Angry atheists are hot authors

I’m fascinated by the twists and turns of culture. This article focuses on the topic of how hot-selling the recent books of aggressive atheist authors have become.

I think a more reasonable view of biblical faith will emerge from this season of history, and the gospel of love and our origins story will begin to poke its head up through the solid debate, or the mudslinging.

Pain, as always, is a good response of the body. It tells us “something must be attended to here, and now.”

Sheltering Mercy: Prayers Inspired by the Psalms

Sheltering Mercy, along with its companion volume, Endless Grace, helps us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. This book contains 75 prayers drawn from Psalms 1-75, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning in the Psalms. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

This artful, poetic, and classic devotional book features compelling custom illustrations and foil-stamped hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms.
