The price of The Next Story ebook has fallen to $8.99. Just as promised, enough people pre-ordered it to get the price to drop. If we get another 200 pre-orders, the price will fall again (and everyone who pre-ordered will be charged this lower price). So please, if you intend to buy it, buy it now and save everyone some money!

Hymns That Keep on Going – An article from CT. “There are many ways to identify the most lasting or best loved hymns among American Protestants. But what would we find by looking at all 28 hymnals published by mainline Protestant denominations from the late 1800s to the present?

Free eBook – Crossway is giving away the ebook version of Steve Monsma’s Healing for a Broken World: Perspectives on Public Policy.

Breaking the Bread Code – Information you need. Well, not really, but it’s good to know.

I’m Reading a Book – Bizarre. But strangely amusing. (HT)

One proof of the inspiration of the Bible is that it has withstood so much poor preaching.
