New Happy Rant: Rape Culture, Daddy Blogs, and Christian Summer Camps

In this episode of the Happy Rant Ted Kluck, Ronnie Martin, and Barnabas Piper do something unusual – they take on a really serious topic, rape culture. We go on to take on a couple fun topics too, but that one serious topic was one we felt needed to be addressed.

  • Rape culture: how can a phrase like this even exist, where did it come from, and what can be done about it?
  • Why aren’t there daddy blogs the way there are mommy blogs?
  • Memories of Christian summer camp

Out first sponsor this week is Moody Publishers and the book On Pastoring: A Short Guide to Living, Leading, and Ministering as a Pastor by H.B.Charles. This is a phenomenal, grounded resource that will help anyone in ministry or who is considering ministry. It majors on the majors and minors on the minors by emphasizing relationship with God, character, and a biblical life over strategies and techniques. Charles shares many anecdotes from his own ministry, both of failure and success, to bring points home. Buy this book if you are in ministry or to encourage someone you know in ministry.

Our second, but not lesser, sponsor is NavPress. The particularly want to highlight two books by Jerry Bridges, The Blessing of Humility and his recently re-released classic The Pursuit of HolinessBoth books are rich with theology and gentleness, both reflective of their author. Pick them up, work through them slowly, digest, and benefit.
