Notes from the Tilt-A-Whirl – Check out this new DVD version of N.D. Wilson’s Notes from the Tilt-A-Whirl. Westminster Books has it at 60% off for just a short time. I’ve have a review ready to go if Canada Post hadn’t shut down with my copy of the DVD still in the mail…

Transformed by God’s Grace – Grace Greene is the founder and owner of Peru Paper, a company that employs Peruvian women to hand-make greeting cards sold in the United States and other countries. As a result of Greene’s vision, women in impoverished neighborhoods in Trujillo, Peru, have found new lives as respected artisans, and their work is winning hearts for Christ worldwide.

Books of the Year – Marvin Olasky writes about WORLD’s books of the year. “Two new books are important responses to the rapidly growing promotion of theistic- or, more properly, deistic-evolution…”

Forged Not Found – Jennifer Smidt says that an excellent wife is forged, not found. “My task-oriented, performance-driven heart attempts to fix itself by making a list: An excellent wife cooks with organic food (not Velveeta), sews her own clothing (or at least irons her husbands shirts!), speaks only words dripping with grace (and not sarcasm) and reads her Bible for hours on end (okay, minutes?!)).”

Date Night – I got a laugh out of this. “We all like surprises. We all like to laugh. When you combine these two together under the banner of some of life’s most basic questions, you have something special. This is what my wife and I experienced on Saturday night…”

The Tree of Life – Michael Horton reviews the new film The Tree of Life. A brief quote: “I’m going to go out on a limb here, but it’s provoked by the film itself. Intentional or not, the movie exhibits some of the deep ontological flaws in Roman Catholic theology.”

The Beauty of My Wife – Julian writes about an important theme: how he and I can both declare our wife to be the most beautiful woman in the world…and how we can both be right.

The Cello Song – This is really well done.

Jesus produced mainly three effects: hatred, terror, adoration. There was no trace of people expressing mild approval.

—C.S. Lewis

  • Not a Life of Ease

    It’s Not a Life of Ease

    You can’t read the New Testament and fail to understand that the Christian life was never meant to be a life of ease. Each of us will encounter adversity and adversaries, and each of us will have to wage war against our fearsome foes— the world, the flesh, and the devil. Then, each of us…

    The Way You Walk

    You can tell a lot about people by the way they walk, can’t you? You can tell a lot about their physical health, their emotional state, and perhaps even their spiritual condition. You can often tell at a glance whether they are healthy or ill, joyful or sorrowful, delighting or despondent. Consider a company of…
