Is Public Schooling an Option?Answers magazine asked Al Mohler to answer this question: Should Christian parents send their children to the public schools? He provides a careful and helpful answer that looks to past, present and future.

A Short Life of Jonathan Edwards – This month’s free audiobook from ChristianAudio is George Marsden’s A Short Life of Jonathan Edwards.

The Cosmic Battle – “Cosmic combat occurs most Friday mornings at a coffee shop a few blocks from my home. If you happen to be ordering your mocha latte during this episode of intergalactic warfare, you might not even notice. … At the nexus of the battle, there is only a man of not-quite-average height in one chair, a bubbly brown-haired girl in another, and a Bible and a couple of ceramic mugs on the table between them.”

Art, Nakedness, and Redemption – The Christian Pundit writes about art and nakedness and whether or not we should condone nudity in art (whether on the screen, the page or the canvas). I quite like the argument here.

A Piece of My Heart Today – Raechel Myers shares a difficult but hope-filled article drawn from real life.

Jasmine’s Victory – “God saved her and her baby from abortion using local pro-life workers in Orlando working together as a team with True Life Choice and sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”

If I love to be loved more than to love, to be served more than to serve, then I know nothing of Calvary love.

—Amy Carmichael

    Young Man, Don’t Even Make that First Sports Bet

    It’s impossible to avoid the advertising and impossible to miss the claims. Sports are great, they say, but do you know what makes them even better? Adding a little wager.

    It’s Not a Life of Ease
