A La Carte (1/24)

History Lives - In case you missed yesterday’s late addition to A La Carte, I’m repeating some great Kindle deals. The excellent five-volume History Lives series of church history books for kids is marked down to $2 each. This deal expires by the end of the week.

The Jobs Aren’t Coming Back - Here’s an interesting account of a conversation between Barack Obama and Steve Jobs. Jobs says that the manufacturing jobs aren’t coming back to the US and says why this has to be the case.

Marrying a Man with Porn Struggles - Russell Moore offers up a great response to this question: Should I marry a man who struggles with pornography?

Group Bible Study - This is a helpful article on effective group Bible study. “It’s six o’clock Wednesday evening. Your church’s mid-week Bible study starts in one hour but you don’t feel like going. The trouble is, you can’t think of a fresh excuse and you don’t dare to say what you, (and several others) would like to say: ‘Is this really what a Bible Study is supposed to be like?’”

Interview with Groothuis - City of God blog has an interview with Douglas Groothuis who has recently published his magnum opus, a textbook on Christian Apologetics.

Family Worship Month - I’m not one who tends to participate in things like family worship month or family worship Sunday. Neither am I one to sign declarations. But I did want to draw attention to this site, this effort, and this declaration.

Mordecai - This is a great little video. The band is playing away when a bird shows up for the concert.

The nearer men are to being sinless, the less they talk about it. —D.L. Moody
