ere are four items for weekend listening:
- A couple of months ago, I spent a whole day with the esteemed Dr. James White. One of the things we did that day was an hour-long studio interview where James answered questions about his ministry and his current work in the field of Islamic studies. You want to hear what kind of stuff James White and I talk about when we get together? That interview is available in four segments as a free download at the Grace to You website. It's a fascinating hour. Incidentally, for those of you here in Southern California, see this for information about Dr. White's debate with Jalal Abualrub in Fullerton this weekend.
- One of my seminars at this year's Shepherds' Conference was titled "Politically Incorrect? How to shepherd your congregation in an election year." It's a $2.00 download from the Shepherds' Fellowship website. However, because of the timeliness of this message during the election year, they gave us permission to post the entire message as a free download on the GraceLife Pulpit resource page. (As of this posting, that message is about the fourth one down on the list.) All the downloads there are free. Knock yourself out.
- Our friend (and honorary PyroManiac) Todd Friel interviewed John MacArthur on Way of the Master Radio earlier this week. My favorite moment was the sound bite from Ed McMahon which introduced John MacArthur, backed by one of the worst recordings of "MacArthur Park" ever. The conversation was mainly about John MacArthur's new book A Tale of Two Sons, but at the end, Todd, ever the provocateur, asked John MacArthur several hard questions about Emerging strategies and personalities. MacArthur pulled no punches in his reply.
- "Living Grace," a weekly radio broadcast featuring Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, is now streaming at Oneplace.com. You can also download the individual broadcasts for your iPod or sign up for the podcast. You want something meaty and edifying? Start listening to the Doctor. Let me encourage you to donate to the MLJ ministry, too. (ht: Doug McMasters)
On another matter: It's true. I'll be on the Band of Bloggers panel at T4G in Louisville next week. Timmy Brister has done a great job organizing the BoB event. For the second time ever, the whole PyroManiacs blogteam will be together in one place during that conference. Come and say hi to us. But be nice. We're going to be on our best behavior, because our wives will be there, too. See you there.
