A La Carte is running a little bit late today because I was recording a podcast. Busy day! Stay tuned a few minutes from now and I’ll also be posting an interview with John MacArthur.

Don’t Call it a Comeback – The Jude 3 Project has the first review I’ve seen of the book I contributed to. “Don’t Call it a Comeback is a uniquely accessible and entertaining theology text. That’s right, it is probably the theology text with the overall coolest title in the history of Christian publishing!”

Behind the Wheel – Andree Seu: “My son who lives in the heart of Philly says it’s no good now with everybody packing a cell phone and moving their lips as they walk down the street alone: ‘You can’t tell who the crazies are anymore.’”

Custom Domain Suffixes – This article deals with a new development on the Web and one that actually has very far-reaching implications. “The pillar of the basic Web address – the trusty .com domain – is about to face vast new competition that will dramatically transform the Web as we know it. New Web sites, with more subject-specific, sometimes controversial suffixes, will soon populate the online galaxy, such as .eco, .love, .god, .sport, .gay or .kurd.”

A New Kind of False Intimacy – This blogger suggests that Facebook offers us a new kind of false intimacy.

Please Don’t Use Google! – Andy Unedited wants writers to stop using Google. “Why should writers and speakers stop using Google as a supposed source of statistical authority? Much like using dictionary definitions…” You’ll have to click the link to read his reasons.

The seven ages of man: spills, drills, thrills, bills, ills, pills, wills.

    Can I confess something to you? There’s one thing Aileen does that really bugs me. We will be talking together and enjoying one another’s company. But then, as we chat, I’ll hear the telltale buzz of her phone. And I can tell that I’ve lost her. I can see it in the look on her…

    A Difference-Making Ministry for Any Christian

    The experience of preaching is very different from the front than from the back, when facing the congregation than when facing the preacher. The congregation faces one man who is doing his utmost to be engaging, to hold their attention, and to apply truths that will impact their hearts and transform their lives.
