I was pretty slammed at work this week, so I didn’t have as much time to peruse the blogosphere as I would have liked. Instead, I tried to find some good podcasts to listen to. One that’s worth subscribing to is Iconocast. The interviews are sometimes a little shotty, but they have attracted a host of interesting guests. For instance, this interview with Stanley Hauerwas was a real gem. My hunt for good listening material is still on, however, because work will only pick up from now until after the first of the year. So, if you have any suggestions, please pass them my way.
Whether you’re feeling distraught over this week’s election, or elated, John Mark Renyolds of Scriptorium Daily puts things in perspective. One of the books that has really helped me to navigate Christianity and politics is Greg Boyd’s, The Myth of a Christian Nation. You should buy, read it, and give it to a friend. But if you’re not going to do that, at least read this one-page summary of his argument.
Parchment & Pen is a blog by a (sometimes sickeningly) conservative Calvinist. But from time to time he offers nice overviews of basic Christian doctrines, like this one on the doctrine of the Trinity.
Finally, if you lead any Christian education, here is a new 8-week, adult Bible study that asks some tough questions of the Apostle Paul.
And, of course, you can always check out my delicious profile to see everything I’ve shared this week.
