Information Overload

Some really good reading this time around.

The frequently brilliant yet accessible D.A. Carson discusses things for Christians to think about regarding technology. [ht: JT]

WTS dean and self-proclaimed “middle-aged git” Carl Trueman bluntly, scathingly, and scholarly writes against Christian accommodation to and over-engagement with “culture.” A must read. [ht: Greg]

Some solutions are proposed to the rampant biblical illiteracy in evangelicalism (which is a big reason why evangelicalism is drifting more and more to “moralistic therapeutic deism“). [ht: Greg]

Reformation21 started Blogging the Institutes on January 5, and it’s not too late to join in the fray. Sinclair Ferguson is doing the blogging this week. Princeton Seminary is doing something similar, though their schedule is a bit more aggressive. However, they are posting the daily readings online. D. Wilson has been posting helpful study questions each day based on the Princeton schedule.

Now is as good a time as any to subscribe to Modern Reformation magazine. The new issue, “Christ in a Post-Christian Culture” features articles by Michael Horton, David F. Wells, Jack Schultz, and other stimulating articles.

New Covenant PCA has added sermon download capabilities to its newly redesigned site.

I really didn’t want to give it the time of day, but The Shack has crashed our world, and Elizabeth is starting a series of posts critiquing it. Reviews abound everywhere (including this good one by Tim Challies), but the bottom line is that if you read it, please read it with discernment, care, and an eye on Scripture. For what it’s worth, I think one of the reasons it is taking evangelicalism by storm is because of the aforementioned lack of biblical literacy.

  1. That’s blog speak for “hat tip,” which means that’s where I was informed of the link. It’s apparently blog etiquette to not just poach links to articles, but to drive traffic to the referring site. So if there’s something I found on another blog (like Greg’s), I link to it, but if it’s something I found on my own, there is no “ht.”
