Minibook Blowout – New Growth Press (a.k.a. CCEF) has put all of their minibooks on sale for a week only. You can buy the 5-book sets for just $10.

Google Art Project – In case you haven’t seen it before, well, this is well worth browsing through.

Chicago Blizzard – These are amazing photographs of the blizzard that buried Chicago.

Intentional Parenting – Here is a review of the latest book from Cruciform Press: Intentional Parenting. “This book is a fantastic introduction to gospel-centered family discipleship.
