Here’s a short video on the history of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary:
Patrick Schreiner is probably right: everyone looks at the same blogs. Still, I have noticed that I reach a "tipping point" in deciding whether to read something after several of the blogs I look at post on the same thing.

Curious about what’s happening in the Southern Baptist Convention, especially with the Great Commission Resurgence? I’m thinking especially of those of you who might be coming to SBTS from non-SBC backgrounds–and that includes those of you thinking about coming to SBTS but your hesitations about the SBC are in the way. You really should read Trevin […]
There are loads of Roman Catholics here in Louisville. Our neighbors on both sides of us are Roman Catholic, so I’m thrilled to see the publication of Chris Castaldo’s Holy Ground: Walking with Jesus as a Former Roman Catholic. I would commend this book to anyone interested in seeing the gospel believed by Roman Catholics. […]
Good article here. No substitute for loving people this way. Earlier post here.
Tomorrow is the the 500th anniversary of the birth of John Calvin, I suggest you give yourself a present for Calvin’s birthday: Robert W. Godfrey’s John Calvin: Pilgrim and Pastor.

This year’s Crossway Lecture at ETS was presented by G. K. Beale. Beale argued that Inerrancy is not a scholastic theological deduction made by interpreters of the Bible, but rather that it is an exegetical observation of a theological deduction that at least one biblical author has already made within the text of the Bible itself.

Here’s a great deal from Covenant Life Church. Tell 5 friends and get some great hymns done well, done traditionally, for free! Enjoy!
Courageous. Inspiring. Prophetic. On point. Go listen here. Dr. Moore knocked it out of the park today for the glory of God. The abortion thing is about much more than American politics, so if you don’t want to be confronted with the spiritual realities and worldview issues at stake, don’t bother with this sermon. If […]
I’m eager to listen to Michael Haykin’s testimony (HT: Historia Ecclesiastica). I trust it will bless your soul, too.

David Reimer is one of three filling in for Justin Taylor this week, and I have found him to be an invariably stimulating person.

Lord willing, our family will travel from Houston to Louisville at the end of next week, departing Houston on August 1. We are headed to what some have called “Camelot,” which I think captures the spirit of the place (even if I don’t agree with what those who called it that meant–they were partial to […]

Anyone concerned with the state of evangelical believers in this culture should read Dr. Moore’s thoughts in “Southern Baptists, the Family, and the Rule of the Appetites.” On your way there, check out these two pictures of a statue of a lion conquering a snake.

Ken Keathley has one of the best introductory paragraphs to a post I’ve seen: A while back I had the privilege of preaching at 1st Baptist Church of Kearney, Missouri, which so happens to have been the home church of Jesse James. Jesse was a member in good standing when he led the first daylight […]
