A daily mashup of book recommendations, articles, and videos for your information, edification, and enjoyment.
THE NEW MARTIN LUTHER MOVIE | PATHEOS
Gene Veith: I’m not a huge fan of this hybrid of documentary and drama, but this one works as well as I’ve seen. Luther’s life is so interesting and so inherently dramatic that the narrative is gripping and entertaining, even though it is continually interrupted by the scholars.
THE HORROR OF CRUCIFIXION | DESIRING GOD
Tony Reinke: This week we celebrate the death of our Savior. And today we are going to look at the crucifixion from its historical and physical realities.
IT’S ALL ABOUT THE RECOVERY | CHRISTWARD COLLECTIVE
Nick Batzig: When we have sinned in our Christian life or made a error in judgment in pastoral ministry, we need to remember that so much of the Christian life and pastoral ministry is in the recovery.
SOME HELPS FOR FAMILY WORSHIP | VASSAL OF THE KING
Geoffrey Kirkland: What is family worship? What does it look like? How does one get started? Is it really doable in our ‘fast-paced society’? This is the outline that I provided our men to guide us in our discussion through this important topic.
Jared Wilson: If you’re one of those rah-rah guys firing on all emotional cylinders for everything from bake sales and the book table to baptisms and baby dedications, you create an equality between minutiae and missional milestones that can be disorienting, and ultimately dulling. But more directly, just remember that if everything is exciting, nothing is.
