(1) Nancy Reagan Remembered As Active, Devoted Member Of Bel-Air Presbyterian Church

(2) RIP: Influential Christian author and preacher Jerry Bridges (1929-2016)

(3) Paper Praising ‘Creator’ Puts Fear of God in Open-Access Giant (Chronicle of Higher Ed)

PLOS ONE, the world’s largest scientific journal, on Friday retracted an article exploring the mechanics of the human hand after scientists complained about its reverential references to the body’s design by “the Creator.”

(4) Albert Mohler says the “2016 Republican presidential race reaches level of unprecedented coarseness and crudeness

“The 2016 presidential election has indicated that America is undergoing a seismic political revolution among both Republicans and Democrats, and it is yet unknown where that political revolution is taking us. But over the last several days something has become very apparent. This particular political revolution, especially right now in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, is taking us into the sewer.”

(5) Michael Brown writes “An Open Letter to Pastor Robert Jeffress” (Charisma News)

(6) Leith Anderson and Ed Stetzer write about “Defining Evangelicals in an Election Year: A new research method could help us get beyond political stereotypes

We need to distinguish between a self-identified evangelical, a person affiliating with an evangelical denomination, or someone with classic evangelical beliefs. These describe evangelicals in different ways, and for the purpose of analysis, they create different subgroups of people. But we trust that our definition will become a useful tool for researchers to more fully understand who evangelicals are. More important, we hope that as this tool is used, more Americans will see through the unfortunate cultural and political stereotypes and recognize evangelicals as a diverse people of faith who have given their lives to Jesus Christ as their Savior.
