D.A. Carson Lectures

In links on April 12, 2008 at 2:16 pm

D.A. Carson spoke, along with Steve Lawson and Tim Challies, at the Nashville Conference on the Church and Theology. These are from back in February but I just now got around to listening to them. (HT: Andy Naselli)

I was particularly helped by Carson’s We Preach Christ Crucified which outlined the gospel very well.

ipodAlso, if I may, I’d just like to point out what a blessing it is for me to have sermons/lectures/conference audio to listen to while I’m in the car. I’m sure everyone has their methods for doing this but here is how I go about it, hopefully this encourages you to make good use of your time sitting in traffic:

  1. Get yourself an MP3 player and a cassette adapter for your car stereo, it doesn’t have to be an iPod, any device will do
  2. Find some preachers/teachers you enjoy listening to and download them to your computer (try here, here, or here for some help)
  3. Create a playlist on your computer and call it “unheard sermons” add all the sermons you downloaded to that playlist
  4. Sync your MP3 player with your computer and select your unheard sermons playlist next time you hop in your car
  5. As you listen to sermons remove them from your playlist so that you know which ones you’ve listened to in the past
  6. As you download more sermons, be sure to add them to the end of the list so that you don’t skip any

Please let me know if you have found a different or better way of doing this, I’d love to hear of better methods!

Ligonier Ministries 2008 National Conference

In news on March 14, 2008 at 8:55 pm

From the Ligonier website:

Nearly half the population of the United States claims to be “born-again.” Self-identified “evangelicals” are a voting bloc courted by our major political parties, and a large percentage of citizens attend church services at least once a week. Yet, as we look at the culture around us, an unmistakable erosion of the Judeo-Christian ethic has taken place. God is regularly blasphemed, professing believers often live no differently from non-Christians, and many churches are captive to the trends of this present age.

On March 13-15, 2008, Ligonier Ministries will hold its 21st annual national conference, “Evangelism According to Jesus,” in Orlando, Fla. During three days of worship, fellowship, encouragement, study, and prayer, we will proclaim the different aspects of the Gospel and explain how they must impact our evangelism. Joining us will be respected pastors, theologians, and leaders Sinclair Ferguson, Steven J. Lawson, John MacArthur, C.J. Mahaney, R.C. Sproul Jr., and Joni Eareckson Tada, all of whom will remind us of the great truths of the Gospel and help us evangelize more effectively.
