Sorry I haven’t read more this week, and thus have fewer relevant links to share in this installment. I’ve been busy working on a new venture which isn’t really new, just something that’s been ongoing being branded as a division of my existing thing. I think every third emerging/missional blogger or pastor is paying the bills doing web development. Of the other two, one of them has a friend or brother or daughter or nephew’s mother-in-law’s dog walker who does, but if you’re that third one, I’m ready to talk business.
In the weeks ahead, I’ve got a workshop to prepare for presentation at a Phyllis Tickle conference in October, but for now I do have a few sparse links to share.
- Bible Merger: Scot McKnight clarifies a CT article… the TNIV and NIV will be updated and merged into the NIV2011. Jordon Cooper riffs on that, and I gotta say, I’m with Jordon (except for anything good he says about a Microsoft product)… and fwiw, I’ve got a print version of the NET Bible marked “Beta”.
- David Fitch: IF I JUST PREACH A GOOD SERMON- THEY WILL COME: Three Dying Myths (of Christendom) About Preaching. Some of these just really need to die… something about an overused citation on the definition of insanity.
- 50 things that are being killed by the internet
- While I was reading the foregoing, I noted two more links: 20 coolest Christian T-shirts for sale on web and 20 coolest atheist T-shirts for sale on the web
- Peter Rollins ran a parable contest, and now publishes the winners.
- Justin Taylor judges a book by its blurbs. Does that work? Maybe in this case?
- Paul Fromont opines briefly on an assertion by Andrew Perriman that “the emerging church is probably not a good entry point into the faith [because] it has evolved to deal with a quite different set of issues.”
