A La Carte (8/12)

Protect the Little Ones - John Knight: “Prenatal tests are not the problem. The problem is the bias of our culture against the lives of little ones born with Down syndrome. Our culture does not think that these littles ones should be given the opportunity to live.”

Pregnancy Reduction - Denny Burk writes about pregnancy reduction. “In case you have never heard the term, here’s what pregnancy reduction is in a nutshell.

Christianity and the Crusades - Here are a couple of different answers to this question: Was Christianity responsible for the Crusades?

Respond to Every Email? - Should you respond to every email? Several experts offer their take.

The Truck Driver - This article may descend into a bit of melodrama, but it still has some good things to say. “Let me tell you a little about the truck driver you just flipped off because he was passing another truck, and you had to cancel the cruise control and slow down until he completed the pass and moved back over.”

God in Moby Dick - R.C. Sproul’s contribution to this month’s Tabletalk is an interesting one. “It seems that every time a writer picks up a pen or turns on his word processor to compose a literary work of fiction, deep in his bosom resides the hope that somehow he will create the Great American Novel. Too late. That feat has already been accomplished and is as far out of reach for new novelists as is Joe DiMaggio’s fifty-six-game hitting streak or Pete Rose’s record of cumulative career hits for a rookie baseball player.”

Till men have faith in Christ, their best services are but glorious sins. —Thomas Brooks
