I’m on the way to South Carolina to speak at one of the Psalm 119 conferences on discernment. I’m looking forward to spend time with guys like Todd Friel and Trevin Wax. And of course, sharing a couple of messages on why to be discerning and how to be discerning well.

The Prince of Wales and John 14 – “Prince Charles has read from John chapter 14 as part of an online version of the King James Bible. The idea is the brainchild of the King James Bible Trust and is the latest event to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the translation.”

Kids and the Bible – Erik writes about how he helps his children read and understand the Bible.

iPad 2 – Daring Fireball, the source for Apple news and reviews, gives his take on the iPad 2.

—R.A. Torrey

    This week the blog is sponsored by Matthias Media. Does your evangelistic passion match the New Testament call to proclaim Christ’s name to all people?
