In an effort to be more hobbit-like, I've decided to give a few presents to you, the reader, for my birthday. However, if you would like to give me a present or two, I would like Shedd's 'Dogmatic Theology', Calvin's 'Old Testament Commentaries', and 'The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit' (the books, not the actual pulpit, I think Dr. Masters still needs it).
But enough about me, here's my gift to you.
Steve Camp, of Camponthis, is stirring up trouble by examining C. S. Lewis' theology.
Frank Turk, the Centuri0n, is making waves in the baptismal pool. This is a great discussion. Just be sure you know what you're getting yourself into if you comment. You may end up with a good old fashioned clowning.
Matt Gumm, at Still Reforming, promises to comment on some things I wrote about Calvinism. He also promises a review of the Chronicles Of Narnia. Check him out through the week.
Jason and Scott at Fide-O are drawing lines in the sand on the spiritual gifts. Personally, I'm not very impressed with Jason's offering here. But it's still a good read of typical cessationist arguments in my opinion.
Tim at Challies.com offers a better cessationist argument here and here and promises fair treatment for continuationists with an interview with Wayne Grudem.
John, The Earnest Contender, continues his series of Baptist distinctives.
Steve, of Pastor Steve Weaver fame, listed links to audio of his sermon series through Romans chapter 8. I might be biased, but I think Steve is the second greatest preacher in the world! He has also listed links to his manuscripts of the same series.
Chad Bresson (a.k.a. Breuss Wane), of The Vossed World, was ordained as an Elder at Clearcreek Chapel in Ohio. He posted a great quote from an ordination sermon by John Owen.
Brad Williams, the Sojourner, wants to know if any of you guys are going to the Together For The Gospel Conference. I was planning on going, but other circumstances have arisen that will require my vacation time in February. :-(
OK. I've boosted enough blogger's rankings in the TTLB for now. Be sure to check out all of these sites, as I think that you will be encouraged, challenged, edified, and rebuked by these guys.
