I would like to ask for prayers for my ministry in July and August. Besides regular pastoral visitations and evangelism I typically preach at least 4 times during the week but this summer it is going to be my busiest season of ministry.  Towards the end of summer I’ll be going overseas to teach in undisclosed countries on two different courses in theology.  At the same time there’s a lot I’m doing stateside: there’s a retreat, a conference and some other guest speaking at other churches.

I have been immensely blessed by John Frame’s teachings.  Frame has written on a wide array of topics from apologetics, philosphy, theology, worship, Cornelius Van Til’s Presuppositional apologetics, theological education and ethics.  He has just recently retired from teaching theology at Reformed Theological Seminary.

I think his lesser known Selected Shorter Writings are great addition to his Theology of Lordship Series.

Here are links to my review of each volumes in the Selected Shorter Writings Series.
