The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name
Over at Westminster Bookstore there is a great sale going on. Among the many good books comes my favorite storybook bible for children The Jesus Storybook Bible. As hard as it is to get kids attention sometimes, my preschoolers love the way the stories are written. At rest time, they love to look at the colorful pictures and ask why I haven't read this story or that. If you have been wanting to buy this book or are looking for a quality children's storybook bible, then head over here to get it at 45% off. Remember, it's this week only. I'm going to be giving mine away at the end of the summer (to one of my kids, that especially loves it) , so I was happy to find such a deal. They also just made a larger "Read-Aloud Edition" which will be good for the classroom!

Here's what Tim Keller says about the book:

“I would urge not just families with young children to get this book, but every Christian--from pew warmers, to ministry leaders, seminarians and even theologians! Sally Lloyd-Jones has captured the heart of what it means to find Christ in all the scriptures, and has made clear even to little children that all God's revelation has been about Jesus from the beginning--a truth not all that commonly recognized even among the very learned." 

 Rev. Tim Keller, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York

A Response to the Warren interview & Egalitarian Wives

I'm officially changing wednesdays to "Good Read Wednesdays." (That is- until I come up with an improved and more catchy name, any ideas?) So here are some that I found particularly interesting this past week.

Piper Interviews Rick Warren: If you were one of the people that got all excited (in a "what-the-heck-type-of-way) when Rick Warren was invited as a main speaker to Piper's pastor's conference then this should interest you. Also, here is a response by Tim Challies on the interview itself.

I'm a complimentarian man with an egalitarian wife; Can I pastor? Russell Moore will address ethical issues from time to to time. This time he was asked if a complimentarian man could be a pastor even though his wife is egalitarian. His advice? Well, if he (the husband) is called to lay down his life for his wife-he could also lay down his calling...at least for awhile to study scripture with his wife ;) Check it out.

Recovering from Child Abuse: Help and Healing for Victims I love CCEF, their counseling issues never exclude Christ and the Word. They are solid. In this article David Powlison encourages victims that 1) Identity is bigger than abuse 2) Story is bigger than abuse and that Jesus redeems both of those things. Praise God for Christ centered counseling!
