Last week’s poll netted another seven votes, with the ESV coming out as the translation of choice for Ophelimos readers. The ESV is what I currently use for Bible study (obviously), devotional reading, and preaching.
Here’s another poll while I figure out more meaningful content to put here every Friday:
On to the Links…
- This week was a good week, partly because Joshua Skogerboe updated his blog twice. He is quickly becoming one of my favorite writers, and both of this week’s posts were spectacular. The first post takes a look at Jesus Christ coming to us and taking away our need to earn God’s approval. Also, AWANA and the physical torture of games before a Bible study. The second post was an appropriate blend of Neil Diamond, tofurkey, drumming, and Christian freedom.
- Tim Keller, writing at The Gospel Coalition wrote an excellent post about polemics and ministry. Great line – “Polemics is medicine, not food.”
- Finally, Gene Veith, another one of my favorite authors, contrasted preaching assurance against preaching doubt.
