A La Carte (3/26)

Wrestling with an Angel - Here’s a must-read blog post for this morning. It begins this way: “One busy Saturday afternoon I was patrolling the local mall parking lot in my police cruiser. It was warm, so I had my windows down enjoying the fall air. As I drove though the lot I heard a loud piercing cry echoing like a sound bite from a horror movie.” (HT: the kerux)

Deals of the Day - At Westminster Books you can get a two-pack of great new books for just $14.99 while at Reformation Heritage Books you can get a complete different two-pack of other good books.

The Tiger Woods Bubble - Here’s an interesting article from the New York Times. “As far as professional golf is concerned, Woods cannot come back fast enough. The PGA Tour is at a critical juncture. Next year it will begin negotiating new TV contracts with CBS and NBC. In the meantime, the tour is trying to secure sponsors for 10 events in 2011 while economic conditions are not exactly favorable.” And speaking of bubbles, you may also be interested in reading about the great baseball card bubble.

Kindle App for iPad - This app could potentially change a lot of the bad things I’ve said about the iPad. It looks that, unlike the PC and Mac versions of the Kindle app, this will allow you to take notes and add highlights to text. But we still need to see if Apple will permit it.

A People of the App? - Jared Bridges: “This past Sunday, I did something generally considered verboten  in conservative evangelical circles.I went to church without my Bible.”

Endtimes Timeline Animation - David Murray has released three helpful animations of different eschatalogical systems: Amillennial Timeline, Postmillennial Timeline and Premillennial Timeline.
