  • Highlights

    I’ve started reading one of Francis Chan’s latest books, Erasing Hell. The Kindle edition is free right now, so grab it while it’s available.

    While reading it through Kindle, I discovered a neat feature. The app underlined passages that were popularly highlighted. For instance, 506 (now 507) people have highlighted this part of the book:

    Don’t believe something just because you want to, and don’t embrace an idea just because you’ve always believed it. Believe what is biblical. Test all your assumptions against the precious words God gave us in the Bible.

    And 450 people highlighted the following:
