Review:  Nate Saint: Operation Auca – This week Danika Cooley posted a review of Nate Saint: Operation Auca on her Thinking Kids Blog. Here’s a bit of what she had to say:

“Nancy Drummond’s new biography of Nate Saint is a rare emotional gem… It’s the story of how our humble service in His name can continue generations after we have joined Jesus after our lives here are done. I highly recommend Nate Saint: Operation Auca by Nancy Drummond.  Bravo, Nancy.”

Does Your Church Have Room to Sing of Lament? – Justin Taylor shares an excerpt from Carl Trueman’s The Wages of Spin, exploring the question, “What Can Miserable Christians Sing?” Be sure to check it out at Justin’s Between Two Worlds blog.

Eric C. Redmond on The Ascension by Chester and Woodrow – Many thanks to Eric C. Redmond for his mention of The Ascension: Humanity in the Presence of God by Tim Chester and Jonny Woodrow on his blog (A Man from Issachar). Here’s Eric’s endorsement in full:

“Tim Chester and Jonny Woodrow pull back the curtains of the true temple to disclose the glories of the ongoing work of the Savior on our behalf. They powerfully reveal the Ascension as fulfillment of what all of Redemptive History foreshadows—that the Lord’s own will enter his presence only through the work of the one who can go up into the very clouds of God Almighty.  Along the way the seasoned churchmen teach us how to read the two Testaments with great Biblical-theological insight. Meditation upon this exposition of Christ’s “going up” will strengthen all aspects of our private and corporate worship, prayer, evangelism, of public kingdom living and of Gospel preaching. Chester and Woodrow have given us a gift that will lift our eyes from this temporal horizon to the steppes of eternal joys of our High Priest in heaven.”

The Ascension is currently available in the UK and will release in the US, May 2013.
