A La Carte (10/27)

The Rules of Publishing - “Amazon.com has taught readers that they do not need bookstores. Now it is encouraging writers to cast aside their publishers. Amazon will publish 122 books this fall in an array of genres, in both physical and e-book form. It is a striking acceleration of the retailer’s fledging publishing program that will place Amazon squarely in competition with the New York houses that are also its most prominent suppliers.”

Wolf Hunt - This is pretty amazing.

I Can Do All Things - Nathan Busenitz: “In today’s post, I would like to briefly consider one of the most well-known and often-quoted verses in the New Testament. In fact, it is one of the most popular verses in American evangelical culture today.”

The Apotheosis of Steve Jobs - Gene Veith: “CNN’s religion blog asked several experts if they thought that the recently departed Steve Jobs has been turned into a secular saint.  I liked what Gary Laderman of Emory University had to say…”

Selah - Jim Hamilton doesn’t like the word “selah” being removed from the biblical text. I’d tend to agree (not that I speak with any authority!).

Faith brings a man empty to God, that he may be filled with the blessings of God. —John Calvin
