What's out there

A few articles and resources that I have found helpful and interesting.

First of all, if you haven't heard of Tim Keller, you should have! I have been very impressed with his teaching and the way in which he is able to relate classic Christian belief to the issues and outlooks of our day. There are lots of video clips and mp3s available as free downloads. The following link to the Reformissionary blog has a page of Keller resources:

Keller has also written a book called The Reason For God. I am currently reading it and finding it very helpful. It has just been published in the UK.

Check out they do free postage on books of any value anywhere in the world.

If you want to keep in touch with the Charismatic / Pentecostal world you could do worse than start with J. Lee Grady's weekly piece at

There are also some good current affairs articles online. The major national newspaper websites are always worth a look. One online journal I visit occasionally is Prospect. There is a fascinating article that can be viewed online about character and how politicians on the right and the left are beginning to see character development as fundamental to dealing with social problems.

I loved the J.F. Roxburgh quote about his objective as a headmaster being to turn out young men who were "acceptable at a dance and invaluable in a shipwreck". What a very British definition of character!

Have a look and let me know what you think.
