New today from the Century:

    • Ben Dueholm on civil religion at Gettysburg: "Lincoln turned toward the philosophical case for abolition for the same reason Roosevelt turned toward the Four Freedoms: so much death could not be allowed to leave the world untransfigured."
    • MaryAnn McKibben Dana on preaching it like Lincoln: "In the Gettysburg Address, we see the classic preacher's conundrum: the call to put words around that which is ineffable. Can we do it in 272 words?"
    • Beth Felker Jones on Don Jon: "Don Jon is not about a porn addict saved by a good woman. It's about the unhealthy collision of two people who are ready only for broken relationships." (subscription required)
