“By giving us control, our new technologies tend to enhance existing idols in our lives. Instead of becoming more like Christ through the forming and shaping influence of the church community, we form, and shape, and personalize our community to make it more like us. We take control of things that are not ours to control. Could it be that our desire for control is short-circuiting the process of change and transformation God wants us to experience through the mess of real world, flesh and blood, face-to-face relationships?”
Tim Challies, The Next Story: Life and Faith After the Digital Explosion

“We deliberately forget because forgetting is a blessing. On both an emotional level and a spiritual level, forgetting is a natural part of the human experience and a natural function of the human brain. It is a feature, not a bug, one that saves us from being owned by our memories. Can a world that never forgets be a world that truly forgives?”
Tim Challies, The Next Story: Life and Faith After the Digital Explosion

“ Do you ever wonder why it is that many of history's titanic intellects managed to come to radically different conclusions? The answer is simple: If you begin your system of thought by refusing to acknowledge what you know to be true - if you start with a lie - the more brilliant and consistent you are in following that premise, the further from truth you will go. ”
Tim Challies

“The gospel is so valuable that no risk is unreasonable. Life is gained by laying it down for the gospel. If I live, I win and get to keep on preaching Christ. If I die, I win bigger by going directly to be with Christ...”
David Sitton, Reckless Abandon: A Modern-Day Gospel Pioneer's Exploits Among the Most Difficult to Reach Peoples

“God doesn't just "manage the damage," He definitively promises "to work everything for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.”
David Sitton

Giju Abraham Tim, could you please give me a recommendation for a study on the book of James? Thank you!


message 6: by Bill

Bill How many books do you aim to read in a year Tim? I'm looking for a motivating goal that's a little more in my world than DA Carson (500 apparently?!?!) or Spurgeon (250)!


message 5: by Tim

Tim Challies I've got a 9 hour drive down to Louisville tomorrow. The plan is to listen to "Gilead" by Marilynne Robinson. I may put a backup book on the iPhone in case "Gilead" doesn't grab me.


message 4: by Bill

Bill G'day Tim, welcome to goodreads!

It would be great to have your library and past reviews on goodreads! They would be automiatically displayed when anyone following you looks at those books on goodreads, which would be pretty helpful. A bit of work involved, but worth it!


message 3: by Tim

Tim Challies Did I really write "Goodreaders?" Sheesh. I'm not off to a good start here.

Hope you stick it out then!

Tim Challies At some point I will have to go back and add my library to Goodreaders (if I choose to stick it out). For now, though, I'll be adding books as I encounter them or as I add them to my collection.
