Jesus was clearly an Apple guy.

Is it too greedy to own an iphone & an ipad? But I have to wait ’til end of April here in Canada.

Would Jesus have his own apps? Coach Calipari here in KY has his own apps — people are buying them like crazy. Maybe you should come up with some “Jesus apps” Scot.
I can imagine Jesus’ twitters (if he would have twittered, which, of course is a large theological questiion). Here are some reimagined samples” “Crossing the Sea of Galilee, now.”, “Just cast a Demonic’s demons into some pigs.” “Uh,http://blog.beliefnet.com/jesuscreed/ leaving town now. Seems these Jews like their pigs a lot.”
OK I’ll stop. One could actually twitter a Harmony of the Gospels, it seems…

Wow! This has to be a prophetic intervention or something. I had copied a link to Scot’s blog in another location to recommend Daniel Kirk’s article to some friends, and then I copied my post before I refreshed the CAPTCHA, so I wouldn’t lose it. It remained after I refreshed, so I didn’t paste it, but just posted. When I looked back at the post, low and behold Jesus had twittered the link to Jesus Creed. Now we know that Jesus would recommend Scot’s Blog!

I received mine Saturday morning and have spent about 3 hours reading on it, which will be my main use. It is a much better experience, in my mind, than the liquid crystal devices (such as the Kindle) since the text is so crisp and clean. I found it very easy to read for extended periods.
It does need iPad designed applications. While the iPhone apps work, the experience is poor.

I have a couple of Bible reading apps on my iPhone. They are nice, but I can’t wait to see what apps for Bible reading software developers will come up with for the iPad! I plan to buy one in a few weeks when the 3G-enabled version is released.

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
