The Big Idea: Providing the best of the best around the Net. Links to the top five Christian blog posts of the week—posts that provide robust, rich, and relevant insights for living.
We Are One
Every pastor and every church member needs to read this post. Pastor Tullian Tchividjian of Coral Ridge explains why his church has “gone blended.” That is, rather than divide his congregation between contemporary praise music and traditional church hymns, Coral Ridge has decided that it is a theological, Gospel issue to use both types of music. Read his compelling reasons in We Are One.
The Bible Is Not About You
Justin Taylor links us to, summarizes, and comments on Tim Keller’s sermon that The Bible Is Basically Not About You. It’s all about Him.
The Archer and the Arrow
32 Minutes of Holy Encouragement
Pastor Thabiti Anyabwile blogs daily at Pure Church. He loves highlighting other pastors as in this post on 32 Minutes of Holy Encouragement. In it he links to Pastor Ligion Duncan’s sermon “Every Dream Lost. Every Dream Fulfilled.” Of it, Pastor Thabiti says, “It’s riveting from start to finish, filled with hope for all of us who have, are, or will experience deep loss in God’s providence.”
Bob Newhart Counseling
Justin Taylor’s Between Two Worlds Blog has a great guest post by biblical counselor David Powlison. It starts with the classic Bob Newhart Stop It! Video. Then Dr. Powlison explains several features of robust biblical counseling in The Riches of Biblical Counseling.
