Free T4G Sessions, Liberating Black Theology, and the Sad Story of Jennifer Knapp

In a stunning twist of irony, The Gospel Coalition blog has all of the Together for the Gospel sessions posted online, while the T4G site does not.  And you thought the two did not interface.  It’s great that they do. I don’t know why, but CJ Mahaney’s session is not up.  I thought it was [Read More...]

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...]

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...]

The Link 9.25.09: Glenn Beck, The Way We Die, and Driscoll’s Free Stuff

This is an eclectic day.  As usual.  For the report on Ravi Zacharias, see number 7. 1. Time Magazine recently ran a piece on conservative commentator Glenn Beck.  Interesting read. 2. A piece to read from the NYT on the debate over health-care, end-of-life issues, and “death panels.” There’s a bunch to sort out here, [Read More...]

Don Carson, David Dockery, Tim Chester, and Ravi Zacharias: Events to Note (and Attend)

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. [Read More...]

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...]
