Reading Deeply

I haven't done one of these in a while. Here are some things that I've found interesting.

This blog (HT:Leo) quotes and links to a video of Penn (of Penn and Teller), who is an atheist and says that he doesn't respect people who don't proselytize -

"I don't respect people who don't proselytize. If you believe that there's a heaven and hell, and people could be going to hell, and you think, 'Well, it's not really worth telling them this because it would make it socially awkward'... How much do you have to hate somebody not to proselytize?"”

Forgiveness is a difficult thing. Here's a story on Governor Ryan (from Illinois) and an appeal for forgiveness and one Christian couple's response. I think it's spot on.

Tim Challies reposted an old post on a neighbor who was a public nuisance and his rebuke (at the hands of his son) of how he should love her anyway.

I've also stumbled across Jay Adams' blog, which he just started. I find him clear, and well-written, though probably a little unpopular because of the stands he takes. Here's a great post on a minster's salary.

Tim Keller explains the Gospel in light of all the claims that it's too complicated, or there isn't one specific Gospel. Long post, but worth reading.

Jollyblogger gives some good advice for young theologians. Great, now I have to buy a filing cabinet or something =D

And here's a new blog that I've stumbled upon and have been enjoying - What's Best Next is a blog by a guy at Desiring God on productivity and effectiveness. Usually good posts, though it's daunting to try to put everything in practice.
