* Dr. Russell Moore discusses the “voodoo ecumenism of Bill Clinton” with Dr. Tony Campolo on the Albert Mohler Radio Program. Good discussion here and relevant to much of the current discussion regarding unity, cooperation, and consensus.
* Over at the T4G blog, Mark Dever shares an excerpt from C. S. Lewis on Calvinism, where Lewis explains, “I find the best plan is to take the Calvinist view of my own virtues and other people’s vices . . .”. Interesting excerpt indeed.
* Christopher Wright has written an article for CT’s Christian Vision Project entitled “An Upside-Down World” where he asks the question, “What must we learn, and unlearn, to be agents of God’s mission in the world?” He concludes, asserting that “the Cross must be as central to our social engagement as it is to our evangelism. There is no other power, no other resource, no other name through which we can offer the whole gospel to the whole person and the whole world than Jesus Christ crucified and risen.”
* Brent Thomas has written some good advice for us bloggers explaining its dangers and pitfalls. A must read for bloggers.
* Speaking of advice from bloggers, Nathan Finn has made some significant changes to his blog (and future blogging). While I have appreciated Nathan’s insight on current issues in the SBC, I look forward all the more to his research and studies in Baptist history.
* For those of you who are Arminian and do not want to discuss theology with Calvinists, Gordan Runyan has compiled a running list of sound-bytes and quotes to copy and paste for true drive-by commentating. These would be especially applicable to those who have memorized this song. Check yes or no? Uh . . .
* Blake White shared this very disturbing video which is an excerpt of the 1972 documentary of a charlatan Pentecostal preacher named Marjoe Gortner. If this is not a call for discernment, I don’t know what is!
* Tom Ascol recently announced that the new, expanded 20th anniversary edition of Dr. Tom Nettles’ classic work By His Grace and For His Glory is available from Founders Press for a special pre-publication discount of $19.50 (good until Feb. 16, 2007). The artwork on the cover is done by Dr. Nettles’ son, Rob, who happens to also work with me at UPS.
* Finally, for those of you who are studying the biblical languages, Amazon has the Biblia Sacra, a combination of BHS and NA27 in one binding for a nifty price of $88.17.
