“Man in Black” and “Hurt,” by Johnny Cash

A growing cadre of kids out there are frankly bored by Lady Gaga’s latest attempt to shock American sensibilities. What they are shocked by instead is this gravelly-voiced man, telling them, from beyond the grave, what they already suspect—the shallow kingdoms of this age are headed for a stunning collapse.

“Underneath the Door,” by Michael Card

I’ve written here before about what an influence the singer-songwriter Michael Card has had on my life and theology. In this week’s episode, Mike joins me in the studio to talk about the only song of his that I don’t like.

Why You Should Read Barry's novel: "Hannah Coulter"

Some think that fiction is wrong because it’s “not true.” Hardly! I read more fiction than I do non-fiction, if you exempt the Bible from consideration, and I consider it, most often, truer than anything in the world.

An Open Letter to an Unborn Baby

An adopting couple's pastor asked if I’d write a letter to their soon-to-be-adopted boy, for when he’s old enough to start asking questions about his adoption and what it means. I’ve changed his name, but this is what I wrote.

Good News for Russia’s Orphans

The orphans of the world, whether in Russia or India or Alabama, are among the most vulnerable imaginable. And Jesus has identified the “least of these” as His brothers and sisters (Matt. 25:40). When we care for them, we care for Him.

Midnight in Paris and the Pull of Nostalgia

If the opening chapters of the Book of Ecclesiastes were to take on flesh, the result would be something like Woody Allen. And now the angst-ridden filmmaker is back with a new movie, Midnight in Paris.

Children’s Curriculum That’s Not Afraid of Blood

Children’s Sunday School literature in American evangelicalism is often bloodless and boring. But there’s good news out there, and here’s one example.

Are You Smarter Than Anthony Weiner?

What we need is not intelligence, but wisdom. Wisdom includes seeing where the way I want to go will lead.

Adoption, Identity, and Kung-Fu Panda

We all face them, but for children who’ve been adopted, there’s often a special sense of helplessness in the face of the "who am I?" and "why?" questions.

I’m a Complementarian Man With an Egalitarian Wife; Can I Pastor?

The call to ministry is almost all-encompassing, and it engulfs an entire family in a mission many of them didn’t choose. Being a pastor’s wife doesn’t just mean being married to a pastor. It’s a way of life.

A Pre-Tribulational Rapture?

May 21, we’re told, is the end of it all. Harold Camping tells us it’s the day when the Rapture of the church will happen. Historic Christianity, of course, stands with Jesus over anyone who claims he knows the day or the hour of Jesus’ coming (Matt. 24:3-8). But what about the larger idea here? Is there a secret, sudden Rapture? Is that what we should expect?

Can Romance Novels Hurt Your Heart?

Pornography and romance novels aren’t (or at least aren’t always) morally equivalent, but they “work” the same way.

“That’s What I Love About Sunday” by Craig Morgan

On this week’s episode of “The Cross and the Jukebox,” I talk to Adam Dorsey, the writer of the hit song “That’s What I Love About Sunday,” recorded by Craig Morgan. Adam is now a pastor in California, and he has a unique perspective on life both sides of Music Row.

Osama Bin Laden and the Terror of Narcissism

Most of us, thank God, will never approach the wickedness that bin Laden unleashed on the world. But all of us wrestle with the same root pathology. That’s because, left to ourselves, we all share the same religion as Osama Bin Laden. It isn’t Islam; it’s self-worship.

Remember the Infertile on Mother’s Day

The Proverbs 31 woman needs our attention, but the 1 Samuel 1 woman does too.

The Normalization of Pride

When so many leaders are proud, it becomes very difficult for the Spirit-convicted psyche to discern, “Am I prideful, or am I a leader?”

Arousing Ourselves to Death

Every generation of Christians has faced the pornography question. But the situation is unique now. Pornography is not now simply available. With the advent of Internet technology, with its near universal reach and its promise of secrecy, pornography has been weaponized.

“Cup of Loneliness” by George Jones

Why does Jesus use the language of “cup” when speaking of the cross? And what does it have to do with the crosses Jesus promises all believers will have to carry?

What Has Earth Day to Do with Good Friday?

This Good Friday, and this Earth Day, we need to love what God loves: his entire creation. We need to conserve and care for the good earth that God has created. And we need to remember that, ultimately, the curse is rolled back by a bloody cross.

Mad Men and the Judgment of God

In a media-driven era, it is easy for us to think of our lives as a series of separate episodes, each compartmentalized from the other. But this isn’t unique to us. The Christian story tells us that, from the very beginning, the curse of sin holds people in an illusion that actions don’t have consequences precisely because those consequences aren’t immediate.
