An Awkward Interview on a New book

Links of the Week

  1. Tim Keller on The importance of hell. I realize the doctrine of hell is always a debated topic (especially in light of Rob Bell’s new book), but Keller offers some great insight, as usual, on how to handle this discussion and why it is important.
  2. Sex is cheap. Definitely highlights a major problem in culture, marriages and gives great insight into how the church can speak into the lives of men and women.
  3. 6 unfair market advantages you should steal from Apple. Definitely some things pastors and churches could learn from Apple.
  4. Russell Moore on God, Freedom, and “The Adjustment Bureau.”
  5. Chan Kilgore on Creating a culture of multiplication in your church.
  6. A very helpful review of Rob Bell’s new book (from someone who actually read the book).
  7. Jesus Christ:  The Only Way and Our Only Hope. If you have ever wrestled with this question or had to answer it, this is definitely worth reading. It is a free chapter from Tim Challies from the book Don’t Call it a Comeback.
