Weekend Linkage

A roundup of juicy links to tide you over until Monday . . .

My buddy The Internet Monk with a good post on reducing to Jesus.

Mark at GospelDrivenLife talks about real grace in the context of the work of Jesus.

If you can wade through the theological jargon, Scot McKnight asks some good questions in a post about The Gospel and The Church, and surmises "What we need more of is a gospel that summons folks into the Church as the worshipping, fellowship, missioning Body of Christ."

At Together 4 the Gospel, Mark Dever talks about "A Good Offense" An excerpt:
One part of clarity sometimes missed by earnest evangelists, however, is the willingness to offend. Clarity with the claims of Christ certainly will include the translation of the Gospel into words that our hearer understands, but it doesn’t necessarily mean translating it into words that our hearer will like. Too often advocates of relevant evangelism verge over into being advocates of irrelevant non-evangelism. A gospel which in no way offends the sinner has not been understood.

Mark Driscoll reflects on the ten year anniversary of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, where he is pastor. Lots of good insights about doing church and ministry in an innovative way in a postmodern culture, and about how dealing with public perceptions.

BCC's own Dirk Plantinga reflects on innovative churches and networking.

Finally, for all you bibliophiles out there, I have provided an update at my original solo blog listing all the books I've read since last September.

Happy surfing!

And see you this weekend!
