Black Hole Unravels

You may have noticed by now that I have a lot of ideas to share in hopes that someone else writes them up. 🙂 The trend continues. I want to see someone write Big Bang Unravels.

I’ve come into possession of a rather large amount of the pamphlet/booklet, Why God’s Word is All We Need by Gene Edward Veith. It was part of a series called Today’s Issues published by Crossway, and was also, in one edition or another, titled Why God Gave Us A Book.

My First Exorcism

I’m not a dark person, but I do think that Christians in particular should remember that darkness, evil, and the devil are very real. (I’ll let you in on a neat something I heard: never capitalize names for devil. He doesn’t deserve it.) So, today I’ll add another review to my growing list on that topic: My First Exorcism: What the Devil Taught a Lutheran Pastor about Counter-cultural Spirituality by Lutheran Rev. Dr. Harold Ristau, foreword by Lutheran Rev. Dr. John W. Kleinig.

I meant to write a review today, but I was working up two lengthy poems, typing and tweaking them into Word. Well, my computer ate my poems and now I’m super sad and disappointed! I’ll get back to you with that review—I actually have two reviews I hope to post this week. Sigh.

Sigh with me, folks.
