Culture Watch

In years past, if you wanted to keep up with culture there would have been a “to read” list. Books and journals, periodicals and perhaps early blogs. That still matters (as a writer, forgive me for that vested interest), but increasingly there needs to be a “to watch” list. The most culturally influencing media is not the written word, but the visual form.

Study Disproves the Bible, Remember?

The news broke over so many media outlets I couldn’t even keep up. The trending headline? A genetic study had disproved a biblical claim. There’s just one little problem. The story actually proved the Bible right.

How to Explore Christianity Authentically

Christianity is the world’s largest religious faith with ~2.3 billion adherents around the globe. If you, or someone you know, is looking to authentically explore the Christian faith, I want to offer five suggestions to get you started on this journey.

Someone, Not Something

The deeply biblical idea of vocation presents a radical break from the privatization of our modern world and a revolutionary expansion of most Christian’s thinking about the nature of their lives. To see the job itself as a sacred act of worship is often beyond our spiritual vision.

Getting Ready for College (2017)

According to recent studies, almost half of all American college students will abandon their Christian faith during their undergraduate years. Half. The reason why? It seems to be far more than simple rebellion against an upbringing, or honest intellectual exploration.

Your Mind for God

Those who follow my writings know that the U.K. holds a special place in my heart. I’ve had the privilege of visiting several times, and of particular interest are places where C.S. Lewis made his mark on the world.

Defining Characteristics of Generation Z

They are growing up in a post-9/11 world. They are experiencing radical changes in technology and understandings of family, sexuality and gender. They live in multigenerational households, and the fastest-growing demographic within their age group is multiracial. Who are “they”? Generation Z.

We Are Strong (2017)

In "The Lord of the Rings", J.R.R. Tolkien writes of a race of ancient tree shepherds called the Ents. In the midst of the war between good and evil engulfing Middle-earth, the Ents are insular, worrying more about their lost Entwives. Many have fallen so deeply asleep that it is not clear whether they will ever reawaken. As Gandalf the wizard had earlier predicted, if the Ents awakened, they would discover they were strong.

Hills to Die On

It’s an old phrase, but a telling one: Which hills are you prepared to die on? Meaning, which stands are you going to take no matter the cost? For what are you prepared to die? Your answer will determine your core values, and until they are established, your church will not have a defined DNA. And that means it will not be set apart.

The Ten Boom House: Trusting God's Will

Trusting in God is an interesting thing. It involves a “letting go.” If I trust you with something, it means I give it to you. It passes from my hand to yours. It is no longer in my possession. If I have confidence in your character and abilities, there is a relief at the passing. I no longer worry or concern myself with the matter. It is, as they say, “in good hands.”
