Even just the title of this book flies my heart straight to Jesus, kindling afresh my desire to see him as he is. I’m reminded each day that only God’s strength can sustain and empower me for service, yet I’m tempted to desire worldly strength. JI Packer’s new book, Weakness is the Way: Life with […]

When I was in college I nearly lost an eye in a construction accident. A bunch of us from church were smashing our clumsy thumbs as we hammered framing nails to build a house for a low-income family. A co-laborer’s stray framing nail ricocheted off the wood and through the air, piercing through my right […]

Review by Lindsey Carlson Can I have a word with you? Those words always make my skin crawl. Not because I’m anti-social, but because I instinctively think I’m about to get in trouble.

These articles and chapters focused on things like bathing suits, movies, wedding dresses, and lipstick. And none of the articles ever began like this book does: “In the pages that […]
