An Increase in Reading – “A fifth of American adults have read an electronic version of a book in the last year, a trend that is fueling a renewed love of reading, according to a new survey. The portion of e-book readers among all American adults has increased to 21 percent from 17 percent between December and February, due in large part to a boom in tablet and e-reader sales this past holiday season.”

A Passion for the Gospel – I enjoyed reading this quick account of the faith of Bubba Watson, the winner of the Masters Tournament.

You and You – Bill Mounce: “I wish modern English had a different form for “you” plural. It would solve some sticky translation problems. So until then, I guess we all have to learn some Greek.”

9 World-Tilting Truths – Trevin Wax looks to a recent book and shares 9 world-tilting truths that are “refreshingly God-centered (thus the world-tilting image) and offers a robust yet accessible look at major biblical truths.”

4 Thoughts for T4G – Kevin DeYoung offers four thoughts for those of us who are at Together for the Gospel. Darryl Dash offers some thoughts for those who aren’t able to be here.

The Secret Life of Plankton – They exist in the trillions and are at the very bottom of the food chain.

Prayer is not so much an act as it is an attitude—an attitude of dependency, dependency upon God.

—A.W. Pink
