An Unforgettable Christmas – It is so true: “Kids learn to love what brings their parents delight.” There is direct application for the Christmas season.

Embiggening English – It has been many, many years since I’ve watched an episode of The Simpsons. But I did enjoy reading this article about its impact on the English language.

Bloodlines – There may be no better time than now to read John Piper’s book Bloodlines. Westminster Books has marked it way down.

Ligonier – Ligonier also has some good books on sale today for $5 each, and they include a favorite: R.C. Sproul’s The Truth of the Cross. There are several other deals as well.

The Everything Books – “Amazon won the book war. In a series of rare interviews, the company tells us what’s next.”

The Thank You Project – “Ten years after a tragic car accident, Kellie wants to find the heroes that saved her son’s life and thank them.”

Christian theology stands or falls with a historical Adam and a historical fall.

    It’s Not a Life of Ease
