Lights, camera, teach, by Beth Felker Jones. In adapting my course for video, I had to learn to bridge the distance between me and students I couldn't imagine, let alone see.
Amy Plantinga Pauw reviews Eberhard Busch's book Drawn to Freedom. In this long, freewheeling conversation with the Heidelberg Catechism, Busch sometimes uses it for leverage against distortions in the contemporary church, and sometimes challenges its assumptions.
