Tiny book digest – blogs for 10.2.13
I don’t read as many books as I used to. While unpacking my books last September, some I hadn’t read, most had a bookmark partway in before it had been abandoned, a few I’d never attempted and the rest, which I had read, were mainly fiction.
Initially, I felt a little challenged. Books are good, and I know that when I read a book I find myself really inspired! Later on, I realised that I do read. A lot. It’s just that what I read isn’t in book form – they’re blog posts, online articles. And I’ve found a lot of fantastic, edifying, challenging things on the internet, and I thought maybe I’d share it with anyone else who might be interested in brief helpful bits of joy.

I simply hate life – A beautiful testimony from Tim Challies’ mother.
Follow me – “I am burdened by how we have taken the costly command of Christ to go, baptize, and teach all nations, and turned it into a comfortable call for Christians to come, be baptized, and sit in one location.”
Women on the front line – “I am not interested in risking men’s lives so I can live my selfish dream.”
An open letter to my pro-choice neighbour – A helpful read, though be wise about sharing it with pro-choice friends.
