Today, I just have one book I’d like to share with you that’s on sale for the Kindle—Church History in Plain Language (4th edition) by Bruce Shelley ($2.99). This is one of my favorite primers on church history. I suspect it will become yours as well.
Fellas, calling your wife hot to other people is awkward. We can’t agree with you. That would be really weird. We can’t disagree with you. That would be really mean. Ignoring you is rude, but it’s probably our best option in this case. Do you really want us trying to determine if your wife is, in fact, hot? I’m glad you think she’s a 10. You should. But calling attention to her hotness doesn’t honor her as much as it creates an opportunity for others to judge. And that’s just awkward.
What do kids think adults do at work?

This was an excellent read. On a related now, this article on the difficult question many American evangelicals are facing in light of Donald Trump being the last candidate standing is also worth your time.
Jared Wilson shares five implications of the ascension of Jesus.
Now in God’s wisdom he is letting human technological advancement move at a dizzying pace, in spite of the language, culture, geographical, political, and economic obstacles. Why?

With thousands of years of retrospect, we know more than ever that the wisest thing we can do is to trust God’s promises and purposes far more than our shortsighted perceptions.
Every church has someone who is in charge of the children’s ministry, regardless of where they are on the org chart or payroll. They are not in it for the money or the glory. They obviously love Jesus and our kids – so I’m going to love them back today through this letter, which I hope you will make sure they get.
Carl Trueman writes something that deserves consideration:
Let’s face it: We now live in a world where refusing a man the right to expose himself in a woman’s toilet is enough to risk your city losing the right to host a football game. Even to suggest there might be a debate to be had about such a thing is enough to render one liable to accusations of irrational hatred and dismissal as a benighted bigot. Culture did not bring that about. Anti-culture did—the wholesale repudiation of the past and its institutions and interdicts, and a Devil-may-care attitude to the future.
This interview with Jessalyn Hutto is well worth reading. Her book, Inheritance of Tears, is also one I would recommend.
