The Strange Oprahfication of Rob Bell – “Without intending malice or slander, I have to suggest that Bell is sounding less like a preacher of Christianity (even a liberal one) and more like the newest member of an affluent, West Coast cult.”

The Modern Hymnal – You’ll enjoy this interview with Keith Getty.

Confessions Of A Hardcore Homeschooler – Stephen Altrogge shares some confessions of a hardcore homeschooler.

Don’t Get an Emotional Divorce – You need to guard your heart (and not just your body) while dating.
