A La Carte (12/4)

A Praying Life - The Kindle edition of Paul Miller’s excellent book A Praying Life is on sale for just $1.99. I’m assuming the deal won’t last long, so you probably don’t want to dawdle!

Schreiners Display Strong Faith - Baptist Press has a story about the Schreiner family. “Tom Schreiner received news that his wife Diane was involved in a severe bicycle accident, leaving her unconscious with several broken bones and fractures and — of most urgent concern — bruising to her brain.” 

A Modern-Day Anna - I enjoyed Mary Kassian’s account of just one small moment from the recent True Woman conference.

God’s Presence - Bob Kauflin has begun a multi-part article on manufacturing, marketing and minimizing God’s presence. The first entry is well worth a read; I trust the follow-ups will as well.

Are We Playing God? - This long but interesting article at Matthias Media asks lots of questions of modern medical technology and our dedication to it. Modern medical technologies are raising many new ethical dilemmas.

Bringing Marriage Back to Earth - This article is well worth some reflection, I think. Writing for Tabletalk, Brian Tallman wonders if we’ve over-spiritualized marriage.

All of us would be wiser if we would resolve never to put people down, except on our prayer lists. —D.A. Carson
