Do you want to grow in your faith in Christ? Yes? I have a few thoughts for you. First: instead of avoiding theology and focusing solely on piety, read and study theology in order to grow in your walk with Christ. The two are not and must not be seen as separate. They work in hand [Read More...]

Great Books: Josh Moody’s “No Other Gospel”

Without a doubt, one of the preachers I most look up to and learn from is Josh Moody of College Church in Wheaton, Illinois.  Josh is a humble man with an outsize résumé–BA from Cambridge, PhD from Cambridge (in none other than Jonathan Edwards), missionary to Georgia (the country, not the Dawgs) and Azerbaijan, husband [Read More...]

Is The Gospel Coalition a Good Thing? Is Harold Ockenga Like John Piper?

You can find scintillating answers to these and a number of other questions in an interview (part one, part two) I just did with historical theologian Nathan Finn. Nathan graciously asked me several questions following the release of the book I edited with David Mathis of Desiring God, The Pastor as Scholar, the Scholar as [Read More...]

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...]

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...]

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...]

At The Gospel Coalition

For the next three days, I’ll be at The Gospel Coalition.  I’ll try to do some updates from the conference, but I’m not sure how much posting I’ll be able to do. I’ve been looking forward to this for months, and I’m excited for Band of Bloggers and the Piper-Carson event this Thursday night.  Blessings [Read More...]
