Top Reads This Week (5/24 – 5/30)
This is something I've been thinking of doing for some time and I'm going to give it a go this week. Starting at the beginning of each week I'm going to schedule this post for Saturday mornings and just add links of things that I enjoyed reading online over the week. Perhaps there is a tinge of vanity in this, but the idea is that if you like what I write here perhaps you'll enjoy what I'm reading elsewhere.
A Mound of Pink Cotton Balls: Douglas Wilson
Another of many insightful posts by Wilson concerning the "homo-jihad." For macro-level cultural engagement with keen Biblical wisdom you can't go wrong with Wilson.

Arousal Addiction: Peter Leithart
In this post Leithart presents some quotations from and analysis of Philip Zimbardo's book Man (Dis)Connected. Zimbardo's book is about the impact of video games and pornography on masculinity. In this brief post Leithart draws out some important quotations along with some brief analysis.
5 Ways My Christian Parents Prepared Me For College: Joffre Swait (Joffre the Giant)
Some good thoughts about "faith crisis" that often happen to Christians when they go off to college. Warning Joffre uses the "S" word (sheltering).
