Mondays are for Fighting: A Gospel Reader

Repent, Believe and FIGHT!
What do I read and study to learn how to fight? Found a great starter list.

My friend Matt Adair from Christ Community in Watkinsville posted a great set of links to articles and sermons that shape who we are and what we do. Some of the authors are profs I had in grad school, pastors I respect, scholars I study and folks I hadn't heard of until I read their stuff here.

These 24 resources provide a good foundation for personal reading, small group discussion or understanding Crosspoint's mission and my personal vision. Issues we all face. Click here to find the live links.

Keller is a great writer and apologist, Challies is another great defender of the faith (I follow him on Twitter - and you could too if you finally relent and get a Twitter account), and Carson...well, he's one of the best.

These and other resources do much to restore weary travelers. Thanks for the jolt!
