A La Carte (1/5)

Here are a few more Kindle deals. Do you want me to keep posting these? I know they are interesting to me and a few more, but maybe I’m just annoying everyone else! No Other Gospel by Josh Moody is $3.03, Big Truths for Young Hearts by Bruce Ware is $1.99, Saving Leonardo by Nancy Pearcey is $2.69, and How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth is down to $4.99. You sure can build a solid library on the cheap with Kindle.

On to some links:

Perils of Digital Technology - Mike Wittmer on some of the perils of living as high-tech people in a high-tech world.

Teen Mom Kills Intruder - Denny Burk: “There are some stories that you hear that you know you’ll never forget. This is one of them.” It is the story of a teenaged mom who was forced to defend herself and her baby.

Journalling Tips - “So you decided to start journalling as your new year resolution and don’t know where to start?  The following tips are things I’ve learned from several years of journalling, and while they are aimed at Christians journalling for the benefit of their spiritual walk, many of the points will apply to journalling in general.”

Child Born of Rape - “For most of her 100 years, Minka Disbrow tried to find out what became of the precious baby girl she gave up for adoption after being raped as a teen. She hoped, but never imagined, she’d see her Betty Jane again.” Quite an amazing story, this one.

Slavery-Affirming Heroes - Trevin Wax asks how we are to regard our heroes of church history who affirmed slavery. There are no easy answers for this one.
