Here are a few ebook deals you may want to take advantage of. Sex and the Supremacy of Christ by John Piper is available for $2.99; Disciplines of a Godly Man by Kent Hughes is available for $3.99. Monergism has a free ebook from Steve Hays that answers common questions from skeptics.
Real Marriage - Denny Burk has just published an excellent (and lengthy) review of Real Marriage. He goes into more detail than I did in both specific praises and criticisms. His pastoral concerns are particularly worth noting, I think.
The Book of Mary - Aimee Byrd: “Okay. So, Cruciform Press just did something pretty radical. They have an eBook that you can download from their website for just 99 cents through January 3rd.

Prompted by His Word - Josh Harris has a great little quote from Calvin.
Sexual Confusion and the Gospel - In a few weeks I will be speaking at a conference in Indiana. The conference title is “Sexual Confusion and the Gospel.” If you’re in the area, I’d love to see you there!

The Blog Format - Bloggers may be interested in this article which talks about the new version of HTML changing the whole blogging paradigm.
