Below are some of the articles and books I’ve read recently that you may enjoy perusing.
- “Should Women Wear Head Coverings?” by Ben Merkle — SEBTS professor Ben Merkle addresses one of the more difficult passages in the New Testament with a wise and careful reason for why women today do not need to wear head coverings.
- “Cotton Mather’s Advice for Seminary Students,” by Ryan Hoselton — This article briefly outlines the American Puritan’s advice to aspiring pastors, much of which is still relevant to those who are doing the same today.
- “9 Things You Should Know About Margaret Sanger,” by Joe Carter — Margaret Sanger was the founder of the organization now called Planned Parenthood, and Carter provides a list of some background information on Sanger and what motivated her work.
- “Review of Rosaria Butterfield’s Openness Unhindered: Further Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert on Sexual Identity and Union with Christ,” by Kelsey Hency — This reviewer concludes, “In Openness Unhindered, Butterfield sets out to equip and encourage those dealing with sexual temptation, guide unbelievers to Christ’s hand, and rouse believers blind to their own sin. If you come to the book seeking answers about one of today’s most controversial topics, you will certainly find some. But you’ll leave with more than answers. You’ll leave with the hope of the gospel.”
- “Vatican Backs Plan to Name Rome Square for Martin Luther,” by Rosie Scammell — This is an interesting development, given that Italy is almost 98% Catholic, but it does reflect the broader ecumenical dialogues that have been happening over the past several decades.
