Ever wonder about Angels? Monday, Feb 8 2010 

What are angels? What is their role in God’s plan? Are they present? Do they appear? Do they give us personal insight about our work, our worship? Many contemporary beliefs about angels are based on misconception and myth. Dr. David Jeremiah uses scripture to unveil the remarkable truth about these agents of heaven, and their role and work in our world—and lives. More than 60,000 units of this powerful book have sold in two past editions. This repackage of the original 1996 paperback will surely capture the attention of readers of all ages who seek a broad and thorough survey of scripture that clearly separates fact from fiction as it relates to angels. The book will appeal to the thousands who follow Dr. Jeremiah’s books, and radio and TV broadcasts. Relevant, little known biblical facts help readers sharpen their knowledge and sensitivities toward the spiritual reality of angels. Dr. Jeremiah’s enlightening findings are supported with illustrations and insights from Billy Graham, Corrie ten Boom, C.S. Lewis, and more.

Notes! iPhone + Books Thursday, Feb 4 2010 

I was reading Eating Animals today and found a line that I really wanted to highlight, however it is not my book! I took a picture of the text with my iPhone and was really impressed with how clear the picture came out, even in bad lighting and riding on a train! I have been on a quest trying to find a good application that I can use on my phone to take pictures of text that I would otherwise highlight so that I can save it for future reference and to spark my memory.

Does anyone have any thoughts? I found a couple good apps that I look forward to trying, including Evernote (evernote.com) and Babelshot. This post triggered some great responses from the readers:
