The New Covenant Way: A soli deo teaching

The New Covenant Way: A teaching presented at soli deo August 1, 2006 by Michael Spencer One of the “values” of this fellowship is this: “Soli deo is teaching the Bible in a New Covenant-emphasized, Christ-centered, grace-exalting way.” I’m fairly certain that the part of that sentence that may raise the most questions is the […]

Weekend File: 7:29:06

Let’s start out the weekend with good news. Very good. Ken Myers is taking the Mars Hill Audio site to podcasting. That means you will be able to hear a monthly version of MHA, featuring archival interviews, some new things and more. Long overdue, and a great addition to the blogosphere. Here’s the link, though […]

Internet Monk Radio Podcast 9

Internet Radio Podcast 9. First time using Garageband, but I mixed the sound quality way down to get the file smaller. I’m pleased overall. Topics: I am awarded “Spirit of AntiChrist.” The Coffeehouse. Evangelical Fanboys. CCM Patrol. Technology report.

The Coffeehouse: A Story

Skip Towne opened the door to his office and sat down to check his voice mail. Skip had been youth minister at Central Baptist Church for four years. As associate minister for youth at a large, traditional Baptist church, his life was always busy. Three services on Sunday, visitation on Sunday afternoons and youth group […]

The Sky Is Falling: Alan Roxburgh’s Vision of Missional Leadership

Bill Kinnon is a faithful IM reader who does a lot of visual media projects. He’s brought to my attention his video for Alan Roxburgh’s new book, The Sky is Falling. I am familar with Roxburgh from other books and many web sites. He’s an academic with the ability to say some very practical, helpful […]

Recommendation: “What Was I Thinking?” by Steve Brown

At least once a year, I pick up a book by Reformed Seminary professor, radio talk show guy and Key Life speaker/teacher Steve Brown, and I am always glad I did. In fact, Steve Brown’s unique perspective in the reformed world is one of the absolute necessities for me in these post-evangelical, post-reformed times. His […]

Internet Monk Radio Podcast #8

Internet Monk Radio Podcast 8. Pastoring in the comments? A Vytorin ad. No more BHT Rule 40. I’m not going to be a Roman Catholic.

The Missionary Headache: Why Evangelicals Need To Support The Missionaries Among Us

It goes without saying that new ways of thinking rarely bring out the best in evangelicalism. Those dreaded “paradigm shifts” usually elicit lots of sermons on topics like “The Christian Worldview” and “The Threat of Relativistic New Age Contemplative Prayer.” No doubt, there are many times that the evangelical response to a new way of […]


I’ve put together a 30 minute podcast on Thomas Merton. I cover a lot of Merton basics, and try to put some of Merton’s interest in Eastern “mysticism” in perspective. I reduced the sound quality to make the file smaller.

Riffs: 7:21:06

Without a doubt, there are no words to describe the working over Tom Merton is getting at the hands of the TR watchbloggers. Apparently, Merton is a candidate for the antiChrist and the source of all that’s wrong in evangelicalism. Pretty good for a guy who died by getting tangled up with a fan in […]
