Being that it’s Friday, and I haven’t posted in a couple weeks on Respectable Sins, I figured I would update y’all. Ken and I have had a busy couple weeks – Ken especially with traveling to the Big D for the PCA General Assembly. Today he posted on the final chapter in the book, called “Where Do We Go From Here?” You can find it over yonder at the New Covenant PCA blog. You can read the post by clicking here. If you didn’t get a chance to read the book or follow along with us, I still highly recommend reading it. You can buy it for a good price at Westminster Bookstore here.
The last chapter was a good wrap-up of the book, though I agree with Ken in saying that the issues brought up in the book (namely rooting out our subtle or respectable sins and realizing just how big a deal sin is in our lives) should not be forgotten with the closing of the book. For me, the book was very good at showing me how “good” of a sinner I am, and how much I am in need of a Saviour.
We have something in the works for our next blogging book “project,” so stay tuned.
