There is a pretty good list of Kindle deals to look at today.
I have returned from my week-long trip to India. I was there primarily to visit sites related to my EPIC project, but I also had the opportunity to speak at a conference for pastors and to spend many, many hours getting to know Indian brothers and sisters from all across the nation. I enjoyed the trip, but am glad to be home!

“There is a place for skimming and for a shallow understanding; we don’t all need to know the ins and outs of jam-making, cricket, or dolphin echo-location. But if a topic matters – if it is something we are going to share with others, debate, and hold strong opinions about – then as servants of the Truth, we need to dig deeper and truly understand. That’s what we need to do to properly reflect and represent the God of Truth (John 14:6).”
I really enjoyed this article with an author who has written the definitive treatment of Christian universalism.
“Can we learn from each other? Of course. Can we inspire each other to better habits? Most definitely. But I can’t judge your relationship with Him based upon my own patterns. The Bible gives us a lot of freedom to be ourselves.”
Here’s a very interesting take on the current issues within the Roman Catholic Church, why it matters, and what may happen next.
“The moment we lose sight of the work of the Trinity in our salvation, we are drifting away from the whole Bible’s witness to the glory of our salvation.”
“In the modern West, our baseline expectation for what life should be is set higher than at any other time or place. But this new expectation has come with a high cost we may not notice as clearly as we should.”
Why do Christians suffer? Why aren’t Christians relieved from trouble, from pain, from suffering? If God is powerful and wise, why doesn’t he direct his power and wisdom toward more comfortable lives for the ones he loves and redeems?
