The Next Story – I believe this is the last day you can order The Next Story ebook at the heavily discounted price. So don’t dawdle. While we’re on the subject, David Murray has made up a really interesting post with some of his reflections on the book, including questions he’s been asking himself while reading it.

Victory in Disgrace – This is a powerful testimony to God’s healing grace.

Infographics – A small collection: Languages that are tough to learn for English-speakers; cohabitation nation; 50 years in space.

Gospel Coalition – The plenary sessions of the Gospel Coalition Conference will be live-streamed at Desiring God’s site.

Earth Art – After I posted a link to some “earth art” a few days ago, a reader forwarded me this site. It has some stunning photographs on display.

Know What’s In It – I appreciate the point of this article: don’t just know how to defend the Bible, but be sure you also know what’s in it.

—D.A. Carson

  • Do Not Envy the Wicked

    Do You Envy the Wicked?

    It takes a long time for sinful instincts to become pure, for tendencies toward what is evil to be transformed into tendencies toward what is good, lovely, and pleasing to God. The man who quits drugs will still react when he catches a whiff and the woman who gave up alcoholism will still struggle when…
