A La Carte (10/6)

The Bible for Bloggers – Bryan Chapell has put together a long essay on behaving ourselves online. “What biblical principles should guide Christian bloggers? I am increasingly thinking about this question because maintaining the mission and reputation of the institution I lead increasingly requires me to respond quickly and frequently to questions, assertions, and criticisms from the unjuried world of the blogosphere.”

End Game – If you’re looking for a long read for the weekend, check out this article; it’s fascinating on several different levels. “Curt Schilling set out to build the greatest video-game company the world had ever seen, and to get rich — Bill Gates rich — doing it. Instead, the whole thing exploded in his face. Drawing on exclusive interviews with the Red Sox legend and his former employees, Jason Schwartz takes us inside the chaos, arrogance, and mistakes that led to the destruction of 38 Studios and the loss of $75 million in taxpayer money.”

Glimpses of Grace – Gloria Furman finds glimpses of grace in homemaking. “When I’m dishing up a hefty serving of the bread of anxious toil it’s helpful to remember God’s mercy and faithfulness. This kind of forgetfulness seems like an innocent and passive thing. But most times I forget God’s faithfulness it’s because I’m fixated on a promise that the world has offered to me.”

Marriage Bliss – Or Not – There are idealistic looks at marriage, and then there are realistic ones. This article falls squarely in the second category. It will make you want to read The Meaning of Marriage.

Two other bloggers recently interviewed me. Mike Leake asked me about ten years of blogging and Frank Viola asked me about Christians and technology.

Christ is much more powerful to save, than Adam was to destroy.

—John Calvin
