Here is a great collection of Francis Schaeffer resources – Francis Schaeffer Collection

From the site:

“Dr. Schaeffer was a Christian theologian and philosopher who, together with his wife Edith, founded the first L’Abri community in Switzerland in 1955. From the 1960’s, until his death in 1984, Dr Schaeffer’s lectures and discussions were recorded as a resource for future students.”

Great discussion on discipleship by Stephen Smallman published in byFaith Magazine – Discipleship: A Synonym for Christian Living. Here he lays out 10 “building blocks” in order “to lay a foundation for ongoing discipleship.”

“A disciple of Jesus is a person who has heard the call of Jesus and has responded by repenting, believing the gospel, and following Him.” Stephen Stallman

Keller: “Making Sense of Scripture’s ‘Inconsistency'”

Link: “Making Sense of Scriptures’s ‘Inconsistency'”

Here is a helpful Article by Dr. Tim Keller, pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City.

Keller briefly addresses the skeptics who like to “dismiss Christians” by pointing to so-called “inconsistencies” in their application of Biblical teaching.

The article is not directed toward inconsistencies of Christians in their practice (i.e. obedience to the Lord). Rather, the thrust of the article is toward an explanation of the Bible’s consistency in its teaching, specifically explaining how to understand the context of various types of laws the Bible puts forward. The key to understanding is Jesus Christ.

For those who are sincere in the question of Biblical consistency in such things, this article provides a concise and solid answer.

Update: Version 6 is available for Logos and version 11 for Accordance – While I’ve updated from Logos version 5 and Accordance 10 (seems necessary), my review doesn’t cover the changes. However, I’ve been using the programs with the updates, and the changes really haven’t seemed to effect most of what my review covers. See the Logos and Accordance sites for more info.
