When I preached through Jonah last Advent, I knew the JPS Commentary on Jonah would be helpful. What I wasn’t expecting was how often I would eagerly turn to Kevin J. Youngblood’s new Jonah volume in the recently begun Hearing the Message of Scripture commentary series. It might be the best commentary (in this … Continue reading Hearing the Message of Scripture: A Fantastic (the Best?) Commentary on Jonah
Nahum Sarna’s JPS Torah Commentary on Genesis is easily one of the best three commentaries I’ve read on any book of the Bible. I’d put it up there with R.T.

My friend Katie told me about this Website. “Crappy pictures” to depict parenting. Recommended if you like Honest Toddler!
Honest Toddler (which I’ve blogged about perhaps too much already) has a Twitter that I just found out about. Much more frequent than the blog posts, and just as funny. Check it out here, in celebration of Family Friday!
