I liked Carl Trueman’s article “Why Pro-Abortion Activists Desecrate Churches.”
I liked, and have enjoyed reading, Michael Allen Gillespie’s book The Theological Origins of Modernity.
- According to Gillespie, to understand modernity we must “look behind the veil that modernity itself has drawn to conceal its origins. The origins of modernity therefore lie not in human self-assertion [as some argue] or in reason [as others contend] but in the great metaphysical and theological struggle that marked the end of the medieval world and that transformed Europe in the three hundred years that separate the medieval and the modern worlds” (12).
I liked Ray Ortlund’s blog “Why I Got Out of Twitter.”
Here’s my favorite part:
I will miss interacting with my Twitter friends. You know who you are, and you’re magnificent. But friendship is at its best face-to-face. Wherever you are, God has given you true friends. As Shakespeare wisely urged us, “Grapple them unto thy soul with hoops of steel!”
So why not call a friend right now and tell them how much they mean to you?
