Every week Zondervan has me choose one book to go on sale, and this week I chose Bound Together by Chris Brauns ($2.99). Also consider Eighty Twenty Eight by Ian & Larissa Murphy ($2.99) and Managing God’s Money by Randy Alcorn ($4.46).
Joan or John? - Russell Moore takes on a difficult pastoral situation. Joan tells you that when she was 20 she began the process of “transitioning” from life as a man to life as a woman. She underwent extensive hormone therapy, followed by extensive plastic surgery—including so-called “gender reassignment surgery.” She’s lived for the past 30 years—physically and socially—as a woman.
Thinking Like a Non-Musician - I know I link to a lot of articles by Jamie Brown, but he just has a way of saying helpful things. Here he writes about the value of musicians trying to think like non-musicians.

Christians do not create truth. The Truth creates the Christian. —William Farley
