Behold Your God: Rethinking God Biblically was a conference held in Nashville in 2013 that featured some speakers who I am very familiar with, such as Paul Washer and Conrad Mbewe, and some men who are new to me.
John Snyder is the author and central figure behind the Behold Your God DVD Bible Study which travels across the world to talk about the lives and ministries of well know figures from church history, and reflects biblically on the lessons we can learn from them as they highlight certain truths in their lives, either positively or negatively.
The men speaking at this conference include John Snyder, R. O. Roberts, Anthony Mathneia,, Andrew Davies, Jordan Thomas, Paul Washer and Conrad Mbewe.

Liam Goligher tackles key passages in Ezekiel to give a nice overview of this prophet’s writing in 7 sermons given at Tenth Presbyterian Church of Philadelphia in 2012.
Series on Ezekiel >>>
It’s not often you will find a preacher who will systematically preach through one of the major prophets like the 66 chapters of Isaiah. But Liam Goligher did just that with his congregation at Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia.
Isaiah is often called the fifth Gospel and, like Romans of the New Testament, it is considered to be the gem of the Old Testament. Yet it remains a book shrouded in obscurity simply because we don’t take the time and make the effort to understand it. Give Dr. Goligher 31 sermons and he will walk you through this book, and the riches you discover will be worth the effort.

Now available for free viewing online is Ligonier’s Fall Conference featuring R. C. Sproul, of course, along with Greg Beale, Derek Thomas, Steve Nichols, L. Michael Morales and R. C. Jr.
More than one pulpit has had the phrase, “Sir, we would see Jesus” posted where the preacher can see it as he proclaims the Word of God. It is a good reminder. One thing we learn from church history is that preachers must always fight the temptation to preach their opinions, current events, popular culture- anything but Christ and Him crucified. Today we are facing a dire need for the church to recapture the centrality of Christ in its preaching and life. From many pulpits people hear messages that do not emphasize the gospel, or they hear no gospel preached. This weakens the church’s witness, does not provide spiritual food to those who are hungering and thirsting after righteousness, and it turns us into a people who wander about like sheep without a shepherd.
You can listen or watch it online for free, or purchase the entire conference for $12.80. Not a bad price for a good conference.

This past March Southern Baptist Theological Seminary held it’s youth conference called Renown. The title for this years conference was “The Rise of Wisdom” and featured speakers Al Mohler, Dan Dewitt and Sean McDowell.
From the website:
God’s renown is more than His desire to be highly honored. His renown requires that He be rightly and supremely honored for who He is and all He has done. God has revealed himself to be more valuable than anything and everything else in all of creation; and that is precisely why apologetics matter.
Apologetics is the art of defending the Christian faith. We make much of God through biblically-saturated apologetics because through this we express truth and expose error. This art properly crafted is a life vest and a soul anchor for those ‘tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes’ (Eph. 4:14). So, in a world where folly is exalted and wisdom is despised, Christians have an opportunity to stand firm and shine the light of truth in dark dens of lies and error. As C.S. Lewis once wrote, “I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen, not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.” Apologetics has at its core a desire to make God famous because God is the source of all truth and He is infinitely worthy to be praised!
Join us, March 14-15, 2014, at the Renown Conference as we seek to equip this generation’s middle and high school aged students with the arsenal of God’s word as they battle against the cosmic powers of this present darkness.
The audio and video for the sessions can be found on the media page at SBTS.

Speaking at this years conference are Voddie Baucham, Sinclair Ferguson, Robert Godfrey, Steven Lawson, Albert Mohler, Stephen Nichols, R.C. Sproul Jr., R.C. Sproul, and Derek Thomas. These men consider some very difficult question as it relates to our contemporary culture. How are we to confront this present world? How do we live faithfully as godly remnant in such a world? How should we defend the faith? How do we stand up for and champion biblical ethics in a society that is hostile to our ethics?
From the website:
As has been true in every generation, the church today faces many challenges from the world. The intellectual and moral opposition that we face can seem overwhelming at times, which is why we need to remember that Christ has already overcome this opposition. By His life, death, and resurrection, our Savior has conquered our enemies, and by His Spirit He has granted us to share in the victory. The Lord, in His Spirit, comes alongside us to strengthen us for the battles we face. This strengthening occurs as we are grounded in His truth (John 17:17).
Ligonier is offering this years conference free for online viewing, it is also available for purchase.
