A La Carte (November 25)

There are going to be lots of Kindle deals today and through the weekend. So your best bet will be to check the Kindle Deals for Christians page at least once each day through to Monday (which is, of course, Cyber Monday).

Donald Trump and the Great Projection

This is a fascinating article: “The dream of a Clinton presidency and liberal Supreme Court has turned into a nightmare. The hope that America might become one big college campus where dissenters could be shouted down with the connivance of the administration has been inverted. The weapons liberals sharpened now look likely to be turned upon the left.”

The Last Text

The National Post is running an important series on the danger of using your phone while driving. It’s probably good reading for teens, but for adults as well.

We Are Open!

How To Serve in Missions in Your Local Church

“You, dear Christian — working full-time, raising a family, established in a church, and serving in that ministry context — can actively serve in missionary work. But it’ll cost you.

22 Prayers for Your Bible Reading

“Reading the Bible before praying is like putting the cart before the horse.” Exactly so. So here are some prayers to get you started.

Mocking the Toilet Habits of the Progressive gods

This is a strong essay. “What we have experienced in 2016 in the West is the fall (momentary) and mockery of the false progressive gods. It’s Schadenfreude to the left, right and centre, everywhere in the West.”

100 Most Influential Images of All Time

TIME offers what they consider the 100 most influential images of all time.

Flashback: Oh, How I Love the Law!

In the very first Psalm we find him declaring the man blessed who finds God’s law a source of great delight. It sounds a bit strange to our ears, doesn’t it? Aren’t we people of grace? Aren’t we free from the law?


At all events, we are not likely in this day to err on the side of praying too much.
