today’s Kindle deal is about a subject that is vitally important: hospitality
  • Can’t We Please Talk About Something Else?! — One woman’s perspective on the subject that is getting much attention in the PCA.

Daily Roundup for April 21, 2017

Daily Roundup for April 21, 2017

  Here are the items and resources for April 21, 2017:

Theology/Christianity:

  • 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.

The Daily Roundup is published Monday – Friday. See you next week!
