Logos’ March Matchups is done and there are some great deals to be had. Baker Commentary on the Old Testament is 60% off and Pillar New Testament Commentary is 57% off. A bunch of others are in the 40-60% off range. Get the deals while you can!

Westminster Books is having their annual (semi-annual?) sale on pew Bibles. It’s a good time to stock up!

I added a good-sized batch of Kindle deals yesterday and will see what today brings.

In Flight

I enjoyed Susan’s anecdote about a flight and a conversation.

The Titanic Was the Safest Ship of Its Time

“Oh, the benefit of hindsight. One hundred years later, it seems like the most obvious thing in the world to us that a ship should have enough lifeboats for all of its passengers and crew. But if anyone had pointed out the danger to White Star, the company that owned the Titanic, they would have laughed as they positively compared themselves to every other ship out there.”

When God Blesses Others and Not Us

What is the correct response when God blesses others and not us? Here’s some guidance.

If a Millennial Is Born and No One Records It on Their Phone, Do They Really Exist?

Samuel James uses the recent example of the Princess of Wales to show how technology has a way of redefining personhood.

The Exemplary Art of Anne Marie Vallotton

Andrew Roycroft has a great little tribute to Anne Marie Vallotton. You may not recognize her name, but there’s a good chance you’ll recognize her art.

Surgical and Sexological Practices? Not Today, Satan

Anne Kennedy: “Fortunately for us, Satan lacks self-control. He can’t keep anything within reasonable proportion. He can’t be content with transing just some of the kids. He must trans all of them. He must destroy every human body on the way to devouring every precious soul. And so, eventually, all the confused speech becomes such a deafening cacophony of lies, that all the ‘surgical racism,’ whatever that is, will be seen for what it is—total and complete evil.”

Flashback: If God Would Outsource His Sovereignty

…we are not our own, but belong to him in body and in soul, in life and in death, in joy and in sorrow, in the circumstances we would have chosen anyway and the ones we would have avoided at all costs. 

While God did rest from His creative work, since the Fall He has never rested from His redemptive work.

—Peter Hubbard

    How Should We Then Die?

    Euthanasia makes a lot of sense. At least in our culture at this time, it makes intuitive sense that those who are ill without hope for a cure or those who are in pain without likelihood of relief ought to be able to choose to end their own lives. Our culture assumes there are few…

    The Sun Is Blotted from the Sky

    Men of great physical strength have sometimes carried outrageously heavy burdens—six hundred pounds, seven hundred pounds, eight hundred. And even then they have said, “I still have not been fully tested. Put on some more weight! Load me up!” With confidence they have gripped the bar and with great straining and groaning they have lifted…
