Recommended Reading: December 17

SLUIf you read one article this week, look at The Dangers of Echo Chambers on Campus by Nicholas Kristof.

For those of you with additionally reading time this weekend, check out the following selections, gathered from around the blogging world. I will be taking a blogging break the next couple of weeks (though the Scripture in the Apologists series will continue to run), so this will be the last “Recommended Readings” of 2016. Enjoy!
