The End of Men – “Earlier this year, women became the majority of the workforce for the first time in U.S. history. Most managers are now women too. And for every two men who get a college degree this year, three women will do the same. For years, women’s progress has been cast as a struggle for equality. But what if equality isn’t the end point? What if modern, postindustrial society is simply better suited to women? A report on the unprecedented role reversal now under way— and its vast cultural consequences…”

Homeschool Blindspots – Joshua Harris points out an interesting article for homeschoolers.

Netflix for Books – This could be very, very interesting if true. “Today … we’re hearing reports via the WSJ that Amazon may soon launch a book equivalent of the service, charging a fixed monthly fee for access to a library of books. Amazon will reportedly offer book publishers a substantial fee for their involvement in the program.”

Non Sola Scriptura – Dan Phillips takes a chainsaw to the Blackaby view of knowing God’s will. He says that their chapter in a new book is “just about the single most appalling trainwreck I’ve read in recent memory, whether viewed exegetically, hermeneutically, theologically, or pastorally. The implications, if taken and followed out seriously by anyone (—God forbid!), are absolutely catastrophic.”

America’s Coolest Houses – Something to look at on your lunch break, perhaps.

Christians in China – The BBC: “Many of China’s churches are overflowing, as the number of Christians in the country multiplies. In the past, repression drove people to convert – is the cause now rampant capitalism?”

Biblical Counseling – Here are a lot of different definitions of biblical counseling.

The Bible is a letter God has sent to us; prayer is a letter we send to him.

—Matthew Henry
