I’ve enjoyed a recent round of posts on seminary from SBTS MDiv graduate Patrick Schreiner.  Patrick is a sharp thinker and writer.  I would encourage you to read his short, punchy posts on the seminary experience and how to do it well.

What Is the Gospel, and Why Care?

Greg Gilbert’s brand-new What Is the Gospel? (Crossway–IXMarks, 2010) is dynamite.  Pick this book up to remind yourself of the essential of the essentials.  A short (127pp), small, readable, punchy text, What Is the Gospel? dispels the cloudiness surrounding the exact character of the gospel today.  Pastors, disciplers, Bible study leaders, and many others would [Read More...]

The Ten Best Films of 2009, the Year That Wasn’t

David Denby, film critic at The New Yorker, just released his list of the top-ten films of 2009.  Because I am an American, and thus am genetically predisposed to find top-ten lists interesting, I noticed it. Actually, it’s well worth looking at.  Denby is a skilled critic.  I like that he, with all TNY commentators, [Read More...]

Live-Blog: Mark Dever at the Gospel Growth Conference

I’m here at the People Growth conference, cosponsored by the Henry Center, where Mark Dever is currently speaking on “The Four P’s of Ministry.”  However, I think that he may have retitled, or subtitled, the message, “The Person and Work of the Shepherd” from 1 Peter 5. Not sure about that. Without further ado, here [Read More...]

I wanted to compile a list of some notable conferences coming up that folks should be aware of.  I get sent notice of great events somewhat regularly, and it’s a privilege to play a very small part of conference promotion.  All of these events are coming up in the next month or so. 1.

Ministry Is About Faithfulness, Not Numbers: Gospel Growth 2009

But don’t take my word for it–let the Gospel Growth=People Growth conference to be held October 14-16, 2009 at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (Deerfield, IL) convince you.  I highly recommend that you go if you’re in the area–you’ll benefit from talks by Don Carson, Mark Dever, Philip Jensen, and more.  It’s kind of a mini-Gospel Coalition.

1. Jonathan Leeman of 9Marks has a great series of posts that discusses how immanence and transcendence relate to various aspects of Christian ministry.  It’s way, way deeper than your average deal.  Here’s part one; part two; and part three.  2. John Piper discusses what to do when storms, or “tornadoes,” hit in life. (Photo: BlisstheFamily) [Read More...]
