A La Carte (March 5)

My eldest turns 20 today. 20! So if you happen to see him down there at Southern Seminary, give him a quick and introvert-appropriate “happy birthday.” (And yes, it’s just about killing me that he’s 600 miles away from me today!) Today’s Kindle deals include a few “odds and ends.” Westminster Books has a deal on the new Big Theology for Little Hearts series of books for young children. (Yesterday on the blog: Living as Christians in the Age of …

A La Carte (March 4)

I don’t know about you, but I think the Babylon Bee has been on point lately with hilarious headlines like In Major Gaffe, Bernie Sanders Forgets Words To Communist Manifesto and Christians Finally Vindicated As Sidehugs Found To Protect Against Coronavirus. My life’s better when it includes a little satire. Logos users, get in on this year’s Logos March Madness and get us some discounted books. It’s not a huge list of Kindle deals today, but the ones that are …

A La Carte (March 3)

It’s nice to see Crossway getting back into Kindle deals with a couple of books today. (Also on Amazon, photographers, gamers and others may want to take advantage of a one-day sale on storage solutions like SD cards, etc.) Logos users will likely want to grab the free resource of the month. After all, it’s free! The monthly sale is also worth browsing through. (Yesterday on the blog: From Tabernacle to Stormtrooper Dance) Do We Really Believe in Demons? Trevin …

A La Carte (March 2)

I mentioned on Saturday that a pilot friend was taking me to spend some time in his airline’s flight simulator. Suffice it to say that if you ever get on an airliner and see me in the cockpit, I’d recommend you get out while you still can. Today’s Kindle deals include some interesting books along with a couple of commentaries by recommended authors. You may also want to check out Amazon’s general market deals of the month. (Yesterday on the …

Weekend A La Carte (February 29)

What am I up to on this fine Saturday? A friend who is a pilot has invited me to spend a couple of hours with him in one of his airline’s flight simulators. That sounds like some next-level geekery to me. So off I go… Today’s Kindle deals include the usual Saturday list of Christian classics, but there are some much more contemporary books there as well. (Yesterday on the blog: On Conferences and Travel During a Pandemic) Magical Thinking …

A La Carte (February 28)

We are in maybe just a bit of a lull when it comes to Kindle deals, but there are a few for you to think about, at least. We will hope for better things tomorrow. What’s To Be Done? Potentially, Nothing Else. “We have a tendency to expect the church to fix every possible problem. We can rightly identify things that are less than excellent in the church. But our next question is often very telling: ‘what should be done?’” But …

A La Carte (February 27)

I think Ellie Holcomb is creating some of the most enjoyable-for-adults kids’ music today. Her new album Sing: Remembering Songs is proof. Westminster Books has a great sale on a great Sinclair Ferguson book: The Whole Christ. (Yesterday on the blog: New and Notable Christian Books for February 2020) The Baby Carrier This is such a sweet reflection on moving from one phase of parenting to another. “Last year I packed up the majority of our baby things. Play mats, …

A La Carte (February 26)

Today’s Kindle deals include a lot of shorter books. (Pro tip: One of the ways you read many books in a year is to ensure that some of them are shorter books; it’s not cheating!) Logos users, don’t forget that individual volumes in the excellent NIC commentary series are on sale for just $19.99. That sale ends very soon. Seven Questions to Ask in Evaluating Online Pundits Kevin DeYoung knocks this one out of the park. “One of the best …

A La Carte (February 25)

Today’s Kindle deals are probably not the most interesting of all-time, but there are still a few there. Over at Westminster Books you’ll find all 40 editions of the ESV Thinline Bibles discounted 50%. (Yesterday on the blog: On Cracking the Code) Count Your Blessings Sometimes the songs of our childhood have wisdom to impart. “Imagine how much fuller our Christian lives and service would be if we would simply count God’s many blessings—giving Him thanks for each of them. …

A La Carte (February 24)

I had a very enjoyable weekend here in Littleton, Colorado, and was blessed to meet so many of you. And now all that remains is for me to make the homeward journey! Today’s Kindle deals include Andrew Peterson’s Adorning the Dark, which many people considered their favorite book of 2019. One of the Most Misused Words Today If you had to think Christianly about all of the words that are most misused today, you probably wouldn’t have much trouble coming …
