Around the Blog in 80 Seconds

Our brother Tim Challies is thinking about the regulative principle of worship. Here's an idea that needs recovery and wider use. For those interested in a longer treatment, Lig Duncan's 1st two chapters in Give Praise to God ("Does God Care How We Worship?" and "Foundations for Biblically Directed Worship") are probably the best treatments I've read on the subject. Also useful was D.G. Hart and John R. Muether's With Reverence and Awe: Returning to the Basics of Reformed Worship.

If you haven't seen it already, the new edition of 9News is available. It's an excellent issue focuing on biblical theology.

The brothers over at Pulpit Live are offering their thoughts on the emerging/emergent church movement, most of which is taken from an upcoming book from John MacArthur.
