Devotional Resources for Your iPod + Writing For The Empty Nest

I am helped daily by good audio resources on my iPod. I’d like to share two resources that are new to me and very encouraging. Many of us never hear any preaching from the mainline denominations. Our entire exposure to preaching is from evangelicals and fundamentalists, but many mainline preachers are worth hearing. I’ve discovered […]

Stephen Nichols has a proven track record as a teacher of church history who can write on the level of the interested layman and keep the important matters important, the obscure in a safe place and the relevant on the front burner. His introduction to the life and work of Martin Luther is the best […]

When You’ve Read My 800 Page Theology Book, The Bible’s Simple Meaning Will Be Obvious

Answers to “Can You Be Too God-Centered?” + What you can learn from reactions to a provocative question

I’d like to do two things in this post. Really, this should be two posts, but I’m lazy.

First, thoughts. You go […]
