The wrap

An early edition this time round.

I've been enjoying Abraham Piper's (son of John) blog, 22 Words, in which he nobly endeavours to keep all his posts to yes, you guessed it, 22 words.

An interesting short paper from the Jubilee Centre on the use of the terms "fundamentalist" and "evangelical" in the public square (especially in the UK) and a good discussion over whether Christians should drop the latter term or not.

NT scholar Darrell Bock has a good article on the orthodoxy of the early Christians when the canon of Scripture was still being formed.

Seven deadly words of book reviewing. I'm guilty of all of them! They've taken away my excuses for lazy writing now...

Washington Post reviews Tim Keller's The Reason for God.

Climate Debate Daily. A collation of the latest news and features on global warming from both sides of the debate. The twin dangers for Christians on global warming, I think, is to neglect creation care of the world "because it's too inconvenient", on the one hand, and to fall prey to a certain kind of agenda that simplifies the questions or subtly accomodates secular humanism or pantheism, on the other.

Speaking of which, this week's Time feature story, The Clean Energy Scam is a fine journalistic piece. It really does a good job capturing the delicate trade-offs that exist in the fight to preserve our environment. Do read it.

Garfield Minus Garfield. The Garfield comic strips, but with the familiar feline removed from the panels, with surprising effects. I'm a fan of Garfield, but even I recognise that the comic has long passed its heyday in the late 80s and early 90s.

The life of a hotel concierge. What it's like to be serving the mega-rich and famous.

The future of work?
