- Frank Honeycutt on moving down in the world: "Recently I was called from a larger church to a smaller church. It's not the usual order of things." (subscription required)
- Philip Jenkins on Indonesia and the religious clash that wasn't: "Somehow, newspapers never publish banner headlines announcing 'World's Largest Muslim State Fails to Persecute Christians.'"

- Kyle Childress reviews Diana Butler Bass, whose "new book is warm and winsome. But it lacks the particularizing power of her earlier work's grounding in stories about specific communities and people." (subscription required)
- Debra Bendis on Lucas Cranach the Elder and Steven Ozment's new book
- Steve Thorngate on memorizing the Ten Commandments
- "Psalm," a poem by Dylan Bassett
