Vicar of Baghdad Unarmed on the Front Lines – “While the genocide aimed at Christians does not approach the scale of what the Nazis aimed at Europe’s Jews, there are some sobering parallels between each of these assaults upon the innocent.”

Lead in Dating Your Wife – “The easiest way to consistently study your wife and examine your marriage is to lead in routinely dating your wife.”

52 Colorized Historical Photos – These are just plain awesome.

What Does Baseball Have to Do With Fatherhood? – A beautifully written piece from David Prince on fatherhood and baseball.

Facing the Music with Jennifer Knapp – Former Christian musician who recently “came out” has written a book and Trevin Wax offers sobering thoughts on her new work.

The Defense of Marriage Isn’t Over – “Rather than a single Roe v. Wade of marriage, where the Supreme Court would redefine marriage across the nation, the Court, by refusing to hear any of the marriage cases, has allowed lower federal courts to disregard the constitutional authority of citizens and their elected representatives to make good marriage policy.”

Squeezing Persecution – “If the goal of persecution is to silence witness, then it could be said that squeezing is often more effective than beating and imprisonment, because more overt hostility can sometimes serve as a megaphone for Christ.”

Whoever brings an affliction to us, it is God that sends it. –Thomas Watson
