The Link 7.3.09: Keller on Raising Kids in Cities

Got alot for you today.

keller1. Here’s a helpful talk Tim Keller did on raising kids in the city.  I enjoyed his talk, which lists three cons and eight pros.  I also liked the Q&A–some great stuff came up.  It starts after roughly thirty minutes.

2. Speaking of Keller, he did a debate with Ligon Duncan on women deacons.  Derek Thomas says a word about it on Ref21.  Check that out.

3. Have you heard Leann Rimes sing Patsy Cline’s version of “Amazing Grace”?  No?  You’re missing out.

4. If you want to think more deeply about a wide range of topics, check out the webshow Uncommon Knowledge with Peter Robinson of Stanford’s Hoover Institution.  A conservative Charlie Rose.

5. Why you should read Tom Wolfe by National Review‘s John Derbyshire.  Wolfe is perhaps my favorite author.  He writes heavy, controversial stuff, but has a keen eye for human nature, sociology, and other engrossing things.  Pioneer of what’s called “New Journalism”.

6. Ted Kluck is writing what looks like a fun (if controversially titled) book on Christian music.  I’ve offered my services as “Christian Rap Consultant”.  Speaking of which, have you heard Trip Lee’s powerful “To Live Is Christ”?

Have a terrific weekend, all.
