    The Augustine article was very good… the Athanasius article, not so much. Of course I might be exercising the deep memory of grading essays!

    Russia blocks Orthodox “Christian” site.

    The sites blocked are heretical. Fordham University’s program for so-called Orthodox studies and the blog Public Orthodoxy promote many odious left-wing causes. I know people will say that freedom of speech is sacred, but not all cultures believe this.

    I love the article about the history of Bible printing (specifically the KJV) in America. I came to faith through reading a Bible (an RSV, but I was very familiar with the KJV from Sunday School). I started at the beginning the summer I was 11 (how else do you read a book?) and slogged my way through, reading at least one chapter a day. At some point, I skipped ahead to the New Testament and read a chapter of it each day, too. After about three years, and a big kick in the spiritual pants from the book of Romans, I realized what Christianity was about and received Christ as Savior and Lord. And, yes, I was kind of a nerdy kid. (The church I attended growing up did not preach the deity of Christ).

    All that to say that we as American Christians (U.S. and Canadian) sometimes lose sight of what a blessing we have in so many versions and types of Bibles available to use, many in low-cost formats. You can even check one out free in most local libraries. That’s not counting phone apps, which may not appear as holy to some, but in the developing world, where cell phones abound, it’s a great and cheap way to evangelize people in the local language (according to my friends from India who have translated the New Testament in several local languages and all have been made available as apps).

    I have several English Bibles in a few different versions, two in Spanish (my other language), and an ESV app that I read everyday. I appreciate all of them and am thankful that they are a part of the American landscape. Now if we can just get more people to read them!
