Pull the Plug! – Randy Alcorn: “Here is a sad and bewildering commentary that captures in one example the utter inefficiency and sometimes craziness of a government that talks about controlling spending, but never seems to actually do it even when it would appear so easy—as in JUST PULL THE PLUG!”

The O.T. on One Page – Here is David Murray’s attempt to sum up the contents of the Old Testament books on one page.

Christ is so in love with holiness, that at the price of his blood he will buy it for us.

—John Flavel
