Links: 4 January 2012

Happy New Year! Here are some links I hope you will find interesting.

I’m no animal-rights person–not by a long shot–but the economist in me appreciates this article on vegetarian meals because it forces the reader to take full account of the consequences of choices–even the hidden consequences. It’s Bastiat’s "Seen and Unseen."

Sam pointed me to this article on the function of Christian texts in an electronic age. I appreciate a good discussion of the nexus between form, medium and content.

This article about a little girl who was "born" twice raises afresh the of questions of personhood, abortion and rights. With technology changing rapidly, enabling fetal surgery and the survival of infants born even more prematurely, our society will be forced very soon to come to grips with the contemporary Holocaust. God have mercy on us all.

I was only seven when this happened, but it’s been two decades since the fall of the Soviet Union.

Finally, a 1902 article by Geerhardus Vos recommends biblical theology and anticipates the development of postmodern biblical studies in the late twentieth century–fascinating.
