Who’s Afraid of a Woman President?

In light of Michele Bachmann’s candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination, some are wondering how consistent it is for Christians to elect a woman to national office when they wouldn’t vote for her to serve as pastor of a local church. The question is a good one, and is more complicated than it first appears, to both sides.

Going Public: Your Child Can Thrive in Public School

There was a time when homeschooling was a very lonely place to be. Perhaps in some contexts it still is. But it seems that homeschooling has entered the mainstream and for many families is now the default option. Speaking from experience, as the father of 3 children who all attend local public schools, I can attest that public schooling can be a very lonely place as well… (Read more)

God's Approval Index

I recently found myself wondering what it would be like to have someone measuring my popularity on a day-to-day basis. It cannot be fun. I do not envy the president.

Undimmed & Undiminished

It was A.W. Tozer who wrote (in The Knowledge of the Holy), “what comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” That is a broad statement, a grand one, but one that merits some thought... (Read more)

Pornification

Let’s coin a term, shall we? You’ve heard of commercialization, and bureaucratization. How about “pornification”?

And What Do You Do?

The church is a place worthy of a life fully spent; the church is a place where someone can make a difference with their one and only life – maybe even the biggest possible difference; the church is the hope of the world.

“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.

Sinful Means to a Glorious End

Though it's popular to say, “Never criticize any method that God is blessing,” I am convinced that one of the greatest but most subtle spiritual dangers Christians face is pragmatism.

Christians Get Depressed Too

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.
