A Wonderful Learning Experience with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries

I recently completed the initial online course offered by RZIM Academy. It is called the Core Module. Here is a link to a new video which describes what is offered in the course. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Rosaria Champagne Butterfield and her "Train Wreck Conversion"

Although published over a year ago in Christianity Today, I was moved tonight as I re-read her observations and reflections of the work of God in her life from 15 years ago. You can find it here.

The Culmination of a 20 year Bible Translation Project in the South Sudan

Our local church gave about $80,000 two years ago to help publish a Bible which had been translated by Leoma Gilley and the team at Wycliffe Bible Translators. It was for the Shilluk people who live in the South Sudan.  Here is a video from Cedar Springs PC in Knoxville which tells about the completion of this 20 year project.

How to Read the Whole Bible in 2014

Psalm 1 describes some of the amazing benefits of meditating on God's Word. I believe it is the rare person who does not struggle with cultivating the habit of reading God's Word daily, much less meditating on it throughout their waking moments.

Justin Taylor has a very helpful post on "How to Read the Bible in 2014." You can find it here.  He also shares the offer from Crossway on getting the ESV on audio for free during January 2014. Find it here.

Dr. Douglas Kelly also has a helpful plan which I posted many months ago. Here is the post from Sept. 2012:

A SUGGESTED PLAN FOR BIBLE READING (adapted from If God Already Knows Why Pray? By Douglas F. Kelly) This plan has been helpful to many since Puritan times and was designed to cover the Scriptures in exactly 365 days. Its special value is that it gives you a varied diet by exposing you to different parts of Scripture each day while providing continuity by causing you to return to the same section on the same day of the week all through the year.
