Wednesday October 4, 2006

Personal: Things are slowly returning to normal around here, so A La Carte is returning. Sorry that I was forced to miss a couple of days!

Review: “The Resurgence” has featured an excellent review of John and Stasi Eldredge’s “Captivating.” “The Eldredges seem to assume that if God does not need us, he does not really love us.

Men: BBC News reports on the loss of two male Australian icons and the loss of men’s men. “Australian mates and good blokes have been replaced by nervous wrecks, metrosexual knobs and toss-bags.”
