Below are some of the articles and books I’ve read recently that you may enjoy checking out.
- “In Memoriam: Dr. Michael Travers, The Faithful Professor,” (Matt Mullins, BTT) — This is a wonderful tribute to a wonderful Christian man, a beloved colleague, and a good friend. Michael Travers will be missed.
- “Q&A with Trevin Wax, Publisher of the Newly Revised Christian Standard Bible (CSB),” (Ed Stetzer, CT) — This revision of the HCSB is very welcome and very well done. I’m an advocate of familiarizing yourself with several good translations of the Bible, and this one is well worth your consideration.
- “‘The Shack’ & the missing art of evangelical discernment,” (Albert Mohler, BP) — This article first appeared 7 years ago, but with the current release of the movie version of The Shack, I think it is still relevant.
- “Islam will be largest religion in the world by 2070, says report,” (Olivia Rudgard, The Telegraph) — “Islam is the only religion growing faster than the world’s population, and it will be the largest in the world by 2070, research has found.”
- “Married lesbian Baptist co-pastors say all are ‘beloved,’” (Adelle M. Banks, RNS) — “Swearingen and Sarratt were ordained in 2015 and married three times — privately, publicly on a North Carolina farm where a rainbow appeared and, most recently, legally at Furman’s chapel in 2014. They say they are ready to minister to everyone, from the urban community around Calvary to the LGBT people who enter their doors.”
- “ISIS’ Sex Slavery, Crucifixions of Christians Are ‘Historical Atrocities’ but UN Remains Silent: ACLJ,” (Stoyan Zaimov, CP) — “The ACLJ said Thursday that it has sent a letter to Nikki Haley, the permanent representative of the United States to the U.N., urging the U.S. government to press its international allies in taking action against the genocide.”
