* The much anticipated book, Pierced for Our Transgressions: Rediscovering the Glory of Penal Substitution, is currently in the LifeWay bookstore on campus! Now, the book is not officially out in the U.S. (although it has been out in the U.K. for some time now). Copies were obtained as it is a required textbook for a Ph.D. class, and several extra copies were obtained for general sale. The price is somewhat steep for a softcover ($31), but if you want to get your hands on this book early, here’s your chance.
* If any of you have frequented the Boyce Centennial Library (my home away from home), you will know that there have been several changes in recent months, not the least of which include that the air-conditioner finally got fixed, doors removed, new panting, new carpet, new catalog system (Library of Congress), and rearranging computers. But that is not all. The inside scoop is that they are expecting to release the new and improved website for the library, possibly by next week. A very cool note is that the site is being powered by WordPress.
* Now that we are officially in August, that means school is starting, budgets are being broken, and yes, the Andrew Fuller Conference is right around the corner! The conference dates are Aug. 27-28, and the cost is $60 (which includes, 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, and one dinner). If you have not considered attending the conference, let me encourage you to check it out!
* Over at Said at Southern, Tony Kummer has uploaded our first podcast with an interview with Dr. Russell Moore. In the podcast, Dr. Moore talks about everything from the gospel, culture, evangelism, and the upcoming Andrew Fuller conference. Expect more podcasts to come in the future.
* Although it is not scheduled to release until January 15, 2008, you can go to Amazon and view the cover and details of Dr. Mohler’s upcoming book, Culture Shift: Engaging Current Issues with Timeless Truth.
* While it has been out for a while, it is worth restating that the new issue of the Southern Baptist Journal of Theology is an important contribution to the current debate/controversy on the atonement. A couple of the articles are available to download, so be sure to read them for your edification.
