Here are a few links to help get your day started. Those who like free stuff will particularly enjoy this, I suppose…

Free from ChristianAudio – This month’s free download from ChristianAudio is Calvin Stapert’s Handel’s Messiah. It’s a good one to listen to before you head to a performance of Messiah this month.

Free December Wallpaper – Now that you got that free audio book, you can also get some free wallpaper to pretty up your computer.

Free D.A. Carson Video – In February 2009, Don Carson presented a 14-part seminar entitled “The God Who Is There” at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis. The video for that series is now available online.

Save on Bibles – There are just 2 days left to take advantage of Westminster Book’s sale on all of their ESV Bibles.

Red Eye – If you’ve ever flown a red eye flight, you’ll be able to identify with this.

Afghanistan, November 2010 – has a roundup of amazing photos from Afghanistan.

—William Grimshaw
