Friend of Grace Five Trends in the Church Today – D A Carson by Acts 29 Network. “Don spoke at a luncheon at Bethlehem Baptist Church (John Piper) on Friday September 26, 2008 just before the Desiring God Conference.

Friend of Grace What They Said About Fan and Fred, WSJ Opinion. “A compilation of statements by Democrats and Republicans on Fannie and Freddie.”

Friend of Grace All Worship Is Covenant Renewal by Kevin D. Johnson, Prophezei. “I have argued that any and all sanctification–and especially the public gathering of God’s people with or without a celebration of the Supper is still and always has been covenant renewal.”

Friend of Grace Piggy Pols in Hog Heaven With Pork-Packed Pact by Daphine Retter, NY Post. “Here, little piggies! Congressional deal-brookers yesterday slopped a mess of pork into the $700 billion financial rescue bill passed by the Senate last night – including a tax break for makers of kids’ wooden arrows – in a bid to lure reluctant lawmakers into voting for the package.”

Friend of Grace His Own Pointy Hat by Melvin Jones, Pulpit Pimps. “I’ve told you this before. In fact, I have said it so many times my wife says she has heard me mumbling it in my sleep during the night. These pimps don’t care about you. They are only interested in their personal gain and glory.”

Friend of Grace Barack Obama is My Alpha and Omega by Brian Faughnan, Red State. “Fausta has uncovered the latest Obama cult video — this one reportedly put together with the help of your tax dollars by the Urban Community Leadership Academy, a charter school in Kansas City.”

Friend of Grace Vatican official calls Democrats “the party of death” by Ed Morrissey, Hot Air. “The new prefect of the Vatican Supreme Court, the former Archbishop Raymond Burke of St. Louis, warned in an interview with an Italian newspaper that the Democratic Party is well on its way to becoming the “party of death” in the United States.”

Friend of Grace Of Man’s Chief End and Happiness by Thomas Boston, Reformed Perspectives Magazine. “Born into relative obscurity in 1676 in Duns, Berwickshire, Thomas Boston died in 1732 in the small parish of Ettrick in the Scottish Borders. But his 56 years of life, 45 of them spent in conscious Christian discipleship, lend credibility to the spiritual principle that it is not where a Christian serves, but what quality of service he renders, that really counts.”

Friend of Grace Herman Bavinck: His Life and Theology by Cornelis P. Venema, New Horizons. “Earlier this year, the fourth and final volume of Herman Bavinck’s great Reformed Dogmatics was published in English.[1] At last, this model of Reformed theological scholarship is available in English to students of Reformed theology. This year also marks the one hundredth anniversary of Bavinck’s Stone Lectures at Princeton Theological Seminary. The time is ripe, therefore, to get (re)acquainted with Bavinck.” [HT – Alpha & Omega]
