God’s Been Hunting Me Down – David Murray tells what he has learned from his recent health woes. “I know that’s the main message God has been sending me through these afflictions. STOP!” There are good lessons there for all of us.

The Book Surgeon – This is amazing stuff. I think I may have linked to it before. But it’s just as amazing now. If was rich…well, if I was rich I don’t know that I could justify spending money on it. But it’s still amazing.

Deals @ WTS – Westminster Books has some good deals this week. You can check out the new Christianity Explored books and DVDs at a deep discount and also get a selection of other good books at 45 or 50% off. Click the link for details.

Soldiers’ Bedrooms – This is kind of tragic–a gallery of some of the bedrooms that America’s young war dead have left behind.
