4 Reasons to Teach the Bible’s Storyline by Trevin Wax – This is very good. One could also title this, “4 Reason to Know (or Learn) the Bible’s Storyline. I’m teaching an upcoming series on the Bible’s storyline with my teens at church; so it’s probably not surprising that I like this one a lot.

The Double Presumption of Calling to MinistryEldering, Economics, and Calling to Ministry, and Reframing “Calling”: Words to Churches and Aspiring Pastors by Bobby Jamieson – “I think the common language of ‘calling’ to ministry is slippery and possibly misleading. I don’t think it’s necessarily sinful or unbiblical. But I do think it can obscure some important issues that men aspiring to ministry, and the churches that encourage and assess them, should pay more attention to. So in this series of posts I’m going to dig into a few issues related to calling to ministry that we sometimes neglect.”

A Call to Resurgence by The Resurgence – Here’s a preview of Mark Driscoll’s new book A Call to Resurgence. You can also enter the book giveaway. This book looks very interesting. Christendom has surely died in America. And it would seem a large generation of Christians needs a kick in the pants to wake up, come to grips with this, and drastically change its posture towards our culture. It appears that Driscoll is calling for this stance of urgency.
