For Whom the Bell Tolls – Thomas Sowell takes on the riots and violence in Britain and the US of A. “Not only the trends over the years leading up to these riots but also the squeamish responses to them by officials — on both sides of the Atlantic — reveal the moral dry rot that has spread deep into Western societies.” While on the topic, St. Helen’s Bishopgate has put together a web page offering Christian thinking on it all.

Tim Tebow: Blasphemer? – Collin Hansen is a fantastic writer and this article was a joy to read.

Generational Conflict – D.A. Carson writes about generational conflict in ministry in his editorial for the most recent issue of Themelios. There are other good articles and reviews that you can access here.

37 Ways – Paul Tautges goes to the Bible to find 37 ways to love one another. This would make a really good personal or small group study.

Come to Me – I found this an interesting little study. This person studied all of the verses where God says “come to me.” “I noticed patterns in these verses and decided to chart out these passages. … I thought I’d post the chart. Here it is.”

Remembering the Berlin Wall – The Big Picture: “Here are images from this past weekend’s recognition of the construction of the wall 50 years ago, as well as historic images.”

Digital Free Ride – “The public hasn’t lost its appetite for television, journalism or film; shows, articles and movies reach more consumers than ever online. The problem is that, although the internet has expanded the audience for media, it has all but destroyed the market for it.”

I think the greatest miracle that God can do is to take an unholy man out of an unholy world, and make that unholy man holy and put him back in an unholy world and keep him holy.

—Leonard Ravenhill
