Quick HIts :: May 17, 2006

Some of this info is dated but nonetheless worthy of being mentioned . . . * James Thompson has recently posted the audio of the Band of Bloggers panel discussion over at the BoB website. Currently it is in six parts but will be condensed to one MP3 shortly. Thanks James for doing this! * The panel discussion of the T4G Conference is now available at the Sovereign Grace store (along with the general session audio). * Marty Duren has noticed that Baptist Press is taking its cues from bloggers these days. Interesting. Hello Mr. New Media. * James White has provided the email exchange with he and Ergun Caner in an updated PDF file which can be downloaded. It is long and not for the faint of heart but worth perusing. * Justin Taylor provides the links for the new Desiring God interview of John Piper about this years National Conference The Supremacy of Christ in a Postmodern World (of which I plan on attending). * Tim Challies has written a must-read piece for bloggers which calls for accountability through visibility. I have been keeping a folder for advice from bloggers about blogging, and this one definitely is a keeper. * Ochuk recently wrote a lenghty article about his response to the T4G Statement pertaining to the "gender hierarchy" or complentarianism. * Out of Ur (CT's blog) has recently interviewed Donald Miller. * Wes Kenney updated his chart of CP giving of FBC Springdale (where Dr. Ronnie Floyd is pastor). No commentary necessary.

I read the Miller interview. I'll be honest, I have read two of Donald Miller's books and I think he is a really talented writer, and I think that he is probably making some sort of positive gospel influence on people that I'll never get a chance to interact with. That being said, several things bother me about his approach, and one of those things that comes through in the CT interview and in his writing is that he rarely cites scripture to explain his spiritual views. I believe scripture can usually be explained with scripture, that the bible is analagous to itself. Milelr seems to miss that, and that troubles me.

Its also a bit ironic that while Miller debunks those who would view Christianity as en vogue (which I completely agree with), his books, especially Blue like Jazz, have become "hip and cool" for would-be believers.

Thanks for the link. Not to be picky, but I'm not related to the Massachusetts Kennedys. It's Kenney.

Have a good one.

Gavin,

I think what troubles you troubles a lot of people. He is the success story of the pomo pop culture which appears to be diabolically opposed to biblical theology or a confessional faith. My links are not an endorsement of what is being referred to, but simply to point people to articles I think worth reading.

Wes,

Sorry about that! Correction made.
