Today’s Kindle deals include two classics that will be at home in any Christian’s library.

 Man in the Middle

“David Dockery, president of Trinity International University, knows the feeling of exhaustion. His wife, Lanese, gave birth to their three boys in three years. While he was president at Union University, one student shot another, and an EF4 tornado tore through while half of the students were on campus. But the most emotionally exhausting day in his life came on January 24, 1992.” Sarah Eekhoff Zylstra explains…

For The Church, With The Church

My thanks goes to Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary for sponsoring the blog this week.

No one ever said at the end of his course that he had been too holy and lived too near to God. —J.C. Ryle
