2016_LMM_Carson_Blog-header

Logos March Madness is back, and round one is underway! If you haven’t yet, rally your friends and vote for your favorite authors—those eliminated from this round will get a 30% discount, but the winners will advance to round two, and maybe further! That’s good news for you: the longer the authors last, the deeper the discounts on their selected works.

If you’ve scanned the matchups, you probably noticed one former champion is conspicuously absent. Nope, it wasn’t an accident: D.A. Carson is taking a breather from the competition. Carson was champion three out of four years! What better way to celebrate world champions and record breakers than induction into a hall of fame?

How to Get Your Dream Library without Spending a Fortune

vast-library-blog-headerImagine a colossal library. These words conjure different images for everyone. Whether the library in your mind features gothic architecture or fluorescent lights, slim ladders or elevators, there’s one constant: shelves and shelves of books. Heavy, dusty, cumbersome—as the library grows, the task of research grows ever daunting.

Have You Read the Most Thumbed-Through, Thumbs-Upped Books?

2015-YearInReview-Blog-Header_620x325In a poignant scene from a mid-90’s movie, a character is asked to select a favorite book from among a vast library. She responds rapturously, “I could no sooner choose a favorite star in the heavens!”

Clinging to Faith in the Face of Adversity

climb-blog-header

Stay the course. Hold fast. Press on. Go the distance. Cowboy up. Persevere. Persist. Endure.

There’s no shortage of ways to offer encouragement—even a Facebook like or a hang-in-there cat might do. But cute phrases and cheesy posters fall flat in the face of genuine hardship. In times of adversity, we don’t need a hashtag—we need hope. But even with eyes fixed on Jesus, it’s hard to imagine the summit when all you see is the climb. That’s when stories can be powerful.

When God Interrupts, Something Great Is About to Happen

God has other plans

God has a way of interrupting our plans.

We set out upon one path and he sweeps us off on a different and more incredible journey than we ever anticipated. Some of the most influential Christians in history began their stories on the unlikeliest of paths. William Carey, lauded as the father of modern missions, started life as a humble shoe cobbler. Another young man dreamed of a wealthy life as a successful shoe salesman, then went on to found one of the most influential Christian schools in the world: Moody Bible Institute. That man was, of course, Dwight L. Moody.

Another man, born in Scotland at the turn of the nineteenth century, started his career as a doctor and an atheist. But God took him on a life-changing journey that would carry him across four continents and over thousands of miles of open ocean—and last 38 years.

His story is testimony to what can happen when we let go of our own plans, and entrust our future to God.

How an Unlikely Friendship Transformed Protestant Art

unlikely-friendship

Friendship can overcome even the most intense disagreements.

Shaw and Chesterton flanking their mutual friend, the poet Hilaire Belloc.

Shaw and Chesterton flanking their mutual friend Hilaire Belloc.

Case in point: the Catholic apologist and satirist G.K. Chesterton found an unlikely friend in George Bernard Shaw, the modernist writer who famously balked at Christian mores.

The pair was a study in contrast, both physically and philosophically. On one occasion, Chesterton quipped to Shaw, “To look at you, anyone would think a famine had struck England.” Without missing a beat, Shaw returned, “To look at you, anyone would think you have caused it.”

Chesterton and Shaw often engaged in public debates (once on the tongue-in-cheek question of “Do we agree?”), but privately were close companions who held one another in great esteem.

But friendship can do more than bridge divides; sometimes, friendship changes minds.
