Denny Burk linked to a good article on how Manute Bol lived out his Christian faith, and Denny’s post has a nice pic of Manute Bol and Spud Webb.
I sometimes get asked about whether it is okay for wives and/or mothers to work outside the home. John Piper does a phenomenal job answering that question.
Do you like the biblical theology of Geerhardus Vos? Check out the two interviews with Richard Barcellos on his new book The Family Tree of Reformed Biblical Theology here.
If you have any interest at all in politics, you really should read JT’s interview-style adaptation of an essay by Robert P. George. Instructive and well stated: “truth is luminously powerful” and “politics is the art of the possible.” The entirety of this exchange begs to be quoted in full:
Why does speaking of “truth” frighten some people today?
They evidently believe that people who claim to know the truth about anything—and especially about moral matters—are fundamentalists and potential totalitarians. But, as Hadley Arkes has patiently explained, those on the other side of the great debates over social issues such as abortion and marriage make truth claims—moral truth claims—all the time. They assert their positions with no less confidence and no more doubt than one finds in the advocacy of pro-lifers and defenders of conjugal marriage. They proclaim that women have a fundamental right to abortion. They maintain that “love makes a family” and other strong and controversial moral claims. The question, then, is not whether there are truths about such things as the morality of abortion and the nature of marriage; the question in each case is, What is true?
Robert P. George on the Purpose of Law and Government really is a must read.
