A La Carte (1/7)

Here is a slightly abbreviated “the last two days were a little less organized than I had thought they would be” edition of A La Carte.

God’s Technology - My friend Chris Larson did an interview with my friend David Murray on the subject of technology. Did you get all that?

The Heart of Fasting - A couple of people have asked me recently about fasting. It turns out that John MacArthur is beginning a series on that very topic.

Family-Friendly Films - “With the exception of Christopher Nolan’s psychological thriller ‘Inception,’ the top-grossing films of 2010 were all aimed squarely at families.” Let’s hope that the studios are paying attention!

Letters to a Young Calvinist - I quite enjoyed Wes Bredenhof’s review of the book Letters to a Young Calvinist. He does a good job of addressing some of the book’s weaknesses.

reFocus - Here’s a conference I’m excited to be going to next month. If you’re anywhere near Vancouver you may want to check it out.

Apple’s App Store - Here’s a list of some of the best items available in Apple’s new Mac App Store.

One of the signs that you may not grasp the unique, radical nature of the gospel is that you are certain that you do. —Tim Keller
