Both from Patheos.com:
C. S. Lewis on Mere Liberty and the Evils of Statism by David Theroux, and
On the Dire Need for the Imitation of Christ, by Timothy Dalrymple.
Two discoveries from the Catholic side of the Christian web:

The first wave of Christian bloggers, among them Mark D. Roberts, John Mark Reynolds, Joe Carter and Albert Mohler –each of whom presented at the first GodBlog Con at Biola many years ago– set a very high bar, but new and amazingly talented believers are following them with more and more superb witness, scholarship, commentary and resources.
When anyone is tempted to denounce the internet age for its many and obvious drawbacks, they need to reflect on how abundant are the opportunities to communicate the Gospel to the world and how many talented laborers there are doing just that who, even a decade ago, could not have dreamed of the audience they can now reach daily.
BTW: Joe Carter’s “20 worst Christians of all time” is a wonderful ricochet off of the 25 worst figures in American history discussion rolling around the web.
