A La Carte (6/20)

Friday June 20, 2008 Critiquing My Review
Someone has seen fit to post a seven-part video review of my review of The Shack. You can find it all on YouTube. (And, in case you’re wondering, he mispronounces my name every time).
The Ramshackle Shack
And speaking of The Shack, Tom Neven has a good article about it over at Boundless. “Young’s intentions are good. He wants to introduce readers to a loving God who was willing to sacrifice his own Son to save us from our sins. But all heresies begin with misconstruing the nature of God.”

A Chilling Precedent
Dr. Mohler writes about a chilling court case up here in Canada. “The ruling is so out of bounds that the news story sounds like a parody — but it isn’t. A Canadian judge ruled that a 12-year-old girl was ‘excessively’ punished when her father told her she could not go on a school camping trip because she had broken rules for use of the Internet.”
