Jesus Is God: Jude and Peter Tell Me So

The epistles of Peter and Jude are often overlooked in preaching and Bible study. Not only are they nestled among the more popular letters of Paul and the book of Revelation, but portions of these epistles sound odd to our modern sensibilities. That wasn’t the case in the first century. We can better grasp the meaning of these letters if we understand what they have in common with influential ancient Jewish and Christian writings that were circulating at the time. One of those literary works is...

Where Did All This Pentecostalism Come From?

I t is impossible to consider the modern history or contemporary state of Christianity without accounting for the sudden rise, the explosive spread, and the worldwide impact of Pentecostalism. To that end, I’ve been reading several books on the subject, focused especially on the Azusa Street Revival, which most historians consider the setting in which Pentecostalism began. Here are a few key points I’ve learned about the Azusa Street Revival and the Azusa Street Mission that h...

Showcase of 45 Magnificent Logo Designs With Wings

Wings and winged creatures have appeared in identity designs for centuries as part of heraldic crests, military insignias and automotive logos. They have become a symbol of prestige, strength and speed, with great examples being air force pilot badges and luxury car emblems such as Bentley or Aston Martin. Designers still make use of these symbols in their designs today, sometimes combined with modern art styles give the logo a more abstract appearance. In today’s inspiration showcase I present ...

What Has the Lord Been Teaching You From His Word?

Earlier in the week, eager to be encouraged, I put this question out to Twitter: What has the Lord been teaching you from his Word recently? The responses were quick, plentiful, and encouraging. Here are a few of them. (Click here to read them all.) I've been meditating on the Good Samaritan, and I'm learning that loving our enemies isn't merely the same as not "repaying evil for evil", it means returning love for evil. It's been quite convicting. — Samuel Sey ...

A Brief Introduction to the Heart of Abraham Kuyper

Last year Lexham Press released a book of daily devotions from the young Abraham Kuyper, Honey from the Rock. Though most know Kuyper now for his Christian cultural engagement, in his time he was better known for his personal meditations. George Harinck, professor of history at the Free University of Amsterdam and Theological University of Kampen, writes in his endorsement of the book: Kuyper is best known for his Christian vision of cultural engagement. This is his legacy, but in Kuyper’s time...

3 Reasons to Study the Biblical Geography of Israel

Israel’s geography is more than side trivia for the events in the Bible—it’s the stage God chose to place the characters of his story. The narrative unfolds across many different landscapes, from the Mediterranean coastal region to the lower Galilee to the southern desert and beyond. It’s an epic story of God’s kingdom expanding from a garden to the whole known world. The Bible’s original audience would’ve known these places and regions and why they were important to the story. But today’s Bible...

Beyond the 88: A No-Fear Beginner’s Guide to Preparing the Piano

In my university music department, I run a weekly composition colloquium, bringing in guest composers and new music performers, as well as faculty speakers, with the latter often coming to talk about things like idiomatic writing and extended techniques for a particular instrument, or setting up a composer website, or digital publishing. A couple of years ago, some of my composition students asked me if I could spend one of those meetings on extended techniques for piano. I dug through my scores...

Why You Shouldn’t Stop Blogging (or Why You Should Consider Starting)

I have said a few times and in a few ways that I’m concerned about what seems to be a growing trend: Bloggers are shuttering their blogs and instead submitting articles to the major ministry sites. If they aren’t shuttering their blogs altogether, they are writing on them less or using them primarily as a kind of resume to link to the material they’ve written elsewhere. Please hear me: I appreciate those major ministries, I enjoy reading their sites, and I am grateful for the...

Take Better Care of Yourself By Making Small Changes

These days, being a musician usually means managing many aspects of our careers: performer, educator, composer, etc. Then, each one of those inherently comes with many different job descriptions: content creator, marketer, bookkeeper, project manager, writer/blogger, graphic designer, and administrative assistant! Many of us are doing all of those things ourselves, and it’s not easy. So it’s not surprising that it can feel hard to add healthy habits to our lives when not dropping one of the ball...

It’s 2019, When Will Sex Toys Deliver on Their High-Tech Promises?

It’s 2019. We’ve reached the age of Back to the Future and Blade Runner. But if you take a look outside, it looks nothing like those dystopian movies have promised. And while we don’t know what the sex toys of the fictional future are supposed to look like, I can’t help but wonder if it would measure up. I know that I personally am a bit disappointed at how sex toys have failed to reach their potential by now. Why? I’m glad you asked. Bluetooth Isn’t Body Compatible As long as we rely on wirel...

What Amy Carmichael Hung on Her Wall

I spent a good portion of last year scouring the world for objects of historical importance. I read histories and biographies before I left so they could shape the direction of my travels. I read histories and biographies after I returned so they could interpret what I had seen and experienced. Here’s one case where it all came together just perfectly. Before I embarked on my journeys to Ireland and India I read biographies of Amy Carmichael, so I knew key facts about her lif...

How to Use Notes to Access Church Documents

Of all of the new Logos 8 features, I’m continuing to get more questions about Notes than any other. Regardless of the specific question, the key to understanding Logos 8 Notes is that it’s a single database rather than multiple files. Once that big picture sinks in, the sky is the limit. Because we can add and tag individual notes, then access them in a variety of ways using the sidebar with its various filters. To help stimulate your thinking about Notes, try placing in the database any info...

Supreme Court to Decide if Marks With Scandalous Matter May Be Registered

Last Friday, the Supreme Court decided it will hear the Brunetti case, and take a closer look at Section 2(a) of the Lanham Act, the portion forbidding federal registration of trademarks having matter that is scandalous or immoral. So, it appears my big prediction for 2019 is pointing in the affirmative direction: “In terms of my big trademark prediction for 2019, it will be revealed whether the scandalous bar to federal registration is invalidated, whether or not the Supreme Court agrees to hea...

5 Common Inefficiencies That Affect HVAC System’s Efficiency

Introduction This (long) post initiated by the necessity to answer the following question: How much the HVAC system can affect the building’s overall efficiency? Well, the short answer is that for office buildings, the HVAC system contributes about 25 – 30% on the total building energy use! It is more for laboratories, since much more energy is demanded for fume hoods and lab equipment. Moreover, about 25% of an office building’s energy is used for lighting and the balance for plug loads... ...

Human Comfort & HVAC System Operation

Introduction The goal of the heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) system is to create and maintain a comfortable environment within a building. Depending on geographic location and building construction, various types of interior climate control systems help ensure that interior spaces are maintained at comfortable levels year-round. With today’s energy conservation concerns, buildings are constructed to be much tighter, reducing the level of natural exchange between indoor and... ...

Want to Change Your Congregation? Kill the Taskmaster.

The first legalist you must agitate is yourself. At the start of the year, many of us are mindful of how we want this year to be different. Which means sooner or later we have to ask, “How do I change?” I’ve been thinking about how the Bible answers that question and what it means for preaching. “Be transformed by the renewing of your mind” (not your willpower). — Romans 12:1 “Apart from me you can do nothing.” — Jesus “It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.” — Galatians 2:20 Th...

Introducing the Midnight Caller Sound Magazine

I like sound collages. I always have. Well, at least since I got my own copy of the White Album and listened through “Revolution 9” with more than a little bit of excited fear. Not to be too artsy-fartsy about it but there is something fascinating with the deconstruction/reconstruction of sound when you change the … Continue reading Introducing the Midnight Caller Sound Magazine → Read more at Glorious Noise...

Three Kinds of Blog (and the Future of Christian Blogging)

N ear the end of 2018 I went through the long list of blogs I’ve subscribed to over the years and was both surprised and dismayed to see how many have gone dormant or closed down. By definition, these were blogs I enjoyed reading and that had proven beneficial to me. Obviously there will always be some measure of attrition, but there was so much this year that I know there must be some common factors at play. I am going to think about this more in the weeks to come, but today ...

This Is Probably the Best Time Management Book Ever: Interview with Matt Perman

Matt Perman deserves credit for helping a lot of people do more stuff. But that’s not the point of his book. Matt actually wants to equip you to do stuff that matters. I interviewed Matt recently on his exceptional time management book, What’s Best Next: How the Gospel Transforms the Way You Get Things Done.  Speaking personally, this book has been a game-changer for me as I balance family, PhD, work, exercise, artistic endeavors, ministry, sleep, really everything that goes into every single d...

Comforting Quotes for Those Who Are Suffering

W ithout a doubt, the most impactful book I read last year was A Book of Comfort for Those in Sickness. I’m sure its significance was partly due to some medical struggles I’ve been having recently, but also simply because life is full of difficulties. We all go through difficult times in these difficult lives in this broken world, and a book like this one delivers comfort rooted in the Comforter. I’ve collected some of my favorite quotes from the book, hoping they comfort you ...

Read Some Old Books in 2019

Guest writer Adam B. Shaeffer holds an MA in Spiritual Formation from Talbot School of Theology and a PhD in Theology from Durham University. He is already a big fan of Logos 8. In my previous posts, I’ve highlighted some of the new features in Logos 8, but in this post, let me turn to an oldie but goodie: Reading Plans. As I’ve already made clear in another post, I love C.S. Lewis. His imagination and clarity have been gifts to me through the years. It’s fair to say that he has shaped my thinki...
