House Cleaning [August 8th, 2009]

  • Logos Bible Software is celebrating the launch of their new online Bible by giving away 72 ultra-premium print Bibles at a rate of 12 per month for six months. The Bible giveaway is being held at Bible.Logos.com and you can get up to five different entries each month! After you enter, be sure to check out Logos and see how it can revolutionize your Bible study.
  • I am a total fantasy geek.  As with any good fantasy geek, my two favorite authors (in that genre) are J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis.  Both of these men were top notch linguistic scholars at Oxford University.  Apparently, at one point, these two (who were also great friends) were going to collaborate on a book on the subject of language.  How cool would that have been?!?!  (HT: JHG)
  • Over the course of the next nine years, 9 Marks Ministries and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, are going to be partnering to do series of conferences on the 9 Marks of a healthy church.  This years theme is “God Exposed”, focusing on the centrality of expository preaching to the church. (HT: Founders)
  • In the Southern Baptist Convention, there has been a lot of debate recently on the subject of Calvinism.  One issue, involved with that, is “Which comes first: faith or regeneration?”  James Galyon made a couple of posts on that subject this week: "Born Again" in the SBC, Whitefield and the New Birth.
  • Dr. D. A. Carson is one of my heroes.  Apparently within the next year, or so, he is having six books published!  If I had the money, I would get all of them, as well as all the other books he’s ever had published (besides the ones I already own).  Andy Naselli, while guest blogging for JT, gives us a taste of two of those books, as well as related audio resources.
  • This spring the Gospel Coalition posted a video from D. A. Carson explaining what Biblical inerrancy is and how essential it is. (HT: Andy Naselli)

    If you cannot see the above video, use the following link and go and watch it: D. A. Carson - What does inerrancy mean? Is it essential to Christian belief?
  • This week, the best friend that I have had in recent years (besides my wife of course!!) moved away.  He is heading off to seminary at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY.  He wrote a good bye post to his church on his blog earlier in the week: Why I am Filled with Joy and Sadness, Tears and Gladness .  Good bye Mike!  May you continue to shine with that borrowed light!
