Ordered today through

Kate Bush
Our Price: $11.98 Gift-Wrap: None
Gift Message: None $11.98

This is generally thought to be her weakest album, with the possible exception of The Red Shoes, but I love Kate enough to be a completist. If there are only two outstanding tracks I'll be satisfied.

Inspiration and Incarnation: Evangelicals and the Problem of the Old Testament
Peter Enns
ISBN: 0801027306
Our Price: $16.19 Gift-Wrap: None
Gift Message: None $16.19

American Protestantism is divided between orthodox denominations who close their eyes to the discoveries of biblical criticism, and denominations that embrace biblical criticism but abandon orthodoxy. I'd like to think a via media is possible, and this book, written by a conservative Calvinist trained at Harvard, a bastion of liberal theology, may help clear the ground for it. (Catholics don't have to worry about this problem because they base dogma, not on scripture alone, but on infallible ecclesiastical pronouncement--which may be a good reason to convert, but I'll save that for another time.)

The Introvert Advantage: How to Thrive in an Extrovert World
Marti Olsen Laney
ISBN: 0761123695
Our Price: $13.45 Gift-Wrap: None
Gift Message: None $13.45

I don't know how much stock to place in pop psychology, but I might learn a few things.

Interesting news, although I didn't like The Red Shoes so I won't get my hopes up about this latest release.
