This article originally appeared on my blog (Here). “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:45) Service is not a uniquely Christian concept. The language of service is something engrained throughout society....

OK, fess up:
Name one book that you know you should read, that you ought to read, that you've been meaning to read, that you've been trying to get around to reading, but you just haven't done it yet, for whatever reason. Secular books can be included.
For me, one example is Shelby Foote's 3-volume The Civil War. Owned the set for years, have dipped into...
Hello everyone, I am a Chinese Christian from Malaysia and recently I just enrolled in a seminary.
It's a good school but I am hoping to push my academic level higher than what is required of me here. I wonder if anyone who was/is from WTS here would be willing to send me your course syllabi (MAR/MDiv). I recently read Vos and Warfield and was very fascinated by them. I happened to learn that...

He has fully paid for all my sins with his precious blood,(d) and has set me free from the tyranny of the devil.(e) He also watches over me in...
I wonder if anyone had any recommendations for non-readers? What book(s) would you recommend for someone who hasn't really grown up reading and for whom reading through a book is a tough ask? Something to dip one's toes in without getting frustrated and discouraged.
I've met quite a few young Christian men who haven't really gotten into books, and I'm not perfectly clear what...
Just wondering - do many Reformed Seminaries teach courses on logic. Specifically to equip pastors to use careful logical thinking in their ministry? I have a friend who did a course in logic at Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. Is this widespread at Reformed Seminaries?
Background: I am 32, have already served thus far 10 years total as an Army Officer (more than 5 years in the reserves), I have a desire to go into ministry and serve my country, and I am getting close to promotion for Major. I attend a church in the PCA. In reflecting on what I've done and where I'm at and what I would like to do, I assess myself as being in a pickle. Part of me want to...
