Modest - My book Modest: Men and Women Clothed in the Gospel is on sale at just $2.99 in the Kindle edition. Also, Ligonier has put Douglas Bond’s The Mighty Weakness of John Calvin.

The Great Election Tragedy - “The tragedy of the 2012 election is that in this land of the free and home of the brave, many people were not allowed to vote. Their voices were silenced. Their votes were not cast. Their opinions not expressed.”

To know the will of God is the greatest knowledge! To do the will of God is the greatest achievement! —George Truett
