WHAT SHOULD YOU FIND AT A BIBLE COLLEGE?

298822_6140Al Mohler:

“Here at a theological seminary we find hermeneutics, exegesis, biblical theology, systematics, historical theology, homiletics, and missiology.

We find books and brains,

a library and a faculty,

mentors who mould the future,

and dedicated Christian scholars who serve the church.

This is deadly serious business, and they know it.

What shows up in the classroom shows up in the pulpit, and fast.”

A REALITY CHECK

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAdrian Reynolds:

“Many young men going into ministry have attended a relatively well funded University church. They have perhaps done an apprenticeship in a similar church.

But those kinds of churches (for which we should all thank God) are not normal.

The majority of churches in this country are relatively small, underfunded and (in the world’s eyes at least) struggling. They cannot hope to put on programmes and events like larger churches do.

And yet here’s the encouragement. God saves unbelievers and builds Christians through the faithful preaching of the word.”

10 OF THOSE TUESDAY

ASEEvery Tuesday I want to highlight on this blog a great resource that is available from 10ofthose.com and some great deals for you to check out.

This week’s resource is a revised and updated version of a book I’ve just read that highlights a massive need for the church today: And Some Evangelists by Roger Carswell.

The church I’m part is looking to appoint a church based evangelist next year, and this book has been so helpful as we plan for this.

And Some Evangelists is available to buy HERE.

And while you’re visiting 10ofthose.com you might like to check out the latest offers on a number of resources including some to giveaway this Christmas.

Reply to it: “If you can reply to it in no more than ten or fifteen seconds and with little mental exertion, do that right away.”

Move it to your Reply folder: “If you cannot reply to it in just a few seconds or if it will require some thought, move it to your reply folder.”

Do this for every email.
