A La Carte (3/28)

This is the week I will have to choose the topic of my next book. Odd, isn’t it? One book releases (this Friday!) and at the same time I need to figure out what the next one will be about. The funny thing is that I really have very few ideas at the moment. So if you know the book I need to write next, do tell me!

A War By Any Name – An interesting column from the New York Times. “But by any name or euphemism, the United States has gone to war, and there are questions that the president must answer. Here are the four biggest one…”

What Is HeresyHeresy is often used but seldom defined. Here Ian Clary provides some of Michael Haykin’s thoughts on the word and its right definition.

Preaching Hangover – Here’s one for preachers. “You may call it something different, but every pastor knows about it. It is the mental, emotional, and spiritual crash that takes place the next day (Monday) as a result of pouring your heart and soul out in the proclamation of God’s Word to God’s people the day before. Personally, it has affectionately become known as, ‘The Preaching Hangover.’ There is no easy remedy, medication, or quick fix that can prevent it. There are, however, several practical efforts I make every Monday that are tremendously helpful to fight through the fog.”

The Hobbit Begins – Finally.

RIM – This article gets progressively less interesting, but the early parts are quite useful as the writer discusses why RIM is losing market share against Apple in the smartphone wars.

Blogging Theologically – I’m a relative newcomer to Aaron Armstrong’s blog “Blogging Theologically.” I want to commend it to you. It’s not often that I find a guy willing to put in as much effort as Aaron…or a guy who has so many interesting things to say.

My grand point in preaching is to break the hard heart, and to heal the broken one.

—John Newton

    Redeeming Sex in Marriage

    Surely few things in this world are more mysterious than sex. Surely few things give such clear evidence that there must be more to them than the sum of their parts. On the one level, sex is a simple biological function that exists to populate the earth with human beings. On the other level, it…
