A Young(er) Wayne Grudem – This is fun: “I love a good vintage theology book. Vintage, in this usage, means late 70′s or early 80′s, and I’m mainly talking about cover aesthetics.

5 Lies About Your Body – Here are five lies our culture tells us about how we should perceive our bodies—and five truths from Scripture to help shift our perspective.
