B003D0TAM8.01._SX490_SCLZZZZZZZ_V190274968_Last week we were up at our family’s cabin above Butte Meadows. There are a couple of phone lines but no TV and very slow internet. This to say we hadn’t heard a thing about Ferguson until we returned. I’m not qualified to comment in any way about the event. Thabiti Anyabwile is moving back to the States. I do think what he writes is worth thinking about. Ray Ortlund appreciates his honest post.

John Piper articulates what happens to us at conversion. This a helpful primer about our salvation.

This month’s free audio book from Christian Audio is Anna and the King. “This poignant story of Anna Leonowens and the King of Siam has captured the fancy of millions worldwide through not only the book, but the play The King and I. Wonderfully narrated by Anne Flosnik and nominated for a prestigious Audie Award in 2013, it is certainly one of the most entertaining audiobooks we have given away.”

Often when reading the Bible we interpret too literalistically. Don’t throw rocks yet. When something is symbolical we can easily miss the point of what is being said. I’m “all thumbs.” What do you picture when I say that? Yeah, you don’t imagine that I have five thumbs on each hand. Clumsy, yes, but not five thumbs. Too often when trying to interpret prophecy we default to a literal interpretation. So when the Bible says that there is no sea in heaven does it mean that there will be no long walks on the beach? R. C. Sproul unpacks the meaning of this enigmatic line.
