Man, Woman, and the Mystery of Christ – Here’s the (PDF) text of Russell Moore’s address at the Vatican earlier this week.

Interpretive Dance – WORLD magazine covers BioLogos. “The BioLogos Foundation is making a major, well-funded push to change the way Christians read Genesis and think about Adam and Eve.”
