Dear Readers,

Sorry for the silence over the last few months. In addition to trying to work on two new books (neither of which I have done nearly as much work on as I would have liked), life has just been generally busy as I continue to apply for full-time jobs, parent my children, and try to keep the house relatively clean. So, here is a list of my top posts from 2016. If I get inspired (yes, I’m only posting this because currently I am physically exhausted and can’t seem to come up with a topic to write about), I may do another post today. If not, feel free to read these older gems from the past year.

Top 10 (From Least to Most Popular)

9. #Foodporn, #Wordporn: Gratuity, Beauty, and Pornography

8. Lewis among the Evangelicals: Trying to Understand why a Catholic Leaning, Tobacco Smoking, Alcohol Drinking Brit Is So Popular Amongst Evangelicals

Sincerely,
David
