A La Carte (July 1)

A La Carte Collection cover image

Happy Canada Day! I know that each of you is celebrating in your own way. To celebrate the day (and the start of a new month), here are a few freebies and deals. Free from Logos is a pair of books, including one by Tom Schreiner. You’ll need to visit the main page of Logos.com and click the link to Free Book of the Month. Meanwhile, this month’s free book from Christian Audio is Ian & Larissa Murphy’s Eight Twenty Eight. It’s a good one, and it’s there for the taking! Finally, and as always, Amazon begins the new month with a selection of Kindle deals that cover most genres.

Earth View – Earth View is a collection of especially interesting shots from Google Earth. (If you are a Chrome user, grab the extension.) I love it!

Face Death Defiantly – There is a lot to be said for this: “Within the bounds of the gospel, defiance against death can be holy, cleansing, and constructive.”

Apologetics Resources – Westminster Books has some good apologetics resources on sale this week.

Colors – I enjoyed this short celebration of color. Of course I probably would have enjoyed it even more if not for the fact that I’m red/green color-blind.

The New F-Word – This article discusses how swearing and profanity inevitably change over time. (Note: Obviously there are offensive words in the article since, well, it’s about offensive words.)

You Will Be Perescuted with Words – Tom Schreiner: “It isn’t right to say that Christians in the United States are free from persecution. We should be more precise: we are free from physical persecution.”

It takes more than clicking like for a good cause to change the world.

    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. Sports are exciting, they say, but even more exciting when you’ve got a bit of money riding on them. So why not enjoy them all…

    It’s Not a Life of Ease

    You can’t read the New Testament and fail to understand that the Christian life was never meant to be a life of ease. Each of us will encounter adversity and adversaries, and each of us will have to wage war against our fearsome foes— the world, the flesh, and the devil. Then, each of us…
