It has been awhile since I have been blogging–typical reasons, papers, exams, lectures, committee work, etc.  However, I thought I would throw out three resources for people to consider.

(1) Review & Expositor.  One of the best resources in Baptist life.  It is the publication of a consortium of eight Baptist institutions (of which one is Central Baptist Seminary).  The latest issue (Summer 2012) has been out for awhile.  It contains some great authors writing on prophetic preaching–an appropriate topic considering the context of the political season.

Michael A. Smith, “Through Much Tribulation:  Prophetic Preaching in an Age of Hopelessness”

Debra J. Mumford, ‘Prosperity Gospel and African American Prophet Preaching”

Donna E. Allen, “Womanists as Prophetic Preachers”

Mike Graves, “WWLD?  The Writer of Luke-Acts as a Paradigm for Pastoral Prophetic Preaching”

Sangyil Park, “Speaking of Hope:  Prophetic Preaching”

Allison J. Tanner, “Unpacking Prophetic Preaching:  The Pastor as Cultured Actor”

(2) Christian History Magazine.

This magazine (it has pictures) often has excellent articles on a variety of topics related to Christian history.  The back issues are available online in PDFs.

(3) Christian Audio

Once a month they provide a free audiobook.  For the month of October, appropriately enough, it is “Martin Luther:  In His Own Words.”  

I have downloaded several audiobooks in the past:  Augustine’s Confessions, Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov, and John Bunyan, Pilgrim’s Progress.
