I noticed that Chuck is still not posting. His last post was 8/4. Please continue to pray for his recovery.
It’s the Battle of the Bible Wars. Which one will be the victor? The best quote so far in this battle is from Beck!
WBMoore grapples with Christians and sinning. Bill has several really good series going now. Just pick one. Any and all are worthwhile. Robert discusses the cultural relevance of churches (and music). While Brian picks on Sola Scripura.
Not too long ago, I commented on Christians in higher education. Hiscrivener has an example from Augusta State. Joel asks about attending Liberal Universities. I can’t speak for the liberal seminaries, but going to liberal colleges didn’t hurt me too much.
Last Sunday, El Bryan Libre started a discussion on ebook readers. (part 2) I would love to enlarge my non-pleasure library via digital books. I’m still finding it irritating that my texts for the MLS program have not been available digitally. I got my netbook with digital books in mind but have used it for much more. In the latest issue of American Libraries, Thomas Frey predicts that we will soon be able to get readers for $20.
Feeling all warm and fuzzy for radically reaching Muslims? Bible Monkey tells about an organization planning to burn the Koran. Which may explain in part why ELB is fed up with Christian fundamental bloggers. Before I left, Kevin wrote installment 5 of Leaving Church. Very thoughtful series.
Jeff asks if he should combine his blogs. I think he should. I subscribe to them all on my reader, so I don’t miss any, but I love one-stop-shopping.
Nathan is back at school. *sigh* I am of course right behind him without the citation hopefully. Richard Byrne listed 11 techy things that teachers should try this year AND linked to gooreader, which I have installed but not tried yet. Science Daily tells us that students with poor study habits don’t get better by using the computer.
Nick also liked Despicable Me. I still chuckle when I think about it and would like to see it again. BTW, we was Inception and The Sorcerer’s Apprentice while we were in Bedford. I liked them both, but Inception was just amazing. Marc Cortez points us toward 50 things a woman should do and should never do (2 lists). Match clothes to skin-tone? There wasn’t anything more important to put on a top 50 list? Marc also posted a list of the 20 worst paying college degrees. I posted not too long ago about the Worst-Paying Masters.
I am terribly jealous of all the review books I’ve been seeing bloggers post about. Only so many hours in the day and I had to cut something to finish the MLS . . . .
Edited to add what I forgot – probably because it was one of the first things I read . . . . 😉
Brian posted about women in ministry. I always find discussions like this interesting and at times wonder why God bothered to give women brains. This is not such a post. I’m midway through reading James DeYoung’s Women in Ministry and have enjoyed it so far. One comment that really caught my eye was how some can dismiss covering the head as cultural, but they stick to women be silent like glue.
