Debates – Though I haven’t been able to listen to them yet, I’ve heard that these debates are interesting. In the first Edgar Andrews debates atheist Robert Stovold on the question ‘What created the universe?’ while in the second he tangles with Lewis Wolpert, Emeritus Professor of Biology at University College London and Vice President of the British Humanist Association.

What I’ve Learned from Cancer – This needs to come with a language warning. It’s a pensive and sad and still-rebellious article from Christopher Hitchens as he battles cancer.

Pearl Harbour – These are some moving photos from the 70th anniversary of Pearl Harbour.

Defusing an Argument – Paul Tautges shares “some transition sentences that may help you when you’re attempting to resolve conflicts with your wife. The list may be personalized according to the need of the moment (Eph 4:29).” They should print these on a wallet-sized card!

A Tale of Two Grandfathers – I admit to bias, but I really enjoyed this article about 2 of my great grandfathers and the differences between them (not to mention the ultimate spiritual impact on my own life).

Adoption gives us the privilege of sons, regeneration the nature of sons.

—Stephen Charnock

  • Do Not Envy the Wicked

    Do You Envy the Wicked?
