Weekend Reading: August 6, 2016

Good morning!  Unfortunately, this is going to be an extremely abbreviated version of the weekend reading – not due to lack of content, but due to the fact that I’m in the midst of a two-day golf tournament with my brother, and only have a limited amount of time (we’re having a great time, by the way! – it helps when he hits the ball 350 yards off the tee…).  On that note, here’s what I read and saw and listened too…

After a drama-filled week for Trump, he finally says he’ll endorse Paul Ryan.  I have no idea why he decided to do this. He had already shot himself in the foot big time, why not simply stand on “principle”?  I’ll tell you why – because this man switches his positions on every issue more than he changes his clothes.  But at least he’ll do some big tax cutting (until that’s unpopular).

Okay, that’s all I’m doing from a commentary perspective.  The man just blows my mind.  Normally I’d just blame campaign staffers, but this one is all him.

Speaking of Trump, this was interesting to me – I don’t think there’s anything wrong with what Ivanka did, in fact its cool that she has her own line of clothes.

Last week I posted about how Wayne Grudem made the moral case for voting for Trump. Others have been making the opposite case since.  After talking with folks, and getting a lot of feedback, I might have to write something more extensive on Grudem’s column because I think he’s right in some aspects, but dead wrong in others.

Wow: Donald Trump was rescued from a stuck elevator by Colorado Springs firefighters. Then he called out the fire marshal.

Take note you bibliophiles: THE BROTHERS KARAMZOV is the free audio book of the month over at ChristianAudio.com

Bravo to Tim Challies for this little gem: Jane Austen’s Prayer.  AND, for guys like Jim B. who, like me, loves the wry and witty writing of Austen, you’ll want to check this book out.
