Must Read Interview

"And what may seem to be counter-intuitive to some, I personally have found that the more I deeply study systematic and biblical theology, the more wonder I have of the God we serve. The more He causes me to learn, the more I recognize how little I know, and so theology has become a devotional activity for me; a discipline that places me in a position of more deeply considering the beauty and perfections of God." --John Hendryx

John Hendryx has aptly said what I've found the impact of studying theology has been on my life.

The quote is from Michael Spencer's "Christians You Need To Know" with
John Hendryx.

As I've mentioned before, Monergism is an excellent clearinghouse of Reformed articles, links, commentaries and sermons. Well worth your time browing.

I love bible study, and I tend to think I'm fairly intelligent. You and my best friend Jennifer are Reformed and I can tell you both read about Theology quite a bit. Can you reccomend anything on the subject that doesn't immediately make me feel an idiot? Sometimes (and this isn't a dig at the Reformed!) there are so many $0.25 words on the page, that my already frazzled mind finds little peace there. What can I read that will help me to find rest in The Word?

I made "Busy Day Cake" tonight and wanted to thank you for posting the recipe - I especially enjoyed the yummy frosting! From now on I'm frosting cakes with that delicious recipe. While I was mixing the cake, I couldn't help imagining you in your Ukranian kitchen as you make that cake for your family. Its nice knowing you are there!

*grin* Glad you liked it, Marla!

Anne, I'd recommend starting with "Grace Unknown" by R.C. Sproul. And over the next few days I'll gather some of the links I like and see what other books might be good for the pick-up-put-down sort of reading that having lots of little kids necessitates. *grin*

I would like that list, too!

I am just a babe in theology but I find that my mind really likes being involved in thinking about God, and it feels like worship to me.

I will check that site out more. I've already stumbled across the internetmonk.com --always refreshing and thoughtful.
