The workshops at this year’s Gospel Coalition National Conference have been good. And a few have been outstanding. Of the some 35 or so sessions, I’ve listened to about a third. So maybe there’s a few more gems just waiting to be unearthed. I’m hoping, anyway. Regardless, here are a few stand outs. None of them are “Must Listens,” but neither are they low to moderate.
Training the Next Generation of Pastors and Other Christian Leaders – Panel Discussion: R. Albert Mohler, Jr., Mark Driscoll, David Helm, Don Carson and Ligon Duncan
A fascinating round table discussion involving a few of evangelicalism’s bigger movers and shakers. If you listen to nothing else, check out Dr. Mohler’s understanding of the relationship between the seminary and the church. Start at 11:19. I very much appreciated his perspective. And to reiterate something I’ve already said, I really respect this man. He’s a good godly leader.
The Feminist Mistake – Mary Kassian
A theologically compelling and historically interesting recounting and appraisal of the feminist movement. Very good stuff!
Power Through Weakness – Tim Savage
A good exposition of the idea “When I am weak, then I am strong.”
What Should a Local Church Look Like? – Tim Keller, Crawford Loritts, and Mark Dever
How can a conversation between these three guys not be interesting? Need I say more?
