Flotsam & Jetsam (7/19)

A Book GiveawayInto the Book – a Christian book review site which I recently started contributing to – is hosting its first book giveaway. If you’re interested (or know someone who is), click the link to check it out.

And Another… – For the month of July, Persis is giving away a copy of Don’t Call It A Comeback, edited by Kevin DeYoung. It looks like an awesome read.

Captain America: The First Avenger – It hits theatres this weekend, and if it’s even half as good as the trailer promises… it’s gonna be downright awesome.

What If P.G. Wodehouse Wrote Star Wars? – This clever piece is just too good to pass up.

The Great Commandment (Pt. 1) – The first of a new series of posts from Michael Wright.

Something Good At Huffpo – Good stuff from Phil Johnson. “Just as the material universe reflects the order and arrangement of a far Greater Intelligence, the intellectual climate of the world today (including the religious world) reflects the chaos that is the inevitable fruit of sin.”

Factual Monday – From Gregg.

Reel Quick – Click to read my review of Edward Zwick’s Defiance (2008), a war film based on the heroic lives of the Bielski brothers.

  1. Thanks for the giveaway links especially, Corey! :D Who can resist a good book giveaway?!

    The P.G. Wodenhouse dialougue was pretty funny, even though I know almost nothing about StarWars (except the phrase “I find your lack of faith disturbing” ;) ), I found this a bit ‘disturbing’ however. The line “And may the force be with you.”~ Is that prevailent in StarWars? Because that’s what witches say when they part. *scratches head* Maybe it’s just a coincidence, but I happened to notice it. :sigh: Maybe I’m oversensitive to things like that. :)

      1. Yeah. “The occult “May the Force be with you” was a common witchcraft greeting before George Lucas wrote Star Wars. Today, because of Star Wars, the greeting is used far more often. Christian author Pastor David J. Meyer, once a practicing witch, is one of the sources for the true meaning of “May the Force be with you.” He wrote: “When real witches have sabats and esbats and meet as a coven, they greet each other by saying “Blessed be”, and when they part, they say “The Force be with you.”
