The Link 5.15.09: Star Trek’s Power, Carson on TGC, and the Millionaire Tire-Changer

1. Caught a great cultural insight in Anthony Lane’s hilarious New Yorker review of the new Star Trek movie: “[J. J. Abrams] is the perfect purveyor of fictions to a generation so easily and instinctively jaded that what it craves, above all, is a storteller who—with or without artistic personality, and regardless of any urge [Read More...]

This just in: the media for the Piper-Carson event is here.  The Desiring God blog has all the goods, and believe me, they are nice, as the event was shot in high-definition video.  If your computer can handle it, I highly recommend that you watch these talks and the Q&A through the video.

Reflections on The Gospel Coalition, Band of Bloggers, and Piper-Carson

Whew.  It’s been quite a week.  Here’s my first opportunity to reflect on the three events I was involved with. The Gospel Coalition Ben Peays did a tremendous job with this conference.  It went off without a hitch.  The speakers all edified their audience and honored the Lord.  I personally enjoyed the panel discussion on [Read More...]

The Link 4.17.09: God’s Will, Ware’s Teaching, and CEO Salaries

1. Kevin DeYoung has just written a really fun and helpful book called Just Do Something about God’s will.  I highly recommend it.  Very quick read, and dispels a lot of confusion about this most agonizing of subjects.  I liked it so much, I picked up my copy of DeYoung’s Why We’re Not Emergent and [Read More...]

The Week-est Link, February 22, 2008: Mohler, Carson, and One Powerful Song

1. Andy Naselli, a friend from TEDS and PhD student in New Testament (and D. A. Carson’s research guy) blogs about the online history of Southern Seminary that I worked on a few years back. I’m linking to it here because Andy lays out the site’s content in a really helpful way. If you’ve never [Read More...]

The Week-est Link, Jan. 4, 2008

1. A look at the Emergent Church movement by PBS. The video is 10:44 long. It’s got some interesting material, and commentary from a Trinity Evangelical Divinity School professor, Don Carson. I’m hoping to take a class from him in coming days. The video shows us that the Emergent Church is a confused movement, a [Read More...]
