Reading Deeply

Haven't had one of these in a while. I haven't been reading much of blogs lately, so some of these are a little older/repetitious. I'm in the middle of finals, so working and working =)

Steve Hays does an excellent job discussing what God's glory means and what it looks like.

He also addresses the common WWJD fad.

Paul Helm has an imagined conversation with Paul the Apostle and discusses Christmas. Excellent read.

Dan Phillips sounds the trumpet call for a life lived out for the glory of God. Convicting.

centurion just finished up a series on Christmas. Very insightful and convicting. A good reminded of what it means that "to us a child is born." Read them all.

Douglas Wilson takes a good hard look at the Pharisees.

Tim Challies has an excellent post dealing with our sinful nature, how sometimes we can acknowledge that we sin, but not that we are sinners. Insightful. He also references the Marsden biography of Jonathan Edwards. If you have the time, I would highly encourage you to read it.

In books, Total Truth is chugging along. Very insightful, though does repeat a lot of How Now Shall We Live. I've also started John Macarthur's Truth Matters, which is a "best of John Macarthur" type book. Takes some of the best chapters of other books he's written and bound them all together. Very good stuff.

Yay comments work again =)! I only glanced through a few on your list, but good stuff. I especially like the, "throw away the bracelet and go read the Bible," or something to that effect.

Er... good providence on your finals...? Best wishes on your finals...? It just doesn't sound right to me =P. Since you know what I mean, I'll just say good luck on your finals. *looks up at the sky*
