Weekly Wraps (January 2-8, 2012)

Ed Stetzer on purpose and heaven (research), Collin Hansen on 2011 theology stories, Jason Helopoulos on church planting (actually, planter), and et cetera.

1. Answering Questions People Actually Ask (Ed Stetzer) – Stetzer blogs on a research on purpose and heaven. Interesting!

2. My Top 10 Theology Stories of 2011 (Collin Hansen) – Hansen blogs the top theological stories of the past year. As expected, the Rob Bell mania makes it to the top.

4. Top Religion News Stories in 2011 from CT (Ed Stetzer) – Another compilation of the top stories for the past year. This time from Christianity Today.

5. What if? (Jason Helopoulos) – Helopoulos on church planting and laypeople. He asks: “What if individuals and families began to consider moving to a new location so that they could help start or serve in a church plant or young church?” Inspiring!

6. The Mission of the Church (Kevin DeYoung) – DeYoung on James Bannerman’s book about the Church. Indeed, the Church is not a substitute.

7. Christian Hedonist Calvinism (John Piper) – Piper fusing Christian Hedonism and Calvinism. Compelling!

8. When Your Preacher Is Not John Piper (Steve Burchett) – Burchett gives five suggestion to those who aren’t pastored by Piper. This is a helpful post, since I’m a Piper follower.

9. How to Preach Like John Piper Without Sounding Like Him (Eric McKiddie) – McKiddie blogs on what makes Piper’s preaching great: Logos and Pathos. Another helpful post.
