B003D0TAM8.01._SX490_SCLZZZZZZZ_V190274968_I’ve been more out of the office than in lately. Once again, there are many good articles worth considering.

First, some free stuff (I love free stuff). This month’s free audio book from Christian Audio is Stott’s insightful book “Basic Christianity.” Also Sinclair Ferguson’s wonderful book “In Christ Alone” is free. Finally, Wiersbe’s “Be Equipped (Deuteronomy): Acquiring the Tools for Spiritual Success” is free for the taking.

Based on my limited experience, one of the most difficult things we have to do in life is forgive others. Many of us have a list of personal Hitlers in our lives. Here Tullian illustrates the truth that people who are forgiven, forgive.

As we leave church on a Sunday morning we might very well discuss with our family whether or not we liked the sermon. Tim Challies says that this sort of critiquing isn’t what we should be doing with sermons. As you might suspect, I appreciate what he says.

People who are opposed to Calvinism typically don’t use scripture to argue against it. I suspect this is because scripture is the Calvinist’s home court. Usually the mode of attack is more straw man based. Caricatures, misinformed myths of Calvinism are attacked. Michael Patton discusses twelve common myths about Calvinism. Even those who believe in the doctrines of grace should read what he has to say.

Finally, here is a encouraging post about the power of singing. The piece was written with Sunday mornings in mind, however, I think that the power of gospel-centered music he articulates is available the rest of the week as well.
