$5 Friday – There are a few noteworthy deals in Ligonier’s $5 Friday, including Reclaiming Adoption, Surprised by Suffering (one of my favorite Sproul books and it’s the hardcover edition), and several teaching series.

Culture and Homeschool – You may appreciate Tracy Keen’s thoughts on pre-mature children and how they can be formed via exposure to culture or the protection of homeschooling. “Home school parents push their children to mature before they are ready, especially with daughters. Within my own local home school group I have noticed young girls who are definitely in that awkward, in between stage of no longer being a child, but not yet a woman.”

Strange Things Afoot – Timothy Dalrymple: “One of the more enjoyable facts about my present job is that I can, from my perch here at Patheos, see a fairly broad range of what’s going on in the world of Christian media.

Monergism MP3 Collection – Monergism has a massive collection of MP3s available for download and you are now able to find MP3s from a wide variety of teachers sorted by books and chapters of the Bible.

—C.H. Spurgeon

    This week the blog is sponsored by Moody Publishers. Parents have a biblical responsibility to protect their children not only from physical harm but also from spiritual harm.

    Young Man, Don’t Even Make that First Sports Bet

    It’s impossible to avoid the advertising and impossible to miss the claims. Sports are great, they say, but do you know what makes them even better? Adding a little wager.
