A La Carte (12/30)

Friday December 30, 2005

Reviews: Suddenly Barna’s book Revolution is back in the news. Reformation21 is discussing it and Justin Taylor points to a review by Sam Storms. Chris Treat also reviews it.

Theology: Michael Haykin says that it is appropriate to laugh at Barna and his ecclesiological proposal.

Nature: Snopes confirms the truth of a story claiming that “a baby-hippopotamus that survived the tsumani waves on the Kenyan coast has formed a strong bond with a giant male century-old tortoise, in an animal facility in the port city of Mombasa.”

Entertainment: The New York Daily News lists the worst television shows of 2005. I am proud to say that I did not see any of them (with the exception of a very few moments of that awful Britney Spears one).
