Each week we will be highlighting important resources. Check back each Friday to see what we have dug up for you. From this week’s cache:
1. The Gift of God’s Judgment: Joe Rigney – Rigney says, “It’s no secret that American Christians are conflicted about this election. What should we do when faced with two candidates who fall so radically short of basic decency, honesty, and integrity?”
2. Packer at Ninety: Timothy George – George notes, “It has been my privilege to know and work closely with Jim Packer for the past thirty-five years, only a fraction of his long and still amazingly productive career. I have seen him buffeted by adversity, and criticized unfairly, but I have never seen him sag.”
3. Why Multigenerational Community Matters: Adam McClendon – McClendon says, “How we receive encouragement and correction matters. This point shifts the focus to the one being approach. We must remember that no one generation has mastered the Christian life. Age is not an excuse for sin: elderliness or youthfulness.”
4. God’s Kingdom Come: Joshua Torrey – Torrey says, “In age heightened success of enlightenment thinking, individualism has ruled the day. This has expressed itself in renewed expressions of individualistic ethics, politics, and religion. Hedonism rules the day of ethics. Libertarian politics is the increasing majority opinion of young voters. Self-centered deism has become the political drug of western culture. This has become true of not only liberal Christianity but also its more conservative branches.”
5. Why Parenting Strategies Won’t Work: Paul Tripp – Tripp notes, “Parents, God will bless you with his presence, power, wisdom, and grace. He faithfully parents you, so that by his faithful grace you can faithfully parent your children. In every moment of parenting, the wise heavenly Father is working on everybody in the room.”
