Take up thy phones and follow me...

I've been told for years that you cannot be a successful Christian without a regular personal study time in God's Word, and I believe it's true. But I don't think it necessary be in written form any more. With the world domination of the mp3 player, the listening limits of folks like me have been reduced big-time.

I work by myself most of the time, so I get to listen to stuff all day long. Last year, I listened to the whole Bible in two weeks. I highly recommend it for everybody at some point.

So, to the point. I just want to begin to share some of the best stuff I've listened to over the past two years since I got an Ipod. Let's start today with some good sites where some good stuff resides.

The ESV Study Bible- The one with David Cochran Heath is my favorite. He actually sounds like a normal person.

Don Carson lectures and sermons- Probably the smartest Christian on earth. Seriously. If ever I get a question to which I do not know the answer, I'll just respond, "I agree with Carson.".

Desiring God- The most comprehensive source on the internet, or so I say... God used John Piper to get me out the funk I caught while in Bible College.

Spirit Empowered Preaching- Arturo Azurdia III. The dude's a powerhouse, he kinda reminds me of an Old Testament Prophet, in pants. Try the stuff from Isaiah first. If you don't know what Monergism means, you probably wouldn't like it anyway... But there's a mountain of stuff to listen to there.

Tim Keller- You can find his stuff at Monergism, but this is his site. The Prodigal God stuff is mind-altering, and he's got his head on straight when it comes to the Gospel and culture.

That's enough for now, I don't want to hurt anybody.
