The Top 10 on Transforming Grace (2008-09)

This time last year I posted the top 10 posts of the year.  Like this time last year I’ll take a break from blogging. I’m going back to the CPAS youth summer camp at Edgehill school in Devon then having a rest. I’ve now blogged for about a year and a half, here’s what people have been reading in the past year (the figure in brackets is last year’s rank):

1.  (8)  13 Christian personality types – by far the most popular post on this blog, it looks at what happens when Christians lack one of faith, love, obedience or knowledge of Christ.

2. (2) 8 biblical personality types – the same place as last year, the development of biblical EQ seems popular

3. (5)  8 ways to attain a pure heart – I love Thomas Watson’s advice on developing a pure heart.

4.  (1)  The covenant of grace, not works, between God and Adam – knocked off the top spot, the garden covenant remains a hot topic.

5.  (4)  The doctrine of adoption – still high on the list, it is a blessing to know what it means to be a child of God through faith in Christ.

6.  (7)  Challenging the homogenous church growth principle – This continues to draw attention.  A homogenous church in a multi-cultural community is probably not cross-centred.

7. (-) Cross-Centered 7-week “lent” course. Here I posted my study group notes on C.J. Mahaney’s really helpful book.

8. (-) Eternal torment and torture, annihilation or death-row and execution? This post considers what God meant when he said “you shall surely die” in the Garden of Eden.

9. (-) 9 habits of highly effective churches The main points from George Barna’s helpful book on how to make church effective but not necessarily “successful”.

10. (-) The watchtower and blood transfusions.  I’m glad if this post is of any help to a Jehovah’s Witness who wants to think about the Jerusalem Council and what it means for us today.

And my favourite this year?  Christ the Prophet, High Priest and King.

Have a happy holiday.
