A La Carte (10/7)

A La Carte Collection cover image

I spent yesterday afternoon making some edits to my book. So far it’s been easy enough and three chapters are just about ready to go (which means they are ready to be sent through to the next stage of editing in which they’ll be checked for syntax, spelling, grammar, style and all the rest). Here’s hoping that the rest of the book goes just as smoothly!

Battlescape – The US military site has an interesting encapsulation of the actions of a recent Medal of Honor recipient. “Staff Sgt. Robert J. Miller was a weapons sergeant with Special Forces Operational Detachment Alpha 3312, Special Operations Task Force-33, Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force-Afghanistan, when he was killed in Gowardesh, Afghanistan, in a battle with enemy forces using small arms fire and rocket-propelled grenades.”

Losing Faith in Climate Change – This infographic seeks to show how Americans are losing faith in climate change.

The Ethics of In Vitro – Denny Burk links to a couple of articles that aptly summarize some of the pressing issues related to in vitro fertilization. He quotes Russell Moore who says “IVF is a lawless, dangerous, unregulated, multibillion dollar industry.”

Talking Politics – Trevin Wax talks politics with Joe Carter and Matthew Lee Anderson. They talk “about the current political climate and what role evangelicals are playing in the upcoming mid-term elections.”

What Your Greek Teacher Didn’t Tell You – Here is an interesting post with 13 things your Greek teacher didn’t tell you about the Greek language. (HT:JT)

Late Modern or Post Modern? – Tim Keller writes about these two terms and tells why postmodern isn’t the best terminology.

Do I Have to Have Sex With My Spouse? – Winston Smith answers this question in a short video from CCEF: Am I obligated to have sex whenever my spouse asks?

In God’s sight there are two men–Adam and Jesus Christ–and these two men have all other men hanging at their girdle strings.
