Best of the Rest w/e 12 Jul 2013

This week's round-up of things that have caught our eye from around the web.

Christianity is the world’s most (only?) falsifiable religion, yet it has survived. Why? Great post.

“Sin makes temptation a house pet…and is deceived to believe that it can be restrained by impositions of civility.” Rosaria Champagne Butterfield on DOMA.

Andrew tweeted this week: “Astonishing to be teaching on Luther and Romans, and then read this. Indulgences are back.”

“No Christian theologian before Constantine justified Christian participation in warfare.” Scot McKnight asks why.

“Since 2007, when it was published, academics have been raving to me about Charles Taylor’s A Secular Age,” writes David Brooks. “Courses, conferences and symposia have been organized around it, but it is almost invisible outside the academic world because the text is nearly 800 pages of dense, jargon-filled prose.” Here’s his valiant attempt to summarise it in more like 800 words.

Having finally finished Keller’s Center Church Matthew is pretty much in agreement with this review of it. What do you think?

“Church attendance in Greater London grew by 16% between 2005 and 2012” Interesting findings from British Religion in Numbers

“Let’s Level the Playing Field” writes Carl Trueman. Nicely put.

“Everyone wants a revolution. No one wants to do the dishes.” Excellent article by Tish Harrison Warren

This is the best Tim Keller message Andrew has ever heard, on “Jesus Vindicated.”
