A La Carte (2/18)

I will cede to the wishes of my readership (at least for the time being) and return to the traditional A La Carte format.


Christianity and McLarenism
Kevin DeYoung provides a lengthy smack-down of Brian McLaren and his latest book.


The Lordship of the Five Love Languages
Justin Taylor provides a summary of David Powlison’s powerful critique of Gary Chapman’s Five Love Languages franchise of books.


Did I Get Married Too Young
An op-ed in the Wall Street Journal discusses marrying young and dispels some of the more insidious statistical lies about marrying early. “Did I get married too young? I may not have the freedom to globetrot at my own leisure or to carouse at a bar late into the night. But when I step into our 500-square-foot one-bedroom apartment, warmly lighted and smelling of fresh flowers and baked bread, I do have the freedom to kiss my beautiful wife and best friend–the woman I pledged to always love and cherish, and to raise a family with. I have no regrets. “


Robert Morrison Project
This looks like a very interesting project. “The Robert Morrison Project is a non-profit, non-denominational organization dedicated to legally translating and publishing reformed literature in China and other South East Asian countries. Our aim is to focus on areas of the world where the church faces great hardship and often has no access to quality Christian literature.”


Chris Coghlan
I love reading articles like this one at MLB.com. Joe Frisaro writes about the faith of Marlins player Chris Coghlan, a committed Christian.

    The Way You Walk

    You can tell a lot about people by the way they walk, can’t you? You can tell a lot about their physical health, their emotional state, and perhaps even their spiritual condition. You can often tell at a glance whether they are healthy or ill, joyful or sorrowful, delighting or despondent. Consider a company of…

    The Least of My Children’s Accomplishments

    I know what it is to be a father and to take pride in the achievements of my children. I had not been a father for long when I learned that the least of my children’s accomplishments by far outshines the greatest of my own. Their smallest victory generates more delight than my largest and…
