After taking a season off through an extremely busy summer filled with travel, speaking engagements, and other responsibilities—the DBG Spotlight is back. It is my desire during these posts to highlight good articles in various different lanes (from ministry and pastoral related articles to the general article for the entire church). I hope you enjoy.

Susie — Tim Challies provides a helpful review of my friend Ray Rhode’s new book on the wife of Charles Spurgeon. You will want to read both the review and the book!
Is Christ Enough? Brief Thoughts on Corporate Representation — “To summarize: one danger of the corporate apology is that it puts a given individual in a position that he or she cannot occupy. I am not the representative of a holy nation-state. I am not the high priest of God’s people. Beyond this, I have no biblical summons to make atonement for sin. I do not apologize for the sins of all people from Maine (including, but not limited to, a love for Moxie).”
Puritan Documentary Video — Joel Beeke points to the full Puritan Documentary trailer. This is one documentary you will want to get your hands on.

If God desires all to be saved then why aren’t they? (in 500 words) — This is a helpful read that causes you to think through the issues of God’s will regarding the salvation of sinners.
Why Does John Piper Journal? — “God does not require any of us to keep a journal. But journaling may help some of us see Christ, love Christ, and become like Christ.”
