A La Carte (6/3)

Ecological Catastrophe - Russell Moore writes about the BP oil disaster in an article titled “Ecological Catastrophe and the Uneasy Evangelical Conscience.”

Maps that Changed the World - “From the USSR’s Be On Guard! map in 1921 to Google Earth, a new exhibition at the British Library charts the extraordinary documents that transformed the way we view the globe forever.”

Paul Johnson on Winston Churchill - In his new biography of Churchill, Paul Johnson proposes five take-aways from the British leader’s life. Ray Ortlund summarizes them. Love him or hate him, you’ve got to know that Churchill lived a life we can all learn from.

Life - I’ve been waiting for a long time for David Attenborough’s Life to release. And it’s finally here. “This enthralling BBC series examines ‘the lengths living beings go to to stay alive,’ in the words of Sir David Attenborough.” Be sure to get the BBC version if at all possible since Oprah narrates the Discovery version (and she’s no Attenborough).
