The following is a(n updated) list of my favorite books I’ve read this past year, out of a total of 55 [link]. In somewhat of a particular order…
Elisabeth Elliot, wife of the martyr Jim Elliot, fell asleep today at the age of 88.
What follows is an excerpt from Joe Rigney‘s excellent book The Things of Earth. I highly recommend purchasing this book and putting it at the top of your to-read list. As Doug Wilson has said, “Buy this book. Make it one of your earthly possessions. Read it to find out what that is supposed to mean.”
A seventeen-year-old boy—son, brother, friend—was killed in a car crash Saturday afternoon.
On Sunday morning, after hearing about the tragic and unforeseen death, a room full of people mourned… with prayer and song, layered with drops of painful tears.
This was a group of peculiar people with a response to death that is foreign to most.
