Geeks of Christ Presents…March 30, 2012

Here’s a list of what I’ve been reading, listening to, watching, whatever from around the web.

Gorgeous Grimm: 130 Years of Brothers Grimm Visual Legacy
Book Review by Maria Popova

“The fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm, part of UNESCO’s Memory of the World Register for the preservation of cultural documents, have been delighting and terrifying children since 1812, transfixing generations of parents, psychologists, and academics.”

Jesus Loves You Too, Aliens
by James F McGrath

McGrath presents a funny little cartoon featuring one of my favorite androids. He mentions a chapter in his book, Religion and Science Fiction, which sounds absolutely fascinating. I’m definitely going to check it out!

The Demands of Justice
by Tim Challies

A self-inflicted bullet to the head hardly seems to satisfy the demands of justice based on the lives of millions of Jews and countless millions of other lives destroyed in the war he began.”

Authentic Church. Book review
Book by Vaughn Roberts. Review by Collin Hansen

The authentic work of the Spirit is seen, not when people get excited by some new message or miracle, but rather when their eyes are opened and their hearts are filled with an ever-deepening appreciation of the Bible’s teaching about what God has done for them in Christ and a growing longing to live in light of all they have received from him.”

Towards A Christocentric Hermeneutic Part 1: Against Principlizing
by Leslie Keeney

Ironically, though, many evangelicals who say they study the Bible inductively, actually ignore the biggest presupposition they have—that the ultimate purpose of the Bible is to provide us with a set of principles to live by.”

by Paul van Dyk featuring Adam Smith
