GOD’S QUARTERBACK? SERIOUSLY?!?! “Tim Tebow: God’s Quarterback.”
HARRY TRUMAN, DEFENDED: “The Least Evil Option.” It’s an apologetic for the two A-bombs Truman dropped on Japan.
iPAD CHURCHES: “Churches Adopt Technology To Reach Out To Congregants.” I preached from my iPad once. Then I switched back to paper notes. I may try it again, however.

Given the strong families this show depicts, one might think FFA would be sympathetic to these American Muslims. But it’s off on an anti-Islamist rant. Look, I’ve seen the show. Those people aren’t Islamists, okay?
PREDESTINATION: “A good (relatively new book about predestination.”
