Recommended Readings: August 15-21

harvardIf you’re busy (or, like me, on “vacation”) and only have time to read one article this week, engage The Perils of “Preferred Peers” by George Weigel.

For those of you with additional reading time this weekend, check out the following selections below, gleaned from around the interwebs. As always, if you think there is something else that I should have recommended, feel free to let me know in the comments section below. Happy reading!
