Don't Adopt!

Children shatter your life-plan. Adoption certainly does. It’s worth it.

“God’s Own Fool,” by Michael Card

In today’s episode of “The Cross and the Jukebox” I talk with my favorite singer-songwriter, Michael Card, about his song, “God’s Own Fool.” It’s a song that’s changed me, and is constantly changing me; it’s a song that helped crucify my rationalism.

Why I Do What I Do

I told a story to our church this past weekend as part of the ending of a series on parenting. The more I’ve reflected on it, it’s about why I do what I do.

The Foundation of Mortification

Don’t run away from this blog post just because I’m quoting a Puritan. Yes, Puritans are scary with all their big words and frilly collars, but some of them had remarkable insights into God’s Word and into human hearts. Read on to see an example of that.

Gospel or Justice, Which?

Some evangelicals talk as though personal evangelism and public justice are contradictory concerns, or, at least, that one is part of the mission of the church and the other isn’t. I think otherwise.

The Speaking Circuit

I can understand why and how people could give up leading the local church in favor of the speaking circuit. I began to think about this as Rob Bell announced his resignation from Mars Hill just as I set out for 6 days of speaking engagements at a conference, a college and a church.

'Dry Wedding': Redundancy, or Oxymoron?

When you attend a wedding, do you expect there will, or will not, be alcohol served?

Pat Robertson Responds

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about Robertson’s comments on divorce and Alzheimer’s. More problematic, though, was Robertson’s flippant response to the abhorrent theology behind the whole issue...

John Calvin for Everybody

Calvin is too important to leave him frozen in caricature, and he’s too significant to leave him simply to his tribe of theological partisans. He offers rich insight to all in the Christian tradition, including those who consider themselves the furthest away from “Calvinism.”

More on Spiritual Abuse

How do we respond to spiritual abuse internally—in our own hearts, and how do we respond to spiritual abuse “externally”—in our relationship to the person hurting us?

Dead Last

In a recent opinion piece for the Wall Street Journal, Norm Augustine laments the weakening emphasis on the study of history.

An End to Trickle-Down Worship

There’s something refreshing and real about worship music that emerges in the context of a real, palpable local church.

The Under Protective Parent

There is much talk in our day about avoiding being “over protective,” but little to no talk on being “under protective.”

Did You Marry the Wrong Person?

I think most married people wonder that at one time or another. It may not be a question filled with true angst and regret, but one that may persist at the back of their mind.

Spiritual Abuse

Spiritual abuse is a term that seems to be gaining a little bit of traction with whole blogs dedicated to it. It describes a clear reality—that where there is spiritual authority in a sinful world, there will at times be abuse of that authority. However...

Whatever Happened to Evangelism?

It’s time someone wrote a book for the church titled 'Whatever Became of Evangelism?'

“Beer for My Horses,” by Toby Keith and Willie Nelson

Years ago, Toby Keith asked Willie Nelson if he’d record a song with him. When he heard that the song would be called “Beer for My Horses,” Nelson—to my understanding—was sold on the spot.
