There were other things happening in the world this week besides the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing. This was saturated media coverage at its best and its worst. One aspect of the story that almost all the major media missed was religion -- and Julia Duin has the story.
It was a good week for Tolkien. Zak Schmoll talked about why we need The Lord of the Ringsnow (personally, I think it’s time the Ents went after Washington, D.C.). John Pletcher at the Institute for Faith, Work, & Economics found some Monday motivation from Tolkien. Loren Paulsson mourned the passing of the elves.
Interesting faith stories this week as well. William Black at Aeon suggests there’s a way to fight a “total work culture” – bring back the Sabbath. Thomas Kidd asks if evangelicals were really silent about Roe v. Wade when the decision was handed down. Justin Taylor looks at what an evangelical is (other than the common stereotype). Natasha Crain has 10 signs that the Christian authors you’re following are teaching unbiblical ideas. James Faris at Gentle Reformation has an old, old story about what makes an elder.
And Ann Farmer at The Imaginative Conservative has a poem – about actress Maggie Smith.

wow! I am going to have to sit back down and look up all those links later...I am intrigued. But I just noticed your new book on the side line...Dancing Prophet! Is it available in book form yet? (not Kindle). I don't do kindle, shock shock. I am a real book lover. I didn't realize you were that close to completing this new one! I must have! God bless you today. Praying for our nation. May God reveal the truth and heal our land ( I pray, I pray, I pray).
Pamela - the ebook version of Dancing Prophet is scheduled to release on Monday, Oct. 1. The link connected to the book photo takes you to the pre-order page. The paperback version should be available about Oct. 15.
