A La Carte (6/7)

A La Carte Collection cover image

It seems like readers have been enjoying the Kindle specials I’ve posted the past couple of days. So here are a couple more I noticed yesterday: Choosing to SEE by Mary Beth Chapman is available at $2.99; Tortured for Christ by Richard Wurmbrand is at $1.00; Same Kind of Different As Me is at $4.74.

Father’s Day Special – Cruciform Press has a Father’s Day special going on. “Get your dad (or really, anyone) a one-year print book subscription and you gain a special opportunity —Buy yourself (or your church, your small group, your reading club, your neighbor…) any number of books from the Cruciform Press catalog AT THE $6.49 SUBSCRIPTION PRICE.”

Tablets in Bed – Using that iPad in bed may not be good for your health.

Top Ten Fights in Marriage – “Toronto author Emma Waverman, who writes for the Canadian MSN Lifestyle Internet Portal, has come up with an unscientific list of the Top 10 Fights in Marriage. She’s ranked them in order of importance–ranging from a common squabble to an all out brawl.” Mary Kassian puts them to the vote.

Are You Smarter than Anthony Weiner? – Russell Moore asks an important question. “Crazy. Irrational. I don’t know the full story behind any of these, but, in every one of these situations, the behavior seems self-evidently self-destructive. So why do they do it? Why do people risk their families, their careers, their reputations, in such reckless ways?”

In the Hospital in Joplin – “You never know that it will be the most important day of your life until the day is over. The day started like any other day for me: waking up, eating, going to the gym, showering, and going to my 4 pm ED shift. As I drove to the hospital, I mentally prepared for my shift as I always do, but nothing could ever have prepared me for what was going to happen on this shift.”

Free eBooks – Monergism Books has a list of free e-books for you to download.

Results Matter – Thomas Sowell deals out spankings to the schools and to the government. I love reading his columns.

NEXT – I’m hearing good things about the messages delivered at the recent NEXT conference. They are free for the taking at the NEXT site.

Fixing Our Eyes on the Cross – Art Azurdia speaks on “Fixing Our Eyes On The Cross.”

The Christian life is not a playground; it is a battle ground.

—Warren Wiersbe

    How Can You Mumble?

    Some of my most meaningful moments of public worship have been in settings where I did not speak the language. I have stood with a congregation in rural Zambia as they’ve clapped and moved and praised the Lord in Bemba, a language that is utterly unknown to me. I’ve sat with a congregation in the…

    A Celebration of Friendship

    I may not be going too far out on a limb when I suggest that you have probably not heard the name Anna Laetitia Barbauld. For various reasons she has been largely forgotten by history, and this despite achieving a significant level of fame in the eighteenth century. Though at one time she was a…
