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. I am the pastor for discipleship at our church and I plan to recommend (if only I could require!) this book to every parent in our congregation. I will especially be looking for opportunities to use this to train new and young parents.”

Groothuis on Social Media – Douglas Groothuis has posted a recent contribution from The Christian Research Journal. He writes about the world of social media.

Earth From Above – Another great photo essay, this one showing pictures of earth from above (as you may have guessed).

The United Kingdom Explained – This short video tries to make sense of the United Kingdom. It’s more interesting than it sounds.
