Weekend A La Carte (3/17)

But God… - Here’s another Kindle deal with taking: Casey Lute’s book But God… (published by Cruciform Press) has been marked down to $0.99.

Christians and Mixed Martial Arts - Owen Strachan: “I have spoken out fairly strongly MMA in the past, and my basic convictions about the sport haven’t changed. Christians should encourage the development of physical courage and ability in young men, yes. They should reject pacificism, and they should encourage boys to be adventurous and tough. But I don’t think that we should tie courage to unnecessary violence.”

Rest in Print - Al Mohler eulogizes the Encylopedia Britannica. “And then they were no more. Encyclopaedia Britannica Inc. announced Tuesday that it would no longer offer its venerable reference set in a printed edition. Western Civilization just took another hard blow to the chin.”

St. Patrick - Since everyone is talking about him today, you may as well learn what he was all about.

Spiritual Depression - Granted Ministries is offering a free study guide for Martyn Lloyd-Jones’ book Spiritual Depression.

God takes away the world, that the heart may cleave more to Him in sincerity. —Thomas Watson
