A La Carte (5/22)

Dan Brown’s America
An interesting Op-Ed from the NY Times. “It isn’t just that he knows how to keep the pages turning. That’s what it takes to sell a million novels. But if you want to sell a 100 million, you need to preach as well as entertain — to present a fiction that can be read as fact, and that promises to unlock the secrets of history, the universe and God along the way.”
An Interview with Max McLean
JT interviews Max McLean, focusing on his new one-man show which is simply a presentation of the Gospel of Mark.
God Made This Man Rich
Canada’s The Globe and Mail pens an article about William Young. “Young thinks a big part of the novel’s appeal derives from it not being explicitly Christian. There’s little or no Scripture in it. The novel, to Young’s mind, ‘has given to people a language to have a conversation about God, evil, suffering and healing. … a language they didn’t have before because all the language before has been very religious, loaded with religious land mines and everything else.’”
A Divine and Supernatural Light
This blog is dedicated to the life, works and legacy of Jonathan Edwards. Sounds like a good bookmark for those who love Edwards…
