Reading the Church Fathers, Writing Well For God’s Glory and Bridges on our Power

Justin Taylor has a great post on Reading the Church Fathers: A Beginner’s Guide.

Over at TGC Reviews site there is a great interview with Justin Taylor, Collin Hansen, Kevin DeYoung, and John Starke on Clarity Seeking God’s Glory: A Discussion on Writing Well.

Lastly, a great quote I saw at this great blog I read:

The Christian is not like an automobile with a self-contained power source; rather, he is like an electric motor that must be constantly connected to an outside current for its power. Our source of power is in the risen Christ, and we stay connected to Him by beholding Him in His Word and depending on Him in prayer.- Jerry Bridges, from The Fruitful Life

Book Review; God in Everyday Life by Bradt and Kress


In God in Everyday Life, Brad Bradt and Eric Kress Do what I have not seen in any other commentary; they combine verse by verse expositional helps and outlines of the text, an example expository sermon and biblical counseling case studies. I used Eric Kress’ astute, concise notes on Ruth this summer and found him to be a steady guide. Warm and pastoral in tone with a great deal of care for getting at the meaning behind the text. This commentary on Ruth is a valuable addition to anyone’s library. I found the outlines of each chapter so helpful as I looked for themes in the book. the biblical counseling elements in the work add to the ability to apply the book of Ruth and it’s lessons to our lives more readily. i am thankful for this work and commend it.
