Combing the Net – 6/8/2012

Ron Paul’s Secret Weapon — I’m pretty certain Carol Paul would have been one of the most fun First Lady’s ever! Here she shows off her culinary skills for the Wall Street Journal (wearing her “End the Fed” apron, of course!) with recipes appearing in the Ron Paul Family Cookbook.

The Pauls, who are both 76 years old, have been married for 55 years, and Mr. Paul says his wife has never made a bad meal, except for a potato chip-topped tuna casserole that was never repeated.

Rudiments of Anglo-Saxon — Now this just seems like it would be a fun course to take! I’ll probably need to work on my Greek and Hebrew first, but if I ever get a hankering to speak Old English, I think I’ll turn to Douglas Wilson’s book. From the course description: “Altogether, the textbook contains enough material for thirty-two happy weeks spent ransacking the Anglo-Saxon word-hoard.

Leaders, Read Fiction! — Here are some great reasons to read fiction, and how these reasons help leaders to lead better.

Why All the Labels? — Another addition to the ongoing soteriology discussion in the SBC, this time from Voddie Baucham, pastor of Grace Family Baptist Church. While many have been questioning why people bother to identify themselves by labels such as “Calvinist” or “Arminian”, Baucham defends and affirms the use of such labels as helpful and clarifying. I agree.

The trailer for the forthcoming film based on the book of Job looks promising. Learn more about the movie here.
