Daily linkathon 10/3
Over at FTA, I’m continuing my discussion on Jack Hayford and S. David Moore’s history of the charismatic movement titled The Charismatic Century; this week, we talk about the early life and ministry of William Branham (he was an influence of Todd Bentley).
Michael Newnham defends John Piper, who’s been harshly criticized by some discernment bloggers for his support of one Mark Driscoll.
Tom Ascol gives a good retrospective of Christian blogging (while arguing that blogging hit its peak a year ago).
Peter-John Courson on what drives him.
Take an inside look at internet church campuses with Leadership Network.
Gary Lamb takes a look back at a multi-site church conference he attended, in which he makes this statement: “Multi-site is NOT the future of the church.”
Tim Stevens makes a good case that conducting a baptism over the internet can be done.
Digital Sanctuary on a phishing scam aimed at Facebook users.
Jared Wilson argues sometimes, you have to be the first to do something in ministry.
Scot McKnight on why he is evangelical, not Catholic nor Eastern Orthodox. Michael Patton comments.
R.C. Sproul’s series on prayer at Ligonier’s website continues, with part 4.
Scott Thomas of the Acts29 Network has 20 questions to help you figure out if you are a church planter.
For those of you who’ve always wondered about such things, Ed Stetzer lists who’s who in megachurch research.
Finally, a blog note: you’ll see to the right-hand side of the screen web buttons for Monergism and icons for books I’m currently reading or plan to read ASAP (they are, in order, Death by Love by Mark Driscoll and Gerry Breshears; Crazy Love by Francis Chan; Approaching God by Steve Brown; and Spectacular Sins by John Piper). The list will change periodically.
Clicking on the icons takes you to Amazon.com. If you order those books through this site, I get a small kickback – 4 percent of the profits goes toward store credit for me. The Monergism link works the same way – if someone clicks on the link through this site and orders something, it works the same way as the Amazon deal does.
In short, I’m not getting rich off this deal, and I’m hoping for enough return from this to get me a free book or two 🙂
If you choose to order through this site, wherever you can get a better deal on a book, take advantage of it!
Michael has a similar set up at Phoenix Preacher – so, when you visit his site, if you’re in the mood to buy something from Amazon or Monergism, get to either site through the links at HIS blog, and support him in the process.
