  1. I’ve finally reviewed the excellent MORE: Truth by Kristi Mair. TLDR? Read this book if you have any interest in ‘truth’.
  2. The Gospel Coalition has an interesting article, ‘Yes, Bring Commentaries to Bible Study‘. TLDR? Agree or disagree with the title.

  4. Jon Kurht wrote a great blogpost about ‘Actually Reading the Bible‘. TLDR? We all want to do it, here are some ideas.
  5. Walter Moberly’s The Bible in a Disenchanted Age is awesome, if unintentionally hilarious. TLDR? Proper bible scholar schools Dawkins.
  6. We’ve all heard that Boris has friends who will make money out of Brexit. But is it true? TLDR? Read this article.

  10. Adam Mabry, author of ‘The Art of Rest‘ has a great blog post about language of ‘s/he has a spirit of’. TLDR? It’s not biblical, so read this article.
