God’s Story: Advance Copy Arrives

Friday, December 19th, 2014

I thought a Christmas present had come in the mail yesterday, but it turned out to be something even better–an advance copy of my book, God’s Story in 66 Verses (January 6 release date). Click here for the publisher’s website for the book, or go to my own page for more info.

Thanks, Peter Guthrie, for the picture!

Dictators

Friday, December 19th, 2014

This has been a great week for dictatorships. Cuba makes no promises and gets two spies and a murderer of Americans back, along with a promise of normalized relations from Barack Obama. North Korea blackmails a studio into pulling a movie that mocks Kim Jong Un and the U.S. says nothing.

Vladimir Putin must be wondering what he must do to garner American capitulation. I hope we don’t have to find out.

Favorite Books of 2014

Thursday, December 18th, 2014

By JOHN WILSON

As usual, this list makes no pretensions to identify the “best” books, nor even to include all of those that dazzled me in the course of a year of reading. But these ARE the ones that came most readily to mind when I entered the requisite trance and began writing semi-automatically on the back of an envelope—in this case, one I’ve not opened, from the Social Security Adminstration (#theagingbrain).

Blackmail

Thursday, December 18th, 2014

North Korean blackmail has resulted in a major studio pulling a movie. How long will it be ’til a Muslim terrorist group demands that the U.S. institute sharia or face annihilation?

Laugh

Wednesday, December 17th, 2014

I think it’s safe to assume that Kim Jong Un is giving the comedy movie The Interview two thumbs down. Dictators can never laugh at themselves, and if you disagree, you may die laughing.

Force

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

Before you decide whether torture is wrong in all circumstances, please reflect on the fact that our enemies just slaughtered more than 120 boys in Pakistan this morning. Until Jesus returns, we live in an ugly world, ruled by force.

Way

Monday, December 15th, 2014

To complain that there is only one way to be saved is to misunderstand the gravity of sin and the greatness of God’s grace.

Imagine

Sunday, December 14th, 2014

Just imagine the outcry if the Sony e-mails were hacked from a conservative group. I just hope the hackers can recover Lois Lerner’s e-mails. But as my mother might have said, “If you don’t have anything good to say … don’t say it in an e-mail!”

The Torture Taboo

Saturday, December 13th, 2014

By Jonah Goldberg

The taboo against torture is important and honorable, but sometimes the real world gets a veto.
