A La Carte (4/15)

Byron Yawn’s excellent book What Every Man Wishes His Father Had Told Him is just $2.51 on Kindle. (You can see my review of it here.) There are lots of other deals on the Really Big List of Kindle Deals that I shared last week, but quite a few of them will be expiring soon.

Myths & Misperceptions About Suicide - Paul Tautges shares a guest blog post, saying “There are many myths and misperceptions about suicide that hinder us from dealing effectively with suicidal persons. Here are some of them, with brief comments…”

Kim Jong Un - We’re all trying to figure out Kim Jong Un. This profile from The Washington Post is quite an interesting one.

To the Innocent Victims - I appreciated this post, written in memory of the victims of Dr. Kermit Gosnell. Lest we forget the victims amidst all the horror. “We do not know how many thousands of you there are; nor do we know the names God has now given you. But what we do know is that your lives on this earth were far too short, that you deserved better than you got - and today, we want you to know this: we remember you.”

She Gets It - An interesting take on the news from Ryan Gold: “What if I told you a former professional beach volleyball player/fitness model and her world-class surfer dude husband resemble more of a biblical marriage than many evangelical Christians.”

Piper on Regrets and Retirement - Collin Hansen sat down with John Piper to ask about his retirement and ministry regrets.

A 100-Year-Old Man of God - Randy Alcorn wants you to introduce you to 100-Year-Old Walter Jespersen. Alcorn says he wants to be Walter when he grows up.

I believe Satan to exist for two reasons: first, the Bible says so; and second, I’ve done business with him. —D.L. Moody
