Books We Lie about Reading

A recent survey by the BBC found that the book most people lied about reading was not Tolstoy’s War and Peace, but Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. The ranking may surprise you, but what is actually more intriguing is why we lie about reading at all.

The Fingerprints of God

Lost in the revolving news cycles of the last few weeks was a finding that has rocked the scientific world. As one biochemist at the University of Oregon exclaimed: “It was a shock. If you asked anyone on our team if they thought one mutation was going to be responsible for this, they would have said it doesn’t seem possible.” Why?

Called to Preach

Ask anyone who wants to be a pastor why they want to be a pastor, and the answer is almost always the same: “I feel called to preach.” So why is it that so many people who want to preach, are preaching, or consider themselves gifted in preaching, aren’t very good at it?

Teaching Like Jesus

Following His famed “Sermon on the Mount,” the people marveled at Jesus’ teaching because He did not teach the way most teachers taught. The only word they could use to describe the difference was that Jesus taught with “authority,” unlike the scribes who were guided only by their own insights and traditions (Mt. 7:29).

I Like My Way of Doing It

Do you think we’re losing the battle in regard to the rise of the nones and the settling post-Christian nature of our world? If so, do you wonder why? You shouldn’t.

Silent Suffering and Dead Eyes

According to the Crimes Against Children Research Center, child pornography is one of the fastest growing businesses online with an estimated revenue of $3 billion a year. Most images are of the very young, and most are violent in nature.
