State of the Bible 2012 - “The good news about the Good Book is that it’s still the No. 1 seller of all time, with an estimated 6 billion copies sold. The not-so-good news though, according to a new survey by The American Bible Society, is that it’s lost a bit of its prominence in affecting people’s lives.”
Character, Influence - Here’s a good quote—food for thought—from Douglas Groothuis.
Where Were the African-Americans? - A few days ago David Murray asked where the African Americans were at T4G. Thabiti Anyabwile pens a helpful response.
Spring JBMW - The spring edition of the Journal for Biblical Manhood and Womanhood is now available. Be sure to check out the review of Mark Driscoll’s Real Marriage. I think it may prove the definitive critical review.
Where Kindles Are Sold - It’s interesting that ebooks are reaching different kinds of readers than traditional books. “It turns out all of our preconceived notions about e-reader adoption was wrong. When you dig into the data about where Kindles are actually bought and sold, the most ‘cosmopolitan’ cities in America are soundly beaten by mid-sized cities in the Midwest and South.”
There is nothing that human pride resents so much as to be rebuked. —G.B. Duncan
