It seems like I came across a TON of good content this week. Maybe I was just more aware since I started this Friday Link thing. I actually weeded out some good stuff because I felt like I had too much.
My wife is out of town this weekend, which I don’t like. But I’ve got some studying to do, as usual, so I’ll be busy anyway. Also, I’m planning on shooting some basketball at a local park in Lakewood, the most booming metropolis in all of middle Tennessee. Just thought you should know.
Remember to pray for the situation in Japan. This is a devastating time. Pray especially that the Lord would use this to open people’s hearts to His gospel.
Without further adieu, here are this week’s Friday Links:
- Matthew McAffee, a professor at FWBBC, wrote a piece over at the Helwys Society Forum called “Can Archaeology Deliver?” HSF is run by a good group of FWB guys, and I recommend their site for some good reading (although don’t believe a word Jesse Owens says).
- Tim Keller has a new book out called King’s Cross. The book looks at the life of Jesus according to the Gospel of Mark. Tim Challies has a review of it, in case you want to know more. I just finished Generous Justice by Keller and enjoyed it very much.
- Carl Trueman has a very interesting critique of Rob Bell’s use of Luther. In Bell’s new book, Love Wins, he insinuates that Luther may have been a Universalist. Trueman takes issue with this and thoughtfully shows how Bell was incorrect in that insinuation. You might want me to shut up about Bell and his book, but a LOT of twentysomethings listen to Bell, and will base their views about Hell after Bell’s. Don’t be surprised in a few months if people start claiming that Luther was a Universalist just because of Bell’s misuse of him.
- Speaking of Hell, Dr. Al Mohler, President of SBTS (my seminary), has a one and two-part feature on Hell at his blog.
- Steven Furtick has two pet-peeves about worship.
- Justin Taylor blogged about J. C. Ryle’s eight symptoms of false doctrine. Very good stuff.
- Here is a free chapter from the book Don’t Call It a Comeback. The chapter was written by Tim Challies, and it is about how Jesus Christ is the only way and our only hope. Check it out.
- We have a new blogger here @fwb21, Rachel D. Check out her bio and read her posts!
