New today from the Century:

  • Andrew Root reviews Christian Smith's book on young adults: "Christian Smith offers a way between the idea that young adults are the
    great hope of our nation and the idea that they are crazed idiots." (subscription required)
  • I discuss the Smiley-West-Obama situation: "Ego issues aside, one can
    think of far worse things Smiley and West could do with their celebrity than go
    on the road to drum up support for fighting poverty, a word most
    elected officials simply talk around."
  • Dora Dueck considers the merciful and their blessedness: "This is a challenge for me, and I think it’s a challenge for the
    church. What challenges me is the notion that I/we determine the
    wideness of the mercy given to me/us."
  • Lil Copan looks at artwork by John Freeman (subscription required)
