First off, happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians. We have much to be thankful for, don’t we? I trust that you will be able to enjoy the day with friends or family.
And now here are today’s Kindle deals. They include: ESV Men’s Devotional Bible, ESV Women’s Devotional Bible (both of which are excellent), Nothing but the Truth by John MacArthur, and In Light of Eternity by Randy Alcorn. There are a whole more as well, including solid books on prayer and on guidance. Get them all here.
I’ve only ever found them moralistic, but still, here’s how the Berenstain bears found salvation, so to speak. “As a parent, I took it for granted that the moral framework of contemporary children’s books, when it made an appearance, would remain disengaged from any actual dogma.

This Day in 2003. 13 years ago today Desiring God held its very first National Conference on the life and legacy of Jonathan Edwards.
John MacArthur has at it.
Michael Horton reviews N.T. Wright’s latest work. “I agree with a lot in this book. I agree with the basic gist of Wright’s critique and with much of his own proposal. That response might surprise some, including the author, with whom I’ve enjoyed spirited and edifying discussions of the manuscript. My differences lie at the point of certain details. That said, they are significant.”
We have a word for doing too little: lazy. We have a word for doing too much: busy. But we don’t have a word for whatever comes in between. Not a good one, anyway.
