Psalm 145 – Dramatic Reading

October 5, 2008

Today, I came across an interesting dramatic reading of Psalm 145. There are few things I’d nitpick over (such as the cheering, the fact that Psalm is really designed to be sung, and some of the weird facial expressions and gestures of the presenter), but if you simply listen to the clip you’ll get to hear a reading of the one hundred forty-fifth psalm in the ESV.

H.T. to Sarah at Sarah’s Journal for pointing this out (link).

UPDATE: Evidently the man reading this psalm is Ryan Ferguson.

How Times Change!

October 3, 2008

A Bible reading marathon was “too Catholic” according to a rabbi quoted in this article (link), although several Muslims were taking part in the marathon that will be kicked off by the current pope, Benedict XVI.

Nehemiah 9:3 And they stood up in their place, and read in the book of the law of the LORD their God one fourth part of the day; and another fourth part they confessed, and worshipped the LORD their God.

Ten Reasons Why You Need Manton

September 11, 2008

I was pleased to read an article by Donald John MacLean at The Shepherd’s Scrapbook, explaining ten reasons why one should read Manton’s works. (link to article)

The only problem is this: good books cost money. The list price for the latest printing of Manton’s works is $1000 (US currency). It’s on sale at a number of book sellers for less than $500, and I saw one place that was offering the set for somewhere around $320. Still that’s not cheap. Thankfully, Archive.org has made an older printing of the collection free to download:
