It's been a while since I've been "around the blog". There's been a lot of great stuff out there, edifying stuff. Seems there have been a number of really good quotes posted. Thought I'd list links to a few.
Pyromaniacs quote Spurgeon on preaching with candor and personal application. See here.
Lig' Duncan gets personal with Calvinists regarding controversies, courtesy of John Newton. See here.
Lig's homie with the accent, Derek Thomas, sets the bar high with a quote from Bishop Howe on ideal gospel ministers. I plugged this once but thought it was challenging enough to link again. Here.
Colin quotes Keller on learning to preach well through practice. See here. Someone said to me it takes about 400-500 sermons before you've worked out who you really are in the pulpit. I know I'm still working on it.
JT quotes Mollie Hemmingway of the WSJ on a new study from Baylor University called "What Americans Really Believe." The New Atheism leads to a new superstition. Good quote here.
What? Theology solves practical problems?! Indeed. JT via Lig via Donald Macleod in The Humiliated and Exalted Lord provides the quote. See here.
And if you've not had enough quotes, spend a season at Of First Importance. Too many good ones to choose from.
Crisis in American Democracy - When the essential institutions of society are no longer respected, government demands that respect for itself. That is a recipe for tyranny.
