Best Links of the Week
I am starting a new installment of this blog for the best links of the week. They will typically be in accordance with the major topics discussed here (theology, philosophy, culture, economics, and politics). Depending on how many good articles were out on the net, the number of links will vary. Enjoy.
1. “Graduate School in the Humanities: Just Don’t Go“: controversial, informative, and lucid look at the current status of graduate school humanities programs and the dysfunctionality of finding work thereafter.
2. MSNBC article on Matt Chandler’s battle with cancer – there are some strange things about this story involving him punching a healthcare provider… Also excellent is a year old article by John Piper entitled, “Don’t Waste Your Cancer.”
3. Previously mentioned article by pro-choice Sally Jenkins (Washington Post) defending Pam/Tim Tebow’s Superbowl Ad.
4. “Haiti Three Weeks Later“: absolutely stirring images from the Boston Globes excellent photo-essay segment “The Big Picture.”
5. Pew Survey on Social Networking: Teens Love Facebook, Hate Blogging, Are Always Online, and Don’t Use Twitter
6. Newsweek on the ineffectiveness of Anti-Depressants. Not sure I share the conclusions, but interesting article.
7. “A Christian Nation“: article exploring relationship between Christianity and pop-culture and how we are highly marketed to. There are weaknesses to the author’s argumentation but interesting nonetheless to get an outsiders view of Christianity and pop-culture.
8. “Should Conan, Goldman Sachs send megabucks to Haiti?“: Interesting proposal.
9. “The Rise of the Calvinists“: article exploring Scott Brown’s theological convictions as a member of a CRC church.
