Matt Steen and Todd Rhodes are putting together an interesting concept. They are summarizing 200+ articles that you need to know as a church leader from the past thirty days. It is a subscription-based service:
Here are three of their many articles covered in August:

The first four volumes cover the books Genesis to Judges with graphic illustrations that the publisher claims will rival those of Marvel comics. The rest will be released in 2014.

- Charities Lobby to Preserve Deductions: The newly formed Faith and Giving Coalition is a group of charities who have joined forces to lobby the U.S. Senate to preserve charitable deductions as they seek to overhaul the federal tax code.
