[HT: Justin Taylor]

So if you’re going to cozy up in your home bracing for Hurricane Earl, let me recommend that you check out the latest 9Marks eJournal on the difficult and sobering doctrine of Hell.  It looks at it from a number of different angles (pastorally, theologically, exegetically).  Below are some of the contents that you’d find in the eJournal, Hell: Remembering the Awful Reality.

9Marks eJournal – Sept/Oct

Pastoral Perspectives on Hell

Mark Dever, Pastoral Fearmongering, Manipulation, and Hell

Our culture sneers at fear, as if there really is nothing to fear but fear itself. Yet Jesus told people to fear hell, and pastors today should do the same.

Kevin DeYoung, There’s Something Worse than Death
The doctrine of hell is ballast for our ministries, which will help us sail straight toward our most urgent task: proclaiming the gospel.

Sinclair Ferguson, What Then Shall We Preach on Hell?

Hell is an awful and overwhelming reality. Yet where Scripture speaks, pastors must not be silent. Here’s some practical help for this demanding calling.

Hell in Biblical and Theological Perspective

Greg Gilbert, Why Hell Is Integral to the Gospel

Some think that by minimizing or ignoring hell, they are making God more glorious and more loving. Far from it! The horror of what we have been saved from only intensifies the glory and wonder of our salvation.

Andrew David Naselli, Hellfire and Brimstone: Interpreting the New Testament’s Descriptions of Hell

The New Testament graphically and horrifically describes hell, which raises a thorny question: how should we interpret those dreadful images?

James M. Hamilton Jr., How Does Hell Glorify God?

Hell glorifies God by vindicating his holiness and faithfulness to his word, demonstrating his infinite worth, and magnifying his mercy and love toward the redeemed.

Gavin Ortlund, An Annotated Bibliography on Hell

This article contains brief reviews of seven key books on hell.

D.A. Carson has written a book called The God Who Is There: Finding Your Place in God’s Story.  It looks like an excellent book for small groups or to give to someone you are developing a relationship with to share the gospel (there is a corresponding leader’s guide as well).  The book comes from a 14-part seminar so aptly entitled “The God Who Is There” which took place at Bethlehem Baptist Church’s North Campus in Minneapolis.  The series will serve the church well because it simultaneously evangelizes non-Christians and edifies Christians by explaining the Bible’s storyline in a non-reductionistic way.  It’s one thing to know the Bible’s storyline, but it’s another to know one’s role in God’s ongoing story of redemption.  The God Who Is There engages people at the worldview-level.

What is really exciting is the fact that you can listen now to MP3s (full) of each seminar, as well as sample a video (10-minute previews) of the seminar.  There is supposed to be a DVD small group / class series coming out soon.

Here’s an early Father’s Day idea… Check out Seeds Family Worship and their CDs.   Basically, it’s Scripture set to song to aid in children memorizing Scripture.  It looks like a great resouce to aid in family worship or if you’re driving in the car with the kids.

Today, of course, is St. Patrick’s Day.  It’s also my wife’s birthday!  I bet most of you didn’t know that.  Of course, this means she gets inundated with everything green.

But, St. Patricks isn’t about green things, shamrocks, lerechauns, and the like.  Bottom line, God used Patrick in his role as a missionary and pastor.  Russel Moore writes on what evangelicals can learn from St. Patrick.  A small sample, he writes…

Any evangelical seeking to kindle a love for missions among the people of God will benefit from this volume’s demonstration that the Great Commission did not lie dormant between the apostle Paul and William Carey. Patrick’s love and zeal for the Irish may also inspire American evangelicals to repent of our hopelessness for the conversion of, say, the radical Islamic world—which is, after all, no more “hopeless” than the Irish barbarians of Patrick’s era.

Reid Monaghan, from Acts29 churches, gives a small biography on St. Patrick, and Mark Driscoll writes on why St. Patrick was one of the greatest missionaries to ever live.

Justin Taylor has a great post on Martyn Lloyd-Jones and the fact that 29 years ago today he went to be with the Lord.  I agree with Justin that he is widely considered to be one of the best preachers of the 20th century.

For biographies, see the following from Iain Murray, his official biographer and former assistant:

And…
