Books

Links Worth a Look

My editor, Kevin Meath, has written a new post on his personal blog about writing and editing for a popular audience.

The audio and video for the recent Desiring God National Conference on John Calvin is now online.

Tim Keller's new book, Counterfeit Gods: The Empty Promises of Money, Sex, and Power, and the Only Hope that Matters, releases in less than a month. You can pre-order now.

I've been reading Jim Belcher's new book Deep Church: A Third Way Beyond Emerging and Traditional. I deeply resonate with this book and hope lots of people will read it - especially those who are concerned about this debate and don't know quite where they fit. I may write a review later, but if you want to know more, check out Steve McCoy's review. (Steve's blog put me onto the book).

BTW, Jim is also a pastor and you can visit his church's website to hear some of his sermons.

Scot McKnight has been blogging through Deep Church as well, over at http://blog.beliefnet.com/jesuscreed/

I look forward to your review of Deep Church, if you decide to write it.

So many questions....

(Ok, I really meant to leave that comment on your book excerpt post. *sigh* Can I still blame mommy brain?)

Thanks for the link, mwh. I took a quick look at McKnight's blog, then discovered that Kevin DeYoung (who also wrote a book on the emerging church) has also reviewed Deep Church.

Belcher comments on both McKnight's and DeYoung's blogs. It's good to see author-reader interaction.

Amanda, I knew what you meant. And yeah, you can still blame mommy brain! (I sometimes feel the same way, even though I'm a daddy not a mommy!)
