The Verge shows us what adverts on Instagram are going to look like. My guess is that they probably won't all be as refined as the one in the article.

Marilynne Robinson, one of my favourite writers, profiled by The American Conservative as "Christian, Not Conservative." It's got quotes from her so it's worth reading.

There's been an attention-grabbing conference in America accusing the kind of Christianity I believe in of being, basically, against God. Andrew Wilson considered and rebutted the arguments made with typical brilliance.

In America's horrifying past, Solomon Northup's 12 Years A Slave.
