Workman’s Toolbox

March 17, 2007

Preaching
* Expository Thoughts has commenced what looks to be a heavy-going, but valuable series on The Relationships Between the Testaments.
* According to Raymond Van Neste, some people in the pews do what substantive sermons. (HT: Transforming Sermons)
* Adrian Warnock – “the risks and rewards of using technology in sermon preparation.” It did appeal to my sense of humour that only a few posts later, Adrian asked for help regarding a technological problem!
* Tim Keller with a fascinating two-parter: Preaching in a Postmodern City part one, and part two.
* Randy McKinion offers some resources for preaching the psalms.

Theology
* This book by Steve Jeffery, Mike Ovey and Andrew Sach looks like an excellent treatment of the biblical basis for penal substitution.
* “Particular Redemption, the New Perspective and More with John Piper (and Bruce Ware)” – the latest audio interview over at Nine Marks.
* An interesting critique of Rob Bell’s latest book (Sex God) from someone who is sympathetic to his writings, but doesn’t always like his methods. (HT: Justin Buzzard)

Miscellaneous
* Eric Raymond was not impressed by his recent trip to Saddleback.
* Tony Reinke has started a new book review site: Take Up and Read.
* Fascinating: a non-Christian is reading through the whole bible and blogging about it. (HT: Transforming Sermons)
* Based on a recent survey, this is an interesting article on why so few younger men are entering full time Christian ministry in the UK.
* In his own words, Al Mohler has caused something of a “firestorm” by some recent comments on the issue of homosexuality. As he pleads, before jumping to conclusions, read the man himself.
* Here’s a great suggestion by Justin Taylor: make Operation World Pray Today your homepage.
* Tim Chester tries to define submission and headship in marriage, but not without difficulty!
* Last but not least, over at E-ministry notes a rather amusing spoof song about the Facebook obsession (if you don’t know what this is, don’t worry!).
