Some Interesting Links

Links.jpgRather than write my own post on the Yankees' failure to resign Joe Torre, here's a link to an essay with which I whole heartedly concur.  Click here: - Writers - Jon Heyman: Despite fair offer, Torre knew it was time to go - Thursday October 18, 2007 9:03PM

I am an avid Civil War buff, so when Allen Guelzo (author of a great book on Lincoln, Redeemer President) offers his list of the five best books on the Civil War, you can bet I'll check it out.  I guess I'll need to get out my credit card, since I don't own any of them!  Click here: My Top 5 Books on the Civil War | Christianity Today | A Magazine of Evangelical Conviction

I was encouraged when I saw this header:  Willow Creek Repents?  (Click here: Willow Creek Repents...)  But alas, it is not all good news.  As Scott Clark points out, it is one thing to repent of what doesn't work, it is quite another to do what is biblical (Click here: - The Heidelblog (Scott Clark) - - Was the Program-Driven Church A Mistake?)

I'm not going to touch this one with a stick. Click here: Is this Pope John Paul II waving from beyond the grave? Vatican TV director says yes | the Daily Mail.  Its been all over the net, but just look at the pictures and draw your own conclusions.

Finally, how about an Islamic-themed comic book series featuring "Mumita the Destroyer" and "Jabbar the Powerful."  You can find it here:  Click here: Islamic-themed comics come to Chicago :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Metro & Tri-State.  If evangelicals can do it, why can't Muslims?

A fair offer to Joe Torre...(hmpf!)

This is the problem the rest of the country has with the Yankees. It's not necessarily the team itself...although sometimes it can be!...but it's the attitude of the owner and fans that nothing that happens before October 1 matters. A season that they don't win the World Series is considered a failure. It doesn't matter that Torre has skippered the team to twelve straight post-seasons. It doesn't matter that Torre skippered the team to four World Series wins. If he doesn't get the team to the World Series, he's jettisoned with the rest of the trash. The egotism is simply insufferable!!

Torre doesn't need the aggravation any more. Good for Joe. Look at what managing in Boston has done to Tito's health...Joe got out while he was still alive.

Re: Civil War

I'm curios to read "the America Civil War" as he claims that it's the "finest single-volume survey of the Civil War". I've long considered "Battle Cry for Freedom" to own that title.

Re: Pope waving from beyond the grave:

As you would expect, there are alternative explanations for "Catholic" phenomena that go under advertised. Here's just one....

Re: Civil War

Guelzo's book is the best I've read on Lincoln's faith. Harry Stout has a new book out: "A Moral History of the Civil War." The most interesting part was his contrast of the views of Charles Hodge vs. Dabney on the issue of the war and slavery.

Kim you state "I'm not going to touch this one with a stick," but then why do post about it? Obviously there is an agenda here to intentionally degrade Catholics instead of holding a real conversation. You (intellectually, academically and personally) are above tactics like these. If you are serious about having a real dialog or conversation I invite you and your readers over to my blog and post entitled - That which divides Protestants from Catholics.

(thwacking forehead)

Are you kidding? The Vatican News reported:

"Father Cielecki said he was convinced the picture showed the former pontiff.

"You can see the image of a person in the flames and I think it is the servant of God, Pope John Paul II," he said.

Any flack Rome gets is consequence to their own poor theology.

Some may interpret the pope is "pulling a Daniel." But Kim has frequently taught, references to "fire" in Holy Scripture are judgment motiffs. Get it? Fire = BAD!

This is no time for humor or mockery. I'm afraid for those who look to the fiery pope as a sign of hope. (Matt. 7)

Re: Muslim comic books

As an avid comic book reader I'm not surprised. Virgin's publishing arm is producing comics based on Hindu / Indian mythology (much like Marvel's Thor, Ares, Hercules, etc. are based on Greek mythology).

Christ is in our midst!

Guys and gals - when you are serious about having a real dialog about what really divides Cathlics from Protestants let me know. Come and see my blog where serious and hard questions are often asked.

This topic of what some think they saw/see in a picture of a fire is not one of them.

Once again Kim - you can do better. Follow your better nature... That which comes out on the WHI. I have no problem talking about issues which highlight our differences. Issues such as nature and grace, anthropology, etc.
