In case you didn’t notice…

July 26th, 2008 · 1 Comment

there’s some actual discussion/banter/give-and-take happening on this very blog! It is happening over in the comments on this post about Mark Driscoll’s words about the popular book, The Shack. I’m very thankful for all the comments and most of them helpful in advancing the discussion about the book. Unfortunately, I’ve not read the book yet… […]

The Dying Art of Thinking

May 13th, 2008 · Comments Off on The Dying Art of Thinking

Although I’m old enough to feel old sometimes… like yesterday (after hoops and squash on Sunday)… and today (after 40k on the bike on Monday – with a cat)… I’m not probably old enough to know for sure that Ravi Zacharias is right about The Dying Art of Thinking, although I suspect that he is. […]

Book Review: March to Victory

May 12th, 2008 · Comments Off on Book Review: March to Victory

This was a good book. I’ve had an interest in the Normandy campaign for years, but still learned some from this book. What was most valuable for me, though, was the coverage of the Italy campaign and the German/Soviet front. The book was edited by Tony Hall and he compiled a very nice group of […]

Taiwan WWII

May 10th, 2008 · Comments Off on Taiwan WWII

Patrick Cowsill has a really interesting post about POWs in Taiwan during WWII. If you remember… Taiwan was under Japanese control until the end of WWII… so the POWs were Allied forces. Patrick’s grandfather served in the Pacific and writes… Actually, my grandpa hated the war; he rarely talked about it. Same with my grandfather, […]

An Evangelical Manifesto

May 9th, 2008 · 3 Comments

As usual… the “main stream” media gets it wrong. They’ve chosen to take a political angle in reporting the recent release of An Evangelical Manifesto. Joe Carter writes at Evangelical Outpost: Indeed, every single news article focused on the political implications rather than on what it really said. Consider these headlines:      AP: Evangelical leaders […]

Rolf Potts: Traveling Mercies | Wittenburg Door

November 19th, 2007 · Comments Off on Rolf Potts: Traveling Mercies | Wittenburg Door

Hi. I’m SQJTaipei. I run this blog. If I don’t post something soon I’m in danger of having an empty NOV 2007 archive. Can’t have that. I’m sorting through virtual piles of emails and RSS feeds after my recent trip to the US and uncovered this gem over at The Wittenburg Door. Rolf Potts: Traveling […]

Your Brother Got the Extra Frosting. Deal With It.

October 3rd, 2007 · 7 Comments

That’s probably my favorite quote from this absolutely brilliant commentary by Tony Woodlief on “reality based parenting“. Of course, everyone likes to read things that they agree with… so of course I love this! There is MUCH WISDOM in this article and I’d recommend it to ANYONE. If your kids are grown and out of […]

NationStates

August 18th, 2007 · 1 Comment

I can’t remember how I found this… but it was a couple years ago probably. It looked remotely intreresting so I bookmarked it. I recently went through my bookmarks… found it… and started my own nation. It is somewhat interesting… not too much… but OK. Jennifer Government: NationStates NationStates is a nation simulation game created […]

Book review: Peace Like A River

May 26th, 2007 · 1 Comment

This is a GREAT book. I am saddened when I see such a divide between Christian and secular art. I don’t see why each can’t stand on its own… I’m not trying to criticize people and companies who run Christian bookstores… because they have filled a need… a gap in the marketplace. Why am I […]
