In this episode of the Happy Rant Ted Kluck, Ronnie Martin, and Barnabas Piper do something unusual – they take on a really serious topic, rape culture. We go on to take on a couple fun topics too, but that one serious topic was one we felt needed to be addressed.
Out first sponsor this week is Moody Publishers and the book On Pastoring: A Short Guide to Living, Leading, and Ministering as a Pastor by H.B.Charles. This is a phenomenal, grounded resource that will help anyone in ministry or who is considering ministry. It majors on the majors and minors on the minors by emphasizing relationship with God, character, and a biblical life over strategies and techniques. Charles shares many anecdotes from his own ministry, both of failure and success, to bring points home. Buy this book if you are in ministry or to encourage someone you know in ministry.
Our second, but not lesser, sponsor is NavPress. The particularly want to highlight two books by Jerry Bridges, The Blessing of Humility and his recently re-released classic The Pursuit of Holiness. Both books are rich with theology and gentleness, both reflective of their author. Pick them up, work through them slowly, digest, and benefit.
Like every week, we want to offer a big thank you to Resonate Recordings, the fine folks who make us sound listenable. If you are looking for great people to help your church put out recorded sermon audio or help you with a podcast they’re your people.
