Monergism Books – Monergism Books has a good selection of items available at 50% off for just a short time. Be sure to check out Gospel-Powered Parenting, and When People Are Big and God Is Small.

The Birth and Death of Words – “Can physicists produce insights about language that have eluded linguists and English professors?

Only once did God choose a completely sinless preacher.

—Alexander Whyte
