McFlurry's McLinks (14)

It's time to launch another McFlurry's McLinks, the fourteenth batch of linkable goodness from my Google Reader subscriptions and other web reading. Load up on extra sprinkles and enjoy an ice cream high on these tasty treats:

On preaching, Abraham Piper contends that preaching is the easiest form of public speaking. Check out why he says that - I'm not sure that I practice his suggestion, but I'm sure I know some who do! The book on preparing to teach the Bible, Dig Deeper has been published in the UK for years, but it's only just being published in the US, so Josh Harris had an interesting interview with one of the authors, Nigel Beynon. étrangère has a new development to help with getting to know the Bible better.

On doctrine, mediatree was pondering predestination. Challies asks what the difference is between Joel Osteen and a fortune cookie. I previously linked to the Irish evangelical statement on her consecration, but Al Mohler also considered the surrender of sexual morality surrounding Mary Glasspool. For an example, check out this sermon by the Provost of Glasgow Cathedral, 'preaching' at an Affirmation Scotland service from Acts 2. What's missing? Yes, you've guessed it - repentance!

One Lutheran set out to summarise the Bible in sixty-six verses. Would you use the same ones? Meanwhile David Keen (who thankfully hasn't packed in blogging after his Lenten break) linked to an online collection of Bible art. Some interesting pictures here. Irish Calvinist normally has something worth thinking about. This time, check out his thoughts on lazy missionaries and us.

Mindkee's poetry is back with a bang, this time on Babylon. Her friend, travels with my yak writes about her recent experience of Communion.

In the realm of fun, Abraham Piper linked to a vocab test - my score was reasonable, but I think there are differences in how words are used in American English and 'proper' English - divided by a common language, as someone once said.

There are two video offerings this time round. First up, Abraham Piper had this video, on how the Lord of the Rings should have ended (a lot more quickly):

Second, the Rend Collective worship on the iPhones in a remarkable way:
