A La Carte (11/7)

Here are a handful of Kindle deals from Crossway that you may want to consider.. Tony Reinke’s Lit!, an excellent book on how to read more and better, is down to $3.99.

Extreme Couponing - “For obvious reasons, the idea that you can snag hundreds of dollars worth of groceries for next to nothing has become exceptionally popular with today’s debt-ridden, budget-strapped masses. But does the ‘extreme couponing’ popularized on TV actually pay off?” TIME says it does not.

Lessons from the Election - There are tens of thousands of articles wrapping up the results of last night’s election. A good place to start will be with Al Mohler’s “Aftermath: Lessons from the 2012 Election.” You may also want to listen to this morning’s episode of The Briefing.

From Me Yesterday - Collin Hansen’s letter from himself, written before the election, is very helpful.

A Gospeled Man - “The godly man is a gospeled man. He has seen who he is in Christ, he is moved by what God has done for him in Christ. If I don’t get this part, all the rest will just be a self-salvation project, an exercise in self-righteousness.”

Controversy and Interpretation - Matthew Anderson’s look at Rachel Held Evans’ new book is long and maybe a little bit meandering at times, but he draws out some interesting points.
