A La Carte (5/26)

Mark Twain to Reveal All - “Exactly a century after rumours of his death turned out to be entirely accurate, one of Mark Twain’s dying wishes is at last coming true: an extensive, outspoken and revelatory autobiography which he devoted the last decade of his life to writing is finally going to be published.” (HT:Phil Johnson)

Eternal Perspectives Ministries - Randy Alcorn and his Eternal Perspectives Ministries have a nice new web site. You’ll want to check it out at epm.org.

A Primer on Roman Catholicism - Over at the Ligonier blog we are serializing a booklet by John Gerstner in which he explains Roman Catholic theology, focusing on the issue of justification. It is a good and helpful series to begin to understand the key differences.

A Matter of Trust - This article explains a couple of the ways that Google collects data about you. And this one tells you why you shouldn’t trust Facebook’s recent “apology.” I know I’ve been posting a fair number of this kind of link lately, but privacy is quickly becoming one of the most important online issues and I think it’s worth knowing about some of the collection points of your personal information.
