Why the Afterlife Bores Us

I have long suspected that many Christians dread not just death but heaven. We won’t admit that, of course.

Steve Who?

Malcolm Gladwell claims that in 50 years, no one will remember Steve Jobs, but statues to Bill Gates will fill the Third World.

There Is No Cyberspace

A recent article in Salon suggests that the idea of cyberspace will soon come an end, and I tend to agree. While there would be some loss, I believe it would be a net gain. Maybe the way to begin is simply to stop using the term.

The Soul of a Leader

You may not know this, but ministry is spiritually hazardous to your soul.

New & Notable Book Reviews

I love writing book reviews and I love reading them. Since I cannot possibly read and review all of the interesting books out there, here are a few notable links I’ve collected recently:

Farewell to a "Church and Culture" Pope

We’ve all read the headlines about the historic resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, the first such resignation in over 600 years.

The Rich Tapestry of God's Providence

There are billions of stories unfolding in this world. What a joy it will be to trace these threads, these stories, to see how they are interwoven, and to praise God for his mercy and his grace in and through each one.

An Evangelical Looks at Pope Benedict XVI

With Pope Benedict XVI's shocking resignation this morning, evangelical Christians might be tempted to see this the way a college football fan might view the departure of his rival team's head coach. But the global stakes are much, much higher.

Songs That Save

Here’s the deal: We all have a song to sing that is ours alone. The key is to do it through who, and how, God made us.

Why Rosa Parks (Still) Matters

Rosa Parks’ example is about the future as much as the past. And Christians especially ought to reflect on what Rosa Parks’ civil disobedience reminds us about our life together in society.

So Long, Holden

A new school curriculum which will affect 46 out of 50 states will make it mandatory for at least 70 percent of books studied to be non-fiction. Why? To ready students for the workplace.

Risk Is Right

This is a good little book, just as it was a powerfully challenging chapter in "Don’t Waste Your Life."

The Seismic Shift in Outreach

There has been a seismic shift in outreach that few church leaders are understanding, much less pursuing.

In one of the more intriguing sociological studies of late, the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture at the University of Virginia has determined after a three-year study that families fall into four distinct groups.

An Interview and a Free Album

It was a week or two ago that I came across a band called The Gray Havens. I listened to a few clips and decided to pre-order their first album. It turns out that they are readers of this site. I thought it would be fun to do an interview and they thought it would be fun to give you a copy of their album.

The Truth about (Many) Christians and Evangelism

Churches all say the same thing: "We want to reach the world for Christ." Yet most don’t. So where’s the breakdown?

Abortion and the Gospel

Too often, pastors and church leaders assume that, when talking about abortion, their invisible debating partner is the “pro-choice” television commentator or politician. Not so.

More Lessons Learned Along the Way

A few months ago I shared a few lessons I’ve learned along the way—a few things I’ve learned about preaching since I rather unexpectedly found myself regularly standing in the pulpit. I want to add a couple of items to my list.

Does It Matter Which Bible We Use?

The Old Testament was written in the language of its writers, which was Hebrew, and the New Testament was written in the language of its writers -- or at least the dominant language of commerce and culture -- which was Greek. The Bibles we read are translations of those languages into the English language. So does it matter which Bible we use?

It’s a common phrase in Christian circles. We talk of "discipling" someone, "being" discipled, or going where there is a strong emphasis on discipleship. What’s wrong with this picture?
