What It Means And Does Not Mean To Honor Our President – Mark Altrogge follows up.

Let Boys be Non-Medicated Boys – “Even the goodness of boyhood energy is broken by the fall. But in most cases, what if we are getting the diagnosis wrong? What if ADHD seems more like God-given characteristics of what it means to actually be a boy?”

The Man in the Van – ESPN has a great profile of one of the quirkiest players in Major League Baseball.

The Life and Theology of Paul – Ligonier Ministries is putting together a great selection of courses; the latest one looks at the life and theology of Paul; the first lecture is free. (Also consider their $5 Friday sale which has some good books and commentaries.)
