Live Feed

If you didn't go over to the Resurgence for their live feed for the Text&Context Conference, you should. It's a really great feed to watch. I caught about half of the Q&A with Piper, Driscoll and Chandler.

I figured out how to embed it here, for those too lazy to click.

The rest of their schedule (in PST) is:

Pop Jesus

Every time I walk into Border's I pause at the new books tables, meandering them to see if there's anything worth giving a further look. One of the books that's been continually catching my eye is Dick Staub's The Culturally Savvy Christian, but since I have no time to get the reading done that's required for class, I'm not quite ready to pick up this one. So I was pleased to find that The Resurgence had interviewed Staub.

In these two videos he talks about culture's need for icons and its love affair, torrid or otherwise, with Jesus.
