- Monday, December 03, 2007
So when Noël and I went to Barnes & Noble on Monday to buy a birthday present, I had my usual coldwater bath of awareness that there are thousands of voices competing to be heard by the world. Miles, it seems, of shelves with every imaginable worldview, all clamoring for the mind and the heart (and many other parts of the human body and soul). The God Delusion, You on a Diet, Jim Cramer’s Mad Money: Watch TV Get Rich, He-motions: Even Strong Men Struggle; The Machines of War—a tidal wave of titles.

Jesus was born for this. “For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world—to bear witness to the truth.” Let’s join him in it. Let’s make
He was born to bear witness to the truth. Let’s resolve this Christmas that we will live for this.
Devoted to spreading the Truth, with you,
