Brothers We Are Still Not Professionals: 2013 Desiring God Pastors Conference

The 26th Desiring God Pastor’s Conference took up the theme of the supernatural in pastoral ministry. Speakers included Mark Dever, Kent Hughes, Darrin Patrick, Tope Koleoso and some newer faces including Jason Meyer who is taking over the pastoral position that John Piper is leaving.

John Piper’s biographical sketch looks at a man who you probably have never heard of, George Herbert, an Anglican priest of a small country parish. What Piper focuses on in the life and ministry of George Herbert is his poetry and use of words to glorify God.

Fools Rush in Where Monkeys Fear to Tread

Christ the Center invited Carl Trueman to discuss his latest book called ‘Fools Rush in Where Monkeys Fear to Tread.’ The book is his latest collection of  Trueman’s excellent essays. Trueman talks about Christian celebritism, authenticity, freedom and authority in the church.  I highly recommend Carl’s book which is a pleasure to read.

MacArthur Q&A on the Church

John MacArthur has recently given two Q&A’s where the questions centered on the church.  The first Q&A deals mostly with John’s history of Grace Community Church, what he faced when he first came and how he approached ministry and how it became the church it is today.

The second Q&A covers John’s theology of the church.  What is the church? What is worship? Why is the church centered around the preaching of the Word of God? What is John’s approach to application? How does John prepare for Sunday?
