Looking for a Mentor? – Yes! “We hope that a mentor will share their life with us, speak truth, lead us to pray and worship, share with us a greater knowledge of Scripture and offer insight into living a godly life. I believe that a great book can do some of these things. Your shelves can be overflowing with mentors.”

Sympathy for the Devil – Now this is a flat-out fascinating review of Noah.

The Truth of the Cross – Ligonier Ministries is giving away the audiobook of R.C. Sproul’s The Truth of the Cross. You know what to do…

Aiding and Abetting Apathy – Erik Raymond wants you to think through your response when someone tells you this: “I need to get back in the Word.” or “My prayer life has been kinda dry lately.”
