Brian, Rob and Don – “A decade ago, they stood as the leading voices for our evangelical future. We all know what happened since. But do we know why?” Writing for Christianity Today, Kevin Miller has some ideas.

Keeping It Real – This infographic highlights the top ten reasons people prefer printed books to ebooks.

Unbroken – If the movie of Unbroken is half as good as the book, it will be fantastic. Here’s a trailer for it. (With Hollywood’s track record, half as good is probably about as good as we can hope for.)

Cleaner Throws Out “Rubbish” Art – This is too funny. “A cleaner has mistakenly thrown away contemporary artworks meant to be part of an exhibition in southern Italy.

    He Was a Kind Man

    What comes to mind when you think of R.C. Sproul? What do you remember of his life and ministry? What associations do you make when you hear his name?
