It’s Time

Time Magazine has just published a list of the 10 ideas changing the world right now. Number 3. New Calvinism.

There’ll be a bunch of links to some reactions in my link post today. But here’s the actual article.

And here’s a quote:

“Calvinism, cousin to the Reformation’s other pillar, Lutheranism, is a bit less dour than its critics claim: it offers a rock-steady deity who orchestrates absolutely everything, including illness (or home foreclosure!), by a logic we may not understand but don’t have to second-guess. Our satisfaction — and our purpose — is fulfilled simply by “glorifying” him.”

The article names John Piper, Mark Driscoll and Albert Mohler as leaders of this pack.

Ten of the best

People who write about successful blogging are almost unanimously in favour of having numeric lists for posts. They’re meant to be good reading and a nice way to encourage brevity.

Here’s my top 1 site for a list of Time Magazine’s “top tens” from 2008.
