Is Eric Metaxas the next Chuck Colson? – From the Washington Post: “Before evangelical leader Chuck Colson fell ill at a conference last year, crumbling at the podium and later dying at the hospital, it was Eric Metaxas who introduced him. At the time, Metaxas seemed primed and ready to become the next Colson — a key leader in the evangelical movement, known for his prison ministry, but also credited with keeping Christians engaged in politics and culture through books, radio and other outlets.”

Souvenirs and Postcards – This week only Andrew Osenga is giving away his EP Souvenirs and Postcards.

The less we read the Word of God, the less we desire to read it, and the less we pray, the less we desire to pray.
