- This morning I came across this article about a woman Discovering Inspiration in a Trunk Full of Letters and I didn't want to wait until Friday to share it, I just "had" to share it today. The author of the article used that found treasure (AKA trunk of letters) as part of her inspiration for her soon to be released book about letter writing. Signed, Sealed, Delivered: Celebrating the Joys of Letter Writing by Nina Sankovitch sounds like it should be a fun read for letter lovers and will be released around April 15.
- I also saw this short article on The Lost Art of Letter Writing and anyone who lives near or will be visiting Seattle may want to check it out as they list several shops where you can find unique stationery in Seattle.
- Five Things Every Christian Needs to Grow by R.C. Sproul is on sale for $4.09 today.
- Scripture and the Authority of God: How to Read the Bible Today by N.T. Wright is on sale for $2.99 (until April 21). I have to confess the "Today" part of the subtitle leaves me sort of scratching my head. Why does he think we need "a new model for understanding God’s authority and the Bible?" I'm sure many of us are guilty of misreading the Bible but I doubt there's a newfangled way of reading; my skeptical side can't help but think that Mortimer Adler's How to Read a Book (or Tony Reinke's Lit! A Christian Guide to Reading Books) will tell you the same thing about reading and possibly even more (grasping the authors intended meaning, not just a "what it means to me" kind of reading, etc.).
- Creature of the Word: the Jesus-Centered Church by Matt Chandler is $2.99.
A missionary that I "follow" recently shared this blogger's review of the new movie Noah. I had no intention of going to see it even before I read this post but must admit I enjoyed his review of the movie. Actually, I laughed so hard it brought tears to my eyes. And then yesterday he posted this enlightening article about the "gender wage gap" that our illustrious politicians in DC are making a ruckus about. The same politicians who pay their male employees more than their women employees. You'd think they'd check their own payroll before they started pointing fingers and calling everyone else names.
