Recommended Reading: June 13-19

Jesus CrossIf you have to read only one article this week, make it Kyrios Christos: The Lordship of Jesus Christ Today by Michael Bird.

EDITORIAL NOTE: I have been informed that this link is no longer working. It appears to be an issue on Harvard’s end. I’ve contacted Michael Bird (who originally provided the link), so hopefully the issue will be resolved soon.

For those of you with additional reading time on your hands, consider the following selections below, gleaned from around the internet as it rained this week in Saint Louis. As always, if you think there is something else I should be reading or should have included, let me know in the comments section below.
