PURITANS FREE ONLINE — Regent College and Carey Theological College, both in western Canada, have merged their respective collections by Puritan authors, now housed together at the John Richard Allen Library in Vancouver, B.C. The 80 combined titles came mostly from the digitized personal library of Dr. J. I. Packer. For list of books included, Puritan authors, and links to read this online collection, go to: allisonlibrary.regent-college.edu/


JOHN POINTS US TO EAGLES — God’s children, whether complete strangers or closest friends, regularly encourage each other. The following thoughts from gracEmail subscriber John Miller’s email for next Monday illustrate my point. You can request John’s complete devotional from him at: barkley3@windstream.net .

John writes: “As I approach the end of this life, my limitations grow daily . . . As my body weakens, my heart rejoices as I long for what we will be. We will be given new bodies and . . . inhabit a new earth . . . Frailties and weaknesses . . . will be replaced by indescribable freedom. We will be transformed into what we were always meant to be. So don’t let the trials of today discourage you . . . (Isaiah 40:31) . . . Eagles will have nothing on us. — John Miller


TALBOT SONGS — More than 40 years, Sara Faye and I were blessed by the inspired music of a Catholic charismatic singer named John Michael Talbot, never imagining that nearly a half-century later he and his wife Viola would be among our personal friends. Much of JMT’s work is now available on youtube (one wonderful example is “I am the Resurrection” (go to: www.youtube.com/ ). Be sure to check out John Michael’s own website at: www.johnmichaeltalbot.com — where you can order DVD’s, albums, and books.
