No essay from me today. I’ve got a couple of undeveloped ideas, but work caught up with me. As penance, take these links that I was saving up for Friday. I’ll just have to find more over the next two days!
- Derek Ouellette at Covenant of Love keeps killing it with these great KJV in 90 days posts; here’s a great one on Leviticus and predestination.
- Douglas Wilson reprints a sermon in which he defends using the King James Version. He’s got four criteria for choosing one translation over the others: authority, sourcing, philosophy, and intelligibility.
- Evangel disagrees with some of Wilson’s reasons but also endorses the King James Version.
- Scientia et Sapientia has a good post on the importance of reading the church fathers, particularly Augustine.
- Scripture Zealot’s got a great post about God’s glory in hiding things.
- Damaris Zehner, at iMonk, on the forgotten deadly sin: gluttony.
- Thomas Kidd at Patheos talks about the origins and consequences of evangelical teetotalism.
- I can do no better than reprint the title of this post at the Thinklings, with which I wholeheartedly agree: I Love You, My Beautiful Kindle.
- The Pope urges Biblical baby names as a means of witness and of carrying on tradition.
