Cherish the Book Publishers – The title and subtitle of this op-ed at the Wall Street Journal pretty much say it all: “Cherish the Book Publishers—You’ll Miss Them When They’re Gone.” Call me a snob, but I receive enough self-published books to know that many books are turned down by publishers for a good reason.

If Leonardo DiCaprio Got Saved – If Leonardo DiCaprio got saved just imagine what he could do for the Lord’s sake. And he would, right? So why hasn’t God thought of that plan?

The Next Story – Professor of Philosophy Douglas Groothuis has just published a review of The Next Story. I was eager to read his take on it since I often referred to his writing on technology in my studies. In the end it was quite an enlightening and encouraging review.

The iPhone Is Too Expensive – We already know that the iPhone is too expensive (though that doesn’t stop millions from buying it). This article explains what Apple may have to gain from introducing a cheaper model.

If the whole world were changed into a globe of gold it could not fill thy heart.

—Thomas Brooks
