A La Carte (5/30)

Female Beauty Matters - Mary Kassian weighs in on what I wrote last week about women and physical beauty. She says it better than I did and from a strong biblical standpoint. “In my opinion, the answer to the conundrum surrounding the discussion about female beauty is not to diminish or deny its importance, but to exalt and embrace the all-surpassing beauty to which it points.”
A Ritual of Remembrance - “Every half hour, a new sentinel guards the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery with one mission: to seek perfection in remembrance.”
Do What Your Heart Tells You - It’s not good counsel, that. “This sounds so simple and liberating. It’s tempting to believe. Until you consider that your heart has sociopathic tendencies.”
The Case Against the Em Dash - It’s been a while since I’ve had a good link here for the grammar (or punctuation) geeks. I admit, I use the em dash too often—it’s a bad habit, I guess.
Childhood Hero - Conrad Mbewe writes a tribute to his childhood hero. (Don’t let the second-to-last paragraph, which deals with a disputable matter, distract from a sound article).
Monergism Deals - Monergism is the first to offer a good discount on Iain Murray’s new biography of John MacArthur.
Lightroom - Meanwhile Amazon has Adobe Lightroom on sale. It’s a great bit of software if you are into photography and today only it’s available at a really good price.
True and Better - This is good stuff from Tim Keller.
No sinner was ever saved by giving his heart to God. We are not saved by our giving, we are saved by God’s giving. —A.W. Pink
