Combing the Net – 10/4/2010

Peter Jackson to Direct “The Hobbit” — Two responses: First, “FINALLY!!!” Second, has it really been seven years since “Return of the King?” Wow…

Druids Now Official a Religion — Nature worshipers are now tax-exempt in Britain.

Chick-Fil-A’s Great Date Night — Anybody in the Chattanooga area (or looking to take a trip) might be interested in this free events tomorrow evening, aimed at helping couples “rediscover the joy of dating”. Even though we wno’t be able to attend, I’m thankful for Chick-Fil-A’s commitment to families!

Martin Luther: Lazy Man — A day in the life of the great reformer, a year before he posted his 95 theses on the Wittenberg door.

The Reformer — The cover story from the new edition of Christianity Today is about SBTS president Al Mohler, and his influence as a reformer in the Southern Baptist Convention (and evangelicalism-at-large). I also appreciated Trevin Wax’s nuanced reflections on this article, which you can read here.

2010 Desiring God National Conference Audio — You can now listen online to all sessions from the conference. The speakers were Rick Warren, Thabiti Anyabwile, Francis Chan, R.C. Sproul, Al Mohler, and John Piper.

This gave me a good laugh this morning… it’s Jesse Jackson reading “Green Eggs & Ham” by Dr. Seuss. (HT: Kevin DeYoung)
