Penguins just got more amazing

Book of the Week

I'm reading a leadership book this week. I started it today, and I don't think it's going to be that great...but it's probably wise for me to read and think through leadership as I believe God has called me to be a pastor. Anyway, the name of the book is "Ministers as Leaders" by Robert D. Dale.
I found it in my personal library, but I have no idea where it came from, and I've never read it before, so I figured I'd give it a shot.
In way of review, "Pierced for Our Transgressions" was a great book, well worth the read.

Book of the Week

I was out of town this past weekend, so I didn't post what book I'm reading this week.
It's called, "Pierced for Our Transgressions", subtitled "Rediscovering the Glory of Penal Substitution."
I thought it might be a little academic, but it's really not. And actually the second chapter was a great Bible study on the cross.
It's kept the song "In Christ Alone" in my heart as I've read particular the line, "That on the cross as Jesus died, the wrath of God was satisfied!" Great book, highly recommended.
Speaking of which, the David Wells is well worth the purchase. He describes the unhealthy condition of evangelicalism so's very thought-provoking. For those who are in full-time ministry it's somewhat like a mandatory read.

Your worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of God’s grace. And your best days or never so good that you are beyond the need of God’s grace.
