Other Stuff Sunday

‘Tis time once again to share my favorite other things I have been reading this week. So go read them and leave some nice comments. Trust me, it makes a blogger’s day!

————

First Things First: please watch this video of N.T. Wright talking about how we ought to read the Bible. Genesis and Exodus as one story? Never thought of that!

I’ve been reading a book called “Faith Without Illusions” by Andy Byers. It is a good hard look at Christian cynicism. I’m finding myself on every page of that book. He wrote an article about it on Relevant Magazine.

Matt Cannon takes us on a tour of Christian-themed restaurants.

Kurt Willems: You might be an Evangelical Reject if . . .

Rachel Held Evans and the trouble with Litmus Tests.

And by fellow BlogRocket friend, Tor, has some excellent insight into bathroom etiquette.

On The Blog

I started Exodus this week! It was very exciting to begin my second book in this crazy project. So if you missed it, check out Exodus 1, 2, 3, 4, and 4 part II!

I also did a guest post for Sharideth Smith on dating advice from Genesis.

What’s Next?

I’m going to change things up a little bit for the next two weeks. I will be in Portland, OR on an inner city project with some college students I work with. This will mean I will be pretty limited in what I can do here.

So I lined up several guest posts from some new friends in the BlogRocket community.

I’ll be posting them on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for the next two weeks. So make sure you come check them out and then go read the blogs of the authors.

  1. You are going to have to just send me the entire list of blogs you read. I am fascinated by all these posts. When we get down to it everyone has more in common than differences. If you picture Christ as the size of the Sun, then all the things we make so much disagreement about is about the size of a golf ball in comparison. If Christ is the center of your universe, then there is a massive amount of agreement and we can just ignore that golf ball of differences.

    • I just stumble on to them. I love being curious about what other people are reading. But Rachel’s blog is about as good as it gets in my opinion. She has very thoughtful responses and questions. But yes, I am more and more coming to think that we are really complicating something that is, in reality, quite simple.
