Trump: The Art of the Deal by Donald Trump (Book Review #18 of 2016)
Trump: The Art of the Deal I read this book after reading D'Antonio's biography of Trump ; which I recommend reading prior to reading anything written by Trump himself for better context. The Art of the Deal was written in 1987 and it helps to know the cont...

Six Days of War by Michael B. Oren (Book Review #104 of 2015)
Six Days of War I read this book after reading Ari Shavit's My Promised Land and Izuddin' Abuelaish's I Shall Not Hate, as well as Paul Johnson's A History of the Jews. 1967 seems to be such a pivotal moment both in Israeli and Arab psyche and had wider imp...

What I found after wading thru swamps in South Sudan: Read my column "Where the Soldiers Are Scarier Than the Crocodiles." This is one of the worst human rights situations in the world, where civilian deaths may now be greater than in Syria, and we Americans bear some responsibility to help. Please read and share:  http://www.nytimes.com/2016/03/13/opinion/sunday/where-the-soldiers-are-scarier-than-the-crocodiles.html

Sermon of the Week: Christians and Gun Control. Andy Stanley's "Tough as Nails" series (2/14 - 2/20, 2016)
Tough as Nails "Uncertainty is unavoidable. Being fearful is optional." This four-part sermon series is, I believe, the first I have heard that is intentionally "meta." I bet most in the North Pointe audience wouldn't recognize it, but Stanley is very cleve...

Google+ just sent me a notice that I am posting things that violate their TOS. I don't know if someone flagged one of my book reviews or what. My blog automatically posts to G+. Whatever.

Podcast of the Week (2/6 - 2/13, 2016) NPR's Intelligence Squared Debate: "Should the U.S. let in 100,000 Syrian Refugees?"
Intelligence Squared is one of my favorite podcasts. Two teams of experts hash it out and answer questions before a live audience who votes on the question before and after the debate. Whichever team moves the needle the most to their side, wins. http://int...
