Resources for Preaching/Teaching Psalm 91

As mentioned in the last post, I intend to comment on the resources I use each time I prepare to teach or preach a Psalm. Recently I taught Psalm 91 in an adult Sunday School class. Eric Lane’s Psalms 90-150: The Lord Reigns (Christian Focus, 2006) was a bit new to me so I tried […]

What Resources are Good for Help Preaching the Psalms?

Along the way I have lamented the lack of great resources for help in preaching the Psalms. There is a general problem of Bible commentaries getting bogged down in details and seeming to forget this is the word of God to the people of God. But this is particularly aggravated with the Psalms. At least […]

2013 Bibles & Bible Reference Survey

The 2013 version of my annual survey of new study Bibles and Bible reference works for Preaching Magazine is now available. The photo above shows the books which are covered in this installment. I hope it is helpful to you as you study the text. And perhaps the timing will help you with requests for […]

Video of Messages at Charlotte Chapel Conference

Earlier this year I mentioned The Call conference for pastors to be held at Charlotte Chapel in Edinburgh, Scotland. I was blessed to be apart and benefited from all the messages. I have mentioned some of them along the way but just recently noticed that video of all the messages has been posted online. So, […]

Preaching Psalm 128, Resources

My purpose in this post is simply to give my own opinion on what resources I found most helpful in preparing to preach Psalm 128.  I am not addressing which resources are the best on the Psalms in general. On Psalm 128, the overall most helpful source I found was Spurgeon’s Treasury of David.  I […]

Practical Shepherding, new blog

Brian Croft, pastor of Auburndale Baptist Church, Louisville, KY, is a faithful pastor whom I am blessed to call a friend. He has written two very helpful books on pastoral ministry (Visit the Sick, & Test, Train, Affirm, and Send into Ministry: Recovering the Local Church’s Responsibility to the External Call), so I am pleased that […]

My good friend and colleague has launched a website making available various papers and addresses he has given (print and audio). Brad is an excellent theologian in the classic mold- not merely academic but also with a heart for the church. He has given serious thought to a number of issues including education, the life […]

Concordia Commentary

I try to stay fairly well aware of commentaries and commentary series with my work at the Ryan Center for Biblical Studies and in writing an annual survey of Bible reference works for Preaching Magazine. However, I have recently realized that I had entirely missed a significant series. As part of the work for this […]

As part of my class on Paul’s letters one of the daily assignments always is to trace the argument of a paragraph in Paul’s letters.Tom Schreiner has a helpful discussion of this in his little book Interpreting the Pauline Epistles, and some readers may have heard John Piper talk about “arcing.” I have just recently […]

Raising Bible Saturated Kids!

David and Sally Michael, from Children Desiring God, recently led three breakout sessions on leading children in Bible Study as part of the “Word Within the Word” conference at Union University. Too often the importance of teaching our children well is missed by both families and churches. The Michael’s passion is to change this. These […]
