The Best Bookstores in the World - Happy Browsing

The BBC & Lonely Planet just published this wonderful article on the top 10 bookstores in the world. For those of you in the southern California area there is a wonderful little bookshop that specializes in Theological books. It is the Archives, if you go there make sure to keep a limit on what you will spend, because without one you'll be in trouble.

Church on the Street

One of my good friends from the University of Aberdeen is leading an incredible ministry to the 'least of these'. We MUST learn from him. If we, academics and students, continue to fear or disregard the homeless we will never see God. Lord give us eyes to see.

Great work, Andy!
