Tim Keller in The Washington Times

The Washington Times article recognizes what a distinct, reasonable, civil and disarming voice Keller's is, especially today where it seems it's impossible to engage with differing convictions without belittling and disdaining.

Clearly there is a need for a voice like his. Tim Keller's book, The Reason For God, hit the NYT Bestseller list one month after it was published.

Jago canvas of the Storybook Bible

Jago (drum roll please), the fabulous illustrator of the run away bestseller, The Jesus Storybook Bible, has figured out how to get prints of his illustrations (that are done on computer but don't look like it because he uses an ultra top secret technique*) printed onto canvas so that now they look like oil paintings. Yes, he has.

AND (another drum roll please) some very clever people have bought one: from left to right, it's Lily Grace (3 1/2), Noah (7), Lindsey (5 1/2), Ben and Mary Kate—the brilliant and proud owners of Jago's inaugural transatlantic canvas from the book! (The illustration is from The Big Picnic showing Jesus and the little boy.)

(* As he puts it: "I work almost entirely digitally, using a secret blend of the finest textures, papers and digital paints. I could tell you how I make each picture, but then I'd have to kill you." )
