What Do You Listen To When You Write?

Scribe Reccommends

1 Peter 3:14-15 The Message.

"Through thick and thin, keep your hearts at attention, in adoration before Christ, your Master. Be ready to speak up and tell anyone who asks why you're living the way you are, and always with the utmost courtesy."

The italics and the blue coloring are mine, for emphasis.

Wayne Batson started me thinking with his post about Atheism and then of course after digging around forever I managed to remember that scripture. At work, we have a display set up to help people better understand their faith so that they can share it with others.

With Ben Stien's Expelled coming out in theaters we have had people asking for books on Apologetics and Intelligent Design as well as requests for other formats covering the same things (ie DVD and CD) so I thought I would post my own recommendations here for anyone who is interested in this topic.

Hi, Scribe

Where you been? We've missed you.

I'm praying for you. Hope things are okay, or, if they're not, that you're clinging to the Master's robe.
