Steve Saint: The Next Chapter – Steve Saint was recently in a bad accident and may now be permanently paralyzed. Randy Alcorn shares a video from Steve’s hospital bed. You can read details of the accident here.

TGC Women’s Conference – You can watch the Gospel Coalition women’s event live online starting Friday at noon.

The All-Sufficiency of Christ – For the rap fan, here’s a new, free track from Timothy Brindle. He speaks of the sufficiency of Jesus Christ. On a similar note, you may enjoy this article from Christianity Today (PDF).

Our Eugenic Past and Future – Here’s an article from the New York Times that traces our eugenic past and future. “Having left behind pseudoscientific racial theories, it’s easy for us to look back and pass judgment on yesterday’s eugenicists. It’s harder to acknowledge what we have in common with them. First, a relentless desire for mastery and control, not only over our own lives but over the very marrow and sinew of generations yet unborn. And second, a belief in our own fundamental goodness, no matter to what ends our mastery is turned.”

And What Remains – I enjoyed this short film, though I kept hoping for a good, gospel punch!

Libraries, Studies, Writing Rooms – The Art of Manliness has a gallery of the libraries, studies and writing rooms of famous authors.

A Little World Made Cunningly – We truly are fearfully and wonderfully made. And that includes being indwelt (or ondwelt) by a myriad of other fearfully and wonderfully made little creatures. “The ancients talked about the human body as a microcosm, as a little world. Now scientists have shown just how true that is, how each of us is a world with millions of inhabitants.”

We need never shout across the spaces to an absent God. He is nearer than our own soul, closer than our most secret thoughts.

—A.W. Tozer

    Why Didn’t You Tell Me?

    If you have spent any time at all on YouTube, you have probably seen videos of people hearing for the first time or people seeing color for the first time—videos of people who, through the miracles of modern science, have senses restored that had either been missing altogether or that had become dull through illness…

    We All Have To Do With God

    Every one of us must deal with God. Every one of us must, at some time, face God. Every one of us must be prepared to give an account to God. For, as Scripture says, “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto…
