Returning From Blog Hiatus

I’ve had a long break from posting. My wife and I had a very restful time visiting her family in northern California over Thanksgiving (discounting two brutal road trips with a few hours of heavy traffic and two children in tow). While up there I slept about 10 hours a day. Upon our return I was immediately thrown into the end of the semester push (Final Exams less than two weeks away). To my regret, I was not as enterprising as this guy who sold ads on his tests. A few odds and ends:
In other news, I’ve been really enjoying The Forgotten Man: A New History of the Great Depression by Amity Shlaes. The book is dense, full of intricate details, and it sets up the historical context very well.
I also enjoyed reading about half of one of Dr. Albert Mohler’s recent books, Desire and Deceit: The Real Cost of the New Sexual Tolerance. For the sake of full disclosure, much of the book’s content will seem familiar if you subscribe to Mohler’s blog. But it is nice to have it all together in one place, and in a logical chapter-by-chapter flow. With incision and nuance, Mohler tackles tough topics like lust, pornography, homosexuality (and the homosexual political movement), lesbians raising sons, and more.
I noticed that Mark Dever has conducted a 73 minute interview with Dr. Don Carson on observing evangelicalism. Speaking of interviews, the November 30 broadcast of the White Horse Inn features an interview of Collin Hansen by Michael Horton. Hansen is the author of Young, Restless, Reformed: A Journalist’s Journey with the New Calvinists, which I happily commend. (HT: JT, James Grant)
Albert Mohler is right to commend Mrs. Obama for prioritizing her children over professional globetrotting and the like.
