The Hidden Life of Prayer: The Lifeblood of the Christian is free from Christian Audio. After selecting the book enter HLOP12 in the coupon code. This is a wonderful book about prayer.

I have a thing for long 19th century Russian novels. This year for the second time I worked through Brothers Karamazov. I also read Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment and Notes From the Underground. Brothers and Crime are both well worth the read. Right now The Insulted and Injured is $2.99 in the Kindle format. I hear it is a good story and a new translation. It might be a worthy summer project.

I realize that we can’t use the Mosaic Law to ban tattoos. That said, the practice ought to be thought about from a Christian perspective. Why should we tattoo our bodies as believers? Here is a piece that calls believers to at least think about the issue.

Finally, as you’ve probably recently heard, according to Gallup only 41% of Americans are pro-choice. Here Owen Strachan helps us think about what this should mean for believers. Here’s a quote:

For most Christians, fighting abortion is not about power.  It is not about personally inaugurating Christ’s kingdom.  It is about speaking up for the least of these in a profoundly Christocentric way.  Psalm 139 matters; the fight for righteousness mapped out in the Beatitudes matters (Matthew 5).
