The Driscolls and Real Marriage: Tim Challies has shared some wise thoughts about the soon-to-be-released book on marriage and sex by Mark and Grace Driscoll. Among other things, he points out the inadequacy of an ethic that works from the assumption that whatever is not expressly forbidden in Scripture is 'lawful', and fails to provide any coherent theological guidance for how we might answer the question about what is 'helpful' (to use the language of 1 Cor. 6:12) and what glorifies God. You can read Challies' first post here, and his second, here.

Constantine Defended - Michael Jensen writes about a new perspective on Constantine in Peter Leithart's book, Defending Constantine – The Twilight of Empire and the Dawn of Christendom: "Leithart seeks to defend Constantine as a historical figure from the charges of using Christianity out of manipulative cynicism; and also to defend him as a model of Christian politics." Dave bought me this book last Christmas, and while I haven't finished reading it I've been loving it so far.
