Perhaps most importantly, when we challenge our colleagues and students to use their learning to serve others, we give them a gift more valuable than any diploma: we teach them how to love. — Bethany Bear, English Professor, Scholar’s Compass.

With the Fall 2014 addition of the rich offerings of Scholar’s Compass, the Emerging Scholars Network (ESN) has truly deepened in ways which are not quantifiable. Just yesterday a friend shared with me over an informal coffee shop conversation how much he appreciates ESN’s posts. He keeps pace not only for personal enrichment, but also to forward relevant ones to his son (who is engaged in academic endeavors). Such sharing of the bounty (individually and through larger structures such as campus ministry Facebook walls) and engaging/clarifying conversation is what places January 2015 not far behind March 2013 (remember March Madness 2013: Best Christian Book of All Time?) as the most visited month in ESN blog history (launched August 2008).

Not wanting you to miss the opportunity to read and bless others with This Month’s Most Read Posts, I’ve included them below. As time permits this weekend, I encourage you not only to enjoy/share the wealth of the blog, but also to join the steady stream of people

To God be the glory!

And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ – to the glory and praise of God.Philippians 1:9-11
