I’ve come across some excellent resources in recent days…
Ajith Fernando wrote a work entitled An Authentic Servant: The Marks of a Spiritual Leader for the Lausanne Movement. It is available as a free PDF and well worth your time (especially if you are some kind of spiritual leader).
Mark Dever’s latest 9 Marks Interview is with Kevin DeYoung. The interview begins with Dever pressing DeYoung on his beliefs on infant baptism. I thought Dever was charitable and asked some good clarifications. As a credo-baptist I thought his handling of this issue helped clarify some of the distinctions we have with paedo-baptists. I appreciate Kevin DeYoung so much. This charitable dialogue helped show the unity of the Gospel.
Finally, I just read Arturo Azurdia’s latest book, Connected Christianity, calling us to be “worldly Christians.” One thing that was especially helpful was a discussion on what he called cultural gluttony vs. cultural anorexia. You would be profited by these things and I may have a quote or two from this in a later post.
