A La Carte (February 21)

I’m off to Denver today to speak several times over the weekend at Littleton Bible Chapel. I look forward to meeting some of you there!

Logos users may want to take a look at some deals from Thomas Nelson that include quite a number of reference works and books by John MacArthur. To …

A La Carte (February 20)

I wanted to remind you that I’m now into the pre-order phase for my new book and documentary series Epic: An Around-the-World Journey Through Christian History.

A La Carte (February 19)

Last week’s article on blogging resulted in a flood of people sending their blog to me. There were so many that I couldn’t reply to each of you personally, but do know that I’m grateful. I added each to my RSS reader and look forward to tracking with them all. Today’s Kindle deals include a few solid choices like Christopher Yuan’s Holy Sexuality and the Gospel and Daniel Strange’s Plugged In. Westminster Books has a deal on a brand new …

A La Carte (February 18)

I spent a chunk of yesterday’s Family Day holiday catching up with some of the longform articles I had bookmarked but not yet gotten around to reading.

A La Carte (February 17)

It is Family Day here in Canada—a holiday invented recently (as a campaign promise, I think) just to give us a day off in February. I gladly accept it. There are just a few Kindle deals today—two of them designed to help you with joy or happiness.

A La Carte (February 14)

A quick look at my weather app shows a frigid -14 Celsius out there this morning. Beside it is the “feels like” temperature which accounts for wind and other factors; it is registering at -24. Maybe someone else would like to go out there and carry my trash to the road for pickup? Today’s Kindle deals include only a handful of books, but there are a couple of important ones, including a volume in the NSBT series and Kidner’s excellent …

A La Carte (February 12)

Sometimes I think I should begin these A La Carte posts with a personalized message. But then I wonder, how would I possibly vary that across the 320 or so I prepare each year? That seems unlikely, so I usually just get right down to business… … by mentioning that I dug up some new Kindle deals. Logos has individual volumes in the NIC series at just $19.99—an amazing price. Many are considered top-quality, (e.g. Genesis, Ruth, 1 & 2 …
