A La Carte (October 16)

I was able to dig up just a few new Kindle deals for today. Here’s a fun little exchange to start the day today. A couple of days ago, The Babylon Bee wrote an article titled “Keith And Kristyn Getty Struggling To Come Up With Word That Rhymes With ‘Substitutionary Atonement.’” They took that as a challenge and posted this little song to Twitter. The Importance Of Doing What Anyone Could Do Top notch, this. “‘A lot of people could …

A La Carte (October 11)

There are just a couple of new Kindle deals today, though they are both of books I think I’ve never seen on the list before. Like Father, Like Son I really enjoyed Larry Lin’s article on fathers and sons. “Two years ago, I became a father myself.
