2. Do Leaders Need to Be Holy? (Chris Carr via Trevin Wax) – Carr blogs on personal holiness and leadership.
3. How I Write, How I Live (Tim Challies) – Challies blogs on writing and living it out. He also shares his experience as a barista of Starbucks. Unfortunately, he doesn’t love coffee!
4. The Authority of Preaching for Readers and Non-Readers (John Piper) – Piper blogs on the authority of preaching. He writes: “The authority of preaching is rooted finally in the absolute authority of God. That root passes through the infallible Word of God, the Bible…Therefore authority is not intrinsic to the preacher. It is intrinsic only to God and his written word.”
