Lent Course resources

2009 March 17
by Tim V-B

This is a list of useful resources on the subject of “how to change” and a Biblical view of the heart, to supplement the 2009 Lent Course “Grace that Transforms”.  I plan to post the Lent Course once I’ve turned my cryptic notes into something readable!

For an excellent book, you would be hard to find anything better than “You Can Change” by Tim Chester. Available here from The Good Book Company.  Chapter 5 – on the 4 Great Truths to Live by – is available as a free download (pdf) from here.

Tim Keller’s excellent article “Talking about Idolatry in a Postmodern Age” is all over the web.   Here as pdf or here as web page.  At 4 pages it’s a great beginning article.  In it he quotes David Powlison’s longer essay on “Idols of the Heart and Vanity Fair.”  This is available as pdf here.

On the Lent Course I keep to the language of “over-desires.” See e.g. Ephesians 2:1-3; Romans 1:21-25; Galatians 5:16-18; 1 Peter 2:11 & 4:2; 1 John 2:15-17; James 1:14-15 & 4:1-4.  You will find some excellent material, reproduced from a book by Powlison, in a FAQ format, here at Theologica.

Happy Reading!
