Somebody Better Than Me (Mike Glenn)

I had a long dinner conversation with my friend, Mike Glenn, Wednesday evening, when I was in Nashville to speak at New Room. This post is the kind of wisdom I have come to learn from Mike every time we are together.  Most parents have experienced the humbling moment of realizing they can’t beat their […]

Why Care? (RJS)

Why should we care about the church fathers? After all, they lived a long time ago; they weren’t inspired; they had limited knowledge and perspective when it came to ancient history. Craig Allert, in his new book Early Christian Readings of Genesis One, opens by considering this question. There are several good reasons for us […]

1 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; 2 But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father. 3 Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:

Not long ago I posted on the loss of the evangelical soul, a post in part stimulated by the tone of conversations I am witnessing on FB. Everybody’s a prophet these days and thinks so because, so they think, they are speaking truth to power. They’re not. They’re yelling in a barrel full of self-appointed […]

The Term “Evangelical”: More Thoughts

Not long ago I posted this: It’s time to bury the word “evangelical.” It’s both past time to bury it but it’s also time yet again to bury it. I stand by that more today than even when I posted it. The term is now useless. Roy Moore lost but the vote in Alabama proved […]
