In the publishing world: Dr. John MacArthur announced at the Shepherd's Conference yesterday that his new book, entitled Slave, will be coming out in January of 2011 from Thomas Nelson publishers. In this book, he "frame the doctrines of grace in a slave perspective." You can hear the discussion in a Q&A session between Dr. MacArthur and Dr. Rick Holland. You can download it at the Shepherd's Fellowship website for free. On the audio version that I downloaded, the discussion begins at 24:05. I look forward to this book with great anticipation.
