Catching Up With Mark Driscoll

I have now published all the Mark Driscoll material from his recent visit to the UK. Don't miss the video interviews, and the Dwell material, as well as the talks from Brighton. There is a lot to absorb there. There are also three talks for church elders that I was not present at.Since his return to the US, however, this man has been nothing short of busy!He has interviewed J. I. Packer on Young Christian Leaders, and Homosexuality. He also wrote a series of blog posts on … [Read more...]

Digital Works of John M. Frame on Logos Bible Software Platform

I'd like to introduce you to the latest addition to my Logos library — The Collected Works of John M. Frame, Volume 1, Theology. For me, the more books I have in my library the better since it increasingly means that I can do all my Bible study without ever opening a book. Thanks to the fantastic resources of the base collections (available with a 25 per cent discount if you order via my link) and the many commentaries and other books I have collected over they years, I am able to simply … [Read more...]

Pre-Order ESV Study Bible in USA or Europe

I haven't yet mentioned online the ESV Study Bible which Wayne Grudem and Justin Taylor, among others, have been working on furiously for what must seem to them to be an eternity. There is a whole website devoted to it where you can download samples of the work that will make you impatient for October when this will be shipped.This looks to me to be the study Bible for the 21st century. Laid out in a visually attractive way and stuffed full of incredibly helpful material, I can't think of any … [Read more...]

Has Wayne Grudem Been the Victim of Internet Pirates?

A number of bloggers have been mentioning that Wayne Grudem's Systematic Theology is online for free. I felt it was a bit suspicious, however, because of the web address that was being shared—it contained only numbers, i.e. in this type of format—202.202.202.202. That is generally not a good sign in a web address. I have deliberately NOT linked to that new site for the following reason:I have made some inquiries with IVP, the UK publisher, and their initial response is that they … [Read more...]

New Iain Murray Book on Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Most Mondays I post something by or about Doctor Martyn Lloyd-Jones, one of my historical heroes. Today is an example of this habit. While I was preoccupied with New Word Alive, Martin Downes posted the chapter list for a new book on Lloyd-Jones by the Doctor's assistant. The book, entitled "Lloyd-Jones—Messenger of Grace," is broad-ranging, and will look at issues like Lloyd-Jones' attitude toward the Holy Spirit, preaching, and the impact of his sermons. It sounds like a very interesting b … [Read more...]

Logos Mac Alpha is Here

Its not complete. Several important features do not work yet. BUT, you can now get Logos Bible Software to work on a mac! I really, really like the interface. If you own a mac, and either have a second PC or run parallels there is no no reason NOT to buy a logos package of your own as you CAN use your unlocked PC books on the new mac version. Dont uninstall Parallels yet as its still early days. If you are like me, and don't want to waste too much hard disk space you can get parallels logos … [Read more...]

How to Build Multicultural Churches

Thankfully, many people today seem to have moved on from the ideas of the "homogenous church growth principle." I never could see how that whole idea wasn't just a thinly veiled form of racism, or at the very least, an accommodation with the racism of others. I think I would prefer to be a part of a church aiming to be multicultural, even if that means it might not grow as quickly as one where people's eager desire to flock together with others like themselves is not challenged.Having said that, … [Read more...]
