Saturday's Mini Codices

From now on Ι'm going to share a list of interesting things every Wednesday and Saturday. Think of something roughly similar to Tim Challies "A La Carte".

I've already posted Wednesday's installment, now here are the featured blips on the radar screen for Saturday..

  • The Way Back Machine is very useful when you want to see what a web site looked like or what content it had back in time. It is accessible from the front page.

  • Check out the blog of Douglas Groothuis. Doug left some feedback on my blog one day, and shortly after I was looking at the Philosophy section in Chapters and I found his book "On Jesus" there. I thought that was cool!

  • If you haven't discovered it yet, you should listen to the Men of Whom The World Was Not Worthy series on by John Piper. It covers John Owen, Charles Spurgeon, John Newton, etc.

  • For those interested in 1930's films, has Rogues Tavern, The Man Who Knew Too Μuch, Shadows Over Shanghai, and Chinatown After Dark

  • For bloggers that use blogging software that doesn't natively support category tags, there is a web-based technorati tag generator.

  • A mockumentary is a fictitious and satirical documentary.

  • I'm seriously considering reading's scan of "Mistakes of modern infidels : or, Evidences of Christianity : comprising a complete refutation of Colonel Ingersoll's so-called Mistakes of Moses, and of objections of Voltaire, Paine, and others against Christianity". For more information, see the summary. It does look interesting!! Besides the interesting subject matter, it is also interesting in that it was published in Detroit and dedicated to someone from London, Ontario!

  •'s scan of "The wars of religion in France, 1559-1576; the Huguenots, Catherine de Medici and Philip II" also looks interesting. Samuel Froehlich (who founded the ACC) was a descendant of Huguenots who fled France.

  • If you haven't noticed, a lot of todays blips are from It's really a fine project that has a plethora of stuff!!
