Daily Links 9-13-13

Happy Friday! Among today's links: the power of five words, why David McCullough writes on a typewriter,


5 Words vs. 5 Lies:

2 Timothy 3:16 says, “All Scripture is God-breathed.” That’s not the whole verse, but those five words say enough to meditate on for a lifetime. The fact that the words of Scripture are the words of God Himself is significant. And I think those five words, “All Scripture is God-breathed,” help us fight some of the lies that we sometimes believe about the Bible.


Why David McCullough writes on a typewriter:
I write on an old Royal typewriter, a beauty! I bought it secondhand in 1964, before I started  The Johnstown Flood, and I’ve written all my books on it. It was made about 1941 and it works perfectly. I have it cleaned and oiled about once every book and the roller has to be replaced now and then. Otherwise it’s the same machine. Imagine—it’s more than fifty years old and it still does just what it was built to do! There’s not a thing wrong with it.
