I Like Pipe(r)

John Stephen PiperImage via Wikipedia

What do you get when you cross scholarly wisdom with a gospel-centered, passionate, pastoral heart? You get men like John Piper. I know that not everyone is a Piper 'fan', but regardless of your theological bent it's hard to argue that God isn't truly blessing the church today with JP's wisdom.

Case in point, take a look at his YouTube channel. There's some great stuff there. Some of the videos tackle very deep subjects. But there are also videos where JP answers questions I've never heard a pastor or theologian take the time to seriously consider from a biblical perspective. These are short videos so take a few minutes and watch a few that catch your eye. Even if you disagree I guarantee they will make you stop and think.

Isn't Technology Wonderful?

I came across this on Justin Taylor's blog: Between Two Worlds (which has recently moved by the way if you are a reader of his). I love this kind of stuff. It just goes to show how technology is rapidly changing just about everything we know. My first thought: will the church be able to keep up with these changes (and should we)? Enjoy.

Crossway's Trackback Thursday on C.S. Lewis

I read this one a few years back. Definitely worth reading.

"C.S. Lewis fans, this week our Trackback Thursday title is Jack: A Life of C.S. Lewis. Written by a longtime friend and colleague of the man his friends called “Jack,” this definitive biography of C. S. Lewis recounts the scholar’s relationships and experiences. Jack details his life at Kilns, his days at Magdalen College, meetings with the inklings, marriage to Joy Davidman Gresham, and the creative process that produced works such as the Chronicles of Narnia, Mere Christianity, and The Screwtape Letters. This book is an intimate account of the man who helped generations hear and understand the heart of Christianity."

"Here’s a reminder of how Trackback Thursday works: Simply link to the blog post from your blog, leave a comment on Crossway’s Facebook Page, or re-tweet Trackback Thursday on Twitter @Crosswaybooks. Winners are picked on Friday morning."
