In Case You Missed It

1) Over at The Gospel Coalition, Justin Taylor has been running an excellent series on “A Novel Every Christian Should Consider Reading.” Most recently, Russ Moore weighed in with his recommendation.

2) D. A. Horton, Executive Director of ReachLife Ministries and National Coordinator for Urban Student Missions at NAMB, writes about using what you have for mission. Posted at the SEND Network blog. 

3) How does the gospel relate to the culture? Over at the Gospel Project blog, SEBTS Provost Bruce Ashford describes the best kept secret in the Christian life.

4 and 5) Two significant events recently took place at SEBTS, hosted by the Center for Faith and Culture. First, the CFC hosted the “Day of Prophecy” conference, which featured Craig Blaising, Ed Hindson, Michael Rydelnik and William Watson. Topics discussed included the rapture and Day of the Lord.  Watch here.

Second, the annual Bush-Drummond Lectureship took up the topic, “Christian Reflections on the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act.” The lectures were brought by Dr. Gerald Smith and included a casual conversation at SEBTS chapel on the key issues.

George Robinson, Southeastern Seminary, and the Gospel Project

Well, you wouldn’t know it from listening to some folks, but the Gospel Project is a powerfully good Bible study curriculum for local churches. The best I’ve seen, as a matter of fact. The Gospel Project is edited by my friends Ed Stetzer and Trevin Wax, and, as the project’s website states, it “takes the story of Jesus — the gospel — the entire Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, and points to the one story that infuses Scripture from cover to cover — God’s redemptive plan to rescue us from sin and death. Because the entire Bible points to Jesus, it is important to examine the theology and mission within the text, as all of it is an important part of understanding the awesome depth and power of the gospel.”

We are pleased to note that several members of the Southeastern family are connected with this good project. One of those is George Robinson, Headrick Chair of World Mission and Assistant Professor of Missions and Evangelism. Dr. Robinson wrote  “Our Fallen Response to God’s Word” (lessons 4–6) for the Fall 2102 Unit, “The God Who Speaks.” This curriculum promises to be biblically sound and edifying for the churches using this material.
