I received a box full of author copies of This Is Our Time this week. If you pre-ordered the book, they should begin to arrive soon. If you spot one on a bookstore shelf, let me know on Twitter or Facebook!
Also this week, I was honored to host The Gospel Project webcast on how we teach kids, students, and adults the gospel from the Gospels. Here are some quotes from the event, and a way you can watch, in case you missed it.
Kindle Deal: Jesus, the Final Days: What Really Happened by Craig Evans and N. T. Wright. $3.99.
1. Neil Pasricha – 8 Ways to Read More Books This Year. Interesting that the first suggestion is about the culture of your house.
2. The Guardian – “I Thought I Was Smarter Than Everyone Else.” This is a fascinating profile of a KGB agent in the United States.
3. Darryl Dash – Surprising Advice from Two Older Saints. J.I. Packer and John Stott’s late-life advice.
4. Immortal Beloved: Musical Love Letters from the Great Composers. It’s not just Beethoven’s “Fur Elise.” Here are some more.
5. Sarah Eekhoff Zylstra – The Story Behind John Piper’s Most Famous Attack on the Prosperity Gospel. I still remember where I was when I first saw this video. Its history may surprise you.
6. Praying with the Holy Apostles. 18 categories from an ancient prayer manual.
7. Heather Zeiger – Manipulating Science News. Politics isn’t the only realm of “fake news.”
