Over this week I have compiled several articles and blogs that I have found really interesting. I thought that I would start a new weekly blog posts on Saturday mornings that shared the most interesting things I have read from the inter webs the week before. Below you can find the links and a short description of some really great reads!
This was a great article over at the Federalist about the self-centered nature of Oprah and her gang of self-empowerment gurus.
Over at The Ordinary Pastor the theme of autonomy is addressed in the ways it impacts our view of authority in American Christianity.
One of my favorites, Ken Myers, shows up in an unlikely place (9 Marks) to give some extremely insightful thoughts on whether certain forms of music have intrinsic meaning.
In his typical manner, Douglas Wilson addresses the Bundy Ranch situation in Nevada.
Over at the Colson Center Peter Leithart asks the question of whether Shakespeare was a Christian and looks at how Shakespearian tragedy compares with Aristotle’s definition of tragedy in Poetics (this has English nerd written all over it!)
Another gem from Peter Leithart on Biblical typology over at the Trinity House Institute’s website.
Eric Erickson addresses Bloomberg’s comments on buying his way into heaven over at Red State with some great analogies.
N.T. Wright has a wonderful piece on the reality of Palm Sunday still up over on ABC.com’s religion section. It’s well worth the read!
If you’re a college football fan and live in the South you won’t want to miss this one! An absolutely stunning piece on the nature of buying football recruits! (There is some language throughout.)
Rod Dreher has some good thoughts on the nature of the Law over on his blog at the American Conservative.
I read about halfway through this long article before it got a little wordy. All that being said, the first half that I did read was really interesting on the nature of the over diagnosis of ADHD in elementary aged school boys.
Enjoy the reading and here’s a thoughtful cartoon for you on your way out!
