The Gospel Coalition has added some material to its website, and has published the December issue of its Themelios journal. There are some good articles in there, ranging from ministering to the poor to the life of the Christian academic. If you haven’t checked this site out, it’s worth spending some of your Christmas vacation exploring the resources on the site. As mentioned in an earlier post, the Gospel Coalition is holding a conference, April 21-23, in Chicago. Spring is just around the corner, so pencil it in.

The following video is NOT part of the new material (some of the new stuff can’t be embedded here), but it is an interesting conversation given the outreach ideas proposed by various members of NHF. This is only part 1 of 6, so check out the rest on YouTube. Enjoy!
