A La Carte (10/23)

Climate Revolt
I found this story very interesting. “To prevent a financial crisis from turning into an economic calamity, the European Union has pulled the emergency brake on green policies.” So just how important are green policies if they are the first thing to go in times of crisis?


Why Women Are Weaker Than Men
Gerald Hiestand: “Too often the complementarian/egalitarian debate gets lost in a discussion about what should be, rather than embracing what is. Peter is not saying that women should be vulnerable before men; he is saying that they are. There is nothing that we can do to change this reality.”


Civics 101
“Every four years, the world looks with bafflement at the United States as the country goes through its curious process of electing its President. Truth be told, the system is far from obvious, and remains misunderstood and controversial even within the U.S.A. A brief primer on how it all works.”


Financial Armageddon
I should have seen this coming. John Hagee takes on the financial and global economic downturn in his new book Financial Armageddon. Hagee claims to have written it in less than three weeks. He also offers advice about how people can protect their personal finances and claims many of the current events were “spelled out in stunning detail by prophetic writings penned more than two thousand years ago.”


Vocation Plans
“A hundred years ago young adults did not have anywhere near the mind-boggling and almost debilitating number of options available today. In general, sons took on the line of work of their fathers, and girls adopted whatever domestic, social, and vocational roles their mothers held. It wasn’t so much about “finding your calling” as it was about your calling finding you.”


The Prodigal God
Tim Keller writes about his new book (due next week–I should have a review shortly).

    There is much to love and appreciate about our God, much for which we ought to give him praise and thanks. One of the attributes we may consider too seldom is his goodness, and as an aspect or component of his goodness, his kindness. And that is the subject of
