1. Acts 29 is staging a cool conference in St. Louis in a few weeks. Looks very interesting.
2. Tim Keller speaking at Google. Glad to see Keller getting such a powerful evangelistic opportunity.
3. Mark Driscoll’s new book, Death By Love, looks moving. The graphics are, anyway. Check out the website. Driscoll uses a real-life story of transformation to highlight an aspect of Christology. Here’s a paragraph from the news release on the book: “Driscoll, one of America’s most influential pastors, and Breshears, a respected theologian, explain that Christ’s death has real-life implications for AIDS, demonic oppression, adultery, divorce, molestation, and suicidal ideation—for every manner of sin committed by or against a person. Each chapter includes a brief description of the life story of the person to whom most of the chapter is written, a letter to the person explaining one aspect of the cross and how it applies to him or her, answers to common questions about issues raised in the chapter, and discussion questions.”
4. Did you see the new site devoted to a speaking event with John Piper and D. A. Carson? If not, you should check it out.
5. Andy Naselli highlights one of the 100+ videos from the Gospel Coalition resources. This one features my pastor, Mike Bullmore, on natural disasters.
6. In the New York Times, a middle-aged woman ruminates about the significance of her life. Some thoughtful parts. Life is fleeting, and people come to realize that, whether they are saved or not. It’s interesting that this realization leads most often to sadness. The human heart can sense danger, it seems.
–Have a fun and spiritually nourishing weekend, all.
