Books: Monergism Books is having a moving sale. They have lots of great books, Bibles and DVDs available at low prices.

Du Jour: A reader sent me a link to the site of a young Christian woman who could use our prayers. “Bonnie has a mitochondrial cytopathy (a multi organ failure disease), which was diagnosed in Boston in January 2006 and has caused either failure or damage to many of her organs.”

That whole confession was merely a ruse to help him avoid paying for his other crimes.

Personal: Fall must be upon us. When I went out for my walk this morning, the thermometer was reading a mere 7 degrees (Celsius). When I got back it was down to 6 degrees. It’s all downhill from here!

    This week the blog is sponsored by Help The Persecuted. “Can I have a Bible?” The guard studied Qasem. “If you paint the walls of every cell in this prison, I’ll get you a Bible.” “Where is the paint?” And so Qasem, enduring what would ultimately be a three-year sentence for running house churches throughout…

  • Tell Me

    Why Didn’t You Tell Me?

    If you have spent any time at all on YouTube, you have probably seen videos of people hearing for the first time or people seeing color for the first time—videos of people who, through the miracles of modern science, have senses restored that had either been missing altogether or that had become dull through illness…
