I mentioned a few weeks ago that Jared Byas & I had an e-book coming out soon through Patheos Press. Well, the time is nigh. It will be available on Monday through Amazon. It will only be $1.99 for the first few days so be sure to pick up a copy early next week. Here is […]
In 2007, A. J. Jacobs wrote the bestseller, The Year of Living Biblically: One Man’s Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible, which recounted his attempt to live according to Old Testament law for a solid year. People loved it and it sold like syrup at a dry pancake convention. In October […]
I suppose that title is a bit confusing. What I mean is this: what we think of God can be seen in what we expect of the Bible as God’s Word. Here is one example. If your vision of God is primarily (not exclusively) of a sovereign king, enthroned above, who communicates to his subjects through written decrees […]
David Williams, my friend and campus minister for InterVarsity in a state that is the epicenter of ACC basketball, recently ran–without my realizing it–an amazing series on C. S. Lewis on his blog resurrecting raleigh. David goes deeper than I do here, and I think you’ll like what he has to say. Here are the links to his […]

I have updated my list of upcoming and published books here (or on the “Books” tab above). I am letting you know in case any of you are thinking of how to spend your afternoon and can’t decide between Farmville, classic college bowling on ESPN, or watching your cat wash itself. Now you have a fourth choice.
Jared Byas has a great post today on how he and his wife have decided to raise a Christian family. Spoiler alert: it does not involve membership to Focus on the Family. You can read the entire post here….
“The scholar never fully knows in advance where his line of thought will lead him. For the Christian to undertake scholarship is to undertake a course of action that may lead him into the painful process of revising his actual Christian commitments, sorting through his beliefs, and discarding some from a position where they can […]
At GospelFutures, Neil Williams’s next post is up on the power of story for providing coherence for the human drama. He addressed “Why Story” in his previous post. Today he looks at the Christian story specifically. As far back as we have written records, humans have used stories to figure out their world and to […]
