Kevin Vanhoozer speaks about Pastor Theologians and why we need them in a series of videos for The Center for Pastor Theologians, and as a promotional for an upcoming conference and his soon-to-be-released book The Pastor As Public Theologian, Reclaiming a Lost Vision
Here’s a wonderful video that was produced by Desiring God, which seems to be a preview for a new book by John Piper to be released in 2016. Website is here.
This years TGC National Conference “Coming Home” is now available online. The usual suspects gathered in Orlando in April to talk about Heaven. Don Carson, Tim Keller, John Piper, Phil Ryken, Ligon Duncan, Mark Dever, Voddie Baucham, and a new face, a pastor from Brazil, Augustus Nicodemus Lopes, gave the plenary addresses.
From the website:
The conference titled Coming Home: New Heaven and New Earth sought to stir longing for our ultimate home in heaven as we explored the sweep of redemption from creation to consummation, from Genesis to Revelation. Through times of worship, prayer, fellowship and instruction, we sought to reaffirm the Bible’s teaching on eschatology and declare in word and song with joyful hope that Jesus is returning soon. Along with the nine main plenary sessions we had more than 50 workshops and focus gatherings led by speakers addressing topics including evangelism, homosexuality, student ministry, sexual abuse, faith and work, and more.
Don’t miss Al Mohler’s workshop address “Aftermath”, or G. K. Beale & Ligon Duncan’s workshop “The Gospel and Eschatology.”
ChristianAudio’s free offering for the month of June is John MacArthur’s excellent book Being a Dad Who Leads. This is a book I return to frequently as a father, and this audio version is a welcome addition. If you’re a dad, no matter what age your children, this is a very helpful book.
