Resurgence roundup, 5/31/13
This week, we’re reading about how not to waste our summer, Piper on Lewis, and how to examine the authenticity of biblical texts, and we’re applying for ReTrain!
The “Don’t waste your summer!” series
The Gospel Project
This is an excellent series of posts from various authors on redeeming the summer, with a little bit of something for everyone, from Trillia Newbell encouraging women, Eric Mason challenging husbands and fathers, to Matt Capps inspiring pastors to be intentional with their summer plans.
“3 essentials in healthy kids and student ministries,” by Eric Geiger

"Free stuff Fridays," by Tim Challies
We love giveaways and free stuff. Today Challies has a great prize package that includes one of our latest book releases, Touch Topics: Biblical Answers to 25 Challenging Questions by Sam Storms
“The difference between original autographs and original texts,” by Michael J. Kruger
The Gospel Coalition

With this post, Kruger, a professor of New Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary, provides a thorough response of why we can be confident that we have the actual Bible based upon the role of the autographs and the manuscripts.
“New eBook: Piper celebrates the influence of Lewis,” by Jonathan Parnell
