Terrific quote from Ray Ortlund’s brilliant blog: “I have many an old book in my library in which there have been bookworms, and I have sometimes amused myself with tracing a worm.  I do not know how he gets to the volume originally, but being there he eats his way into it.  He bores a […]

Mr. Spock sings a hobbit song. Star Trek and LOTR fans worst nightmare!

March 24, 2010

As Mr. Spock, Leonard Nimoy was committed to logic. But it seems illogical that he agreed to sing “The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins” in 1967.  Over the years, I’m sure the Star Trek star “explored new worlds” of embarrassment every time he was reminded of the groovy psychodelic madness of this music video. As if […]

The Map by David Murrow is a work of fiction, but it’s not a novel. We’ll it’s not JUST a novel. Subtitled “The Way of All Great Men,” this book starts off as a fictional account of the author on a quest. He’s in Great Britain on a speaking tour when a stranger intrigues him […]

Leprechauns in the Bible?

March 17, 2010

Would you be surprised to learn that leprechauns are mentioned in the Bible? Remember singing “Zacchaeus was a wee little man, and a wee little man was he?” Clearly, this is a reference to Ireland’s height-challenged mascots. Moses’ staff turning into a serpent?
