Here's some links I've liked this week (most of which I linked to in some form or fashion on Twitter but all bear another link and another look if you're so inclined)...
Book Review: The World Tilting Gospel
I really liked this book though I never posted an official review. I agree with Rebecca's thoughts here:
The World-Tilting Gospel gives us...the whole-Bible Gospel in an energetic, easy-to-understand, earnest-but-never-preachy style. And she's giving away a copy! Click here for details.
